Welcome to our first review of 2010, it’s been a while since we have featured a Vodka review on our blog but now the festive season is over and most people have recovered it’s time to get back down to business!
Red Wolf is a fairly recent entrant to the ultra competitive vodka market and sits in the fierce £25-£35 category. I’m sure you all know that this is the territory of the world renowned Grey Goose brand as well as Belvedere. Then throw in Snow Leopard, Snow Queen as well as the British entrants from Wight and Chase and you start to realise that this part of the market isn’t for the faint hearted or poorly produced products!
I first heard about Redwolf almost twelve months ago and in that time they have certainly been busy building the brand and getting awareness out in the market place.
First impressions of the bottle are nothing spectacular, thankfully not gimmicky and a nice change not to have a ridiculous back story to the product. This means that the product has to do the talking in its own right. So as the producers state, will it really go down as water should?
Redwolf Vodka is made from natural grain and distilled four times at a private distillery in Russia.
The result of this is a wonderfully smooth vodka that was truly a pleasant surprise. Maybe I was sceptical after a few dodgy vodkas we tried in the tail end of 2009!
Having drunk this neat as well as with a splash of Cranberry, I can honestly say Redwolf Vodka really stands up to the competition. If you usually drink Grey Goose or Belvedere then this really is a viable alternative.
We always like to try something new at The Emporium and thankfully it wasn’t just talk, as the vodka really is smooth, you should really give this a go as Redwolf Vodka is a great drink!
