August Product News from the Vodka Emporium
As the end of summer approaches its time to make the most of the lat few sunny days we may have. With this in mind we have a few vodkas for you to try out this month. We have two newcomers from the most popular brand in the world as well as a Super Premium Vodka that is coming to the end of the road.Smirnoff Apple Vodka
It has to be said that there can’t be too many people who drink vodka that don’t know about the world famous brand of Smirnoff. When it comes to the UK most are familiar with the standard supermarket staple which is Smirnoff Red. Most probably know about Smirnoff Blue and a few die hard fans are aware of Smirnoff Black Vodka.
However when it comes to flavours I think you’ll be surprised to know that Smirnoff actually produce nearly a dozen in different countries throughout the world. This summer Smirnoff have unveiled two of these to the UK market. One of which is the Smirnoff Green Apple Vodka. This drink is a refreshing blend of green apples and vodka that is an ideal base for numerous cocktails. If cocktails aren’t your fancy then try it with just soda or a mixer of your choice.
Smirnoff Lime Vodka
Now I’m not going to bore you with the same details relating to Smirnoff flavoured vodka so ill get straight to the product here. Smirnoff Green Apple Flavored Vodka is made with the essence of green apple flavours and as with the standard Red Smirnoff is distilled three times. If your expecting a difference in quality to the usual Smirnoff you find in bars, you wont find that here. Again this is a great base for cocktails and with some mixers such as lemonade and ice it would do the trick.
Finally this month it’s with great disappointment that we find out that the superb Xellent Vodka is no longer being imported into the UK. We do hope this isn’t permanent and we’re still awaiting confirmation as to whether they have seized production altogether, when we do have news we’ll let everyone know. Interestingly it was illegal to distill vodka in Switzerland until as recently as 1999!
Xellent Vodka is Swiss produced and the base ingredient is pure first-class Swiss Picasso and Matador rye. This is all grown in the foothills of central Switzerland. After the distillation process the vodka is then diluted with water from the Titlis glacier in Engelberg.
With Xellent you end up with a virtually neutral spirit that tastes surprisingly sweet with a lemony undertone.
Xellent really is fantastically smooth for vodka, and it really shouldn’t be missed if you haven’t tried it. If you have then you’ll certainly want to make a purchase soon as we only have the last few cases in stock.
Currently we have an offer of free delivery on any order that contains Xellent vodka.
