Produced from French grapes harvested when frozen, then cold-fermented into wine, distilled five (yes five!) times and packaged in a fantastically heavy bottle, Ciroc is one of a new breed of ultra-premium vodkas manufactured in France.
I have a tough time when it comes to this vodka; to me a vodka should be neutral and smooth. While smooth this is, neutral it isn't.
It is however an amazing spirit and my vodka of choice in a vodka martini. It has a wonderful fruity note that comes from the grapes. While the Stolichnaya Elit is definitely the best traditional vodka I've tried, I just can't stop myself reaching for this time after time.

Cirrocumulus isn't. Owned by Moët Hennessy. It is 50/50 with diageo and p diddly....I know this as I work with diageo. I work with this brand every day. Daddy's involvement as ambassador is only in the US.
Anyway, it's a great vodka. I wouldnt try to claim it is better or worse than other brands but it is right up ere beside the best names money can buy. 5 times filtered French grape vodka. Other variants are available in the US

It's a 50-50 joint venture between Puffy Daddy and Diageo. I tasted it before I knew this and don't care either way. It's a great vodka to drink straight. Up there with Grey Goose.

Owned by both Diageo and Diddy. Unfortunately overexposed in tacky hip-hop videos. Diddy has even made a song called Ciroc Star, where he claims to own the company. Still, a fantastic vodka made of french grapes.
