JewelRussia Berry Vodka – The intense flavor and aroma that results from this traditional process far surpasses any flavored vodkaand the existing popular vodka-juice compounds. Unlike a number of vodka distillers they use a blend of hard winter wheat and rye using water drawn from deep artesian wells (over 500 ft.). It is distilled 5 times, then filtered 5 times, each using the usual Russian method of paper, sand, then finally through specially-modified charcoal made from the stones of peaches and apricots, a special technique of the Chernogolovka distillery.
Tasting Notes Of Jewel Russia Berry Vodka
Clear, no sediment whatsoever. On swirling, it leaves a a thicker clear coat on the inside of the glass and almost seems a bit viscous. Nice deep red color that is not the result of adding some red dye – a refreshing change from the usual!
Fruity,slightly acidic, very true cranberry smells.
Sweet entry, very slight warming of alcohol as it goes down the throat, and a acidic/astringent finish from the cranberries. Nice firm mineral taste to the water component. Slightly woody taste that may be useful for cocktails- not sure how to use it but unusual and useful at the same time.
Makes for a very nice Cosmo. Could also be quite the addition to a punch or glog. Also could be used instead of Maraschino or Kirsch for a twist on a recipe calling for either.
A very nice infusion of cranberry and vodka and a very worthy bottle for any mixologist’s bar. Flavor is excellent and the outstanding vodka base is a plus. It is very rare to find an infused vodka out there – flavored ones abound but are pale imitations. This one is definitely worth hunting down.
