This vodka uses real fruit infused into the base spirit to achieve its flavors.
Notes: This vodka is produced in Orange County, California. An interesting hybrid of maceration/infusion rather than the usual attempt at flavoring spirits which at best involves extracts, at worst chemical equivalents and dyes.This vodka uses real fruit infused into the base spirit to achieve its flavors.
Appearance: Attractive rose pink color, clear with no sediment whatsoever. On swirling, it leaves a clear coat on the inside of the glass and develops some legs.
First Impression: Wonderful rose/pink/blush color to it. Deep, but ethereal smell of cranberries. Captures the essence of cranberry very nicely.
Taste: Cranberries with the appropriate tartness that should be there (not some sugared up cranberry juice taste) the lingering finish from the berries as an aftertaste.
Drinks: A a nice flavoring to use instead of cranberry juice, but a touch mild as a substitute for vodka. Mixes nicely.
Final Thoughts: An interesting and worthwhile product looking for a market. Does it have a niche?, We are not sure – but it is pleasing to the senses, seeing, tasting, and smelling.
As an aside, though, I have to say this is more of a infusion or flavoring than an outright vodka to me- and one has to look at it in that way- the lower proof puts it more into a flavoring/infusion category than the more traditional flavored vodkas. That being said, it is nicely done with a wonderful presentation.
Bottle: Distinctive flattened oval shape and attractive silk screened graphics and a handful of cranberries floating at the shoulder.
