Flavoured vodkas have only recently become fashionable, but the earliest vodkas were always flavoured, though that was entirely due to necessity. When commercial distillation got underway, during the 14-15th centuries, the original technology was obviously crude, and distillers lacked the ability to rectify ('purify') the spirit.
V Gallery Marshmallow is a delicious combination of five times distilled Italian vodka, a hint of grappa and marshmallow flavours - expertly blended to create a tasty flavoured vodka that's best served chilled.
V Gallery Mango Crush is made using quintuple distilled Italian vodka with a hint of grappa, which is then flavour infused to create a fruity flavoured vodka, especially delicious when mixed with fruit juice.
A delightful rose vodka from our Russian friends, Sputnik Rose is pleasantly flroal without being too sweet or sickly. Made by infusing Sputnik vodka with natural rose oils from the Damask Rose grown by the Black Sea in Russia and Ukraine.
A rather unusual flavoured vodka from Sputnik, triple distilled and infused with handpicked organic Horseradish from a farm with sells to the top Russian restaurants. This also makes a great spicy Bloody Mary - just add tomato juice and season to your taste - and is a perfect match for a steak.
A spicy vodka from Stolichnaya, the perfect counterpart to the other spirit they released at the same time - Sticki. This was launched in 2012 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of flavour vodkas from Stolichnaya.
Comparatively new Finlandia variant from a company that was one of the earliest into the flavoured vodka category. As you would expect from Finlandia, this is a very clean vodka and the flavours are upfront but not OTT. Recommended.
