Vincent Van Gogh Espresso Flavoured Vodka (700ml)
The complete range of Van Gogh Vodkas are produced under contract at Dirkzwager Distillery, in Schiedam Holland, a family owned company established 125 years ago. Besides producing their own brands, the distillery also produce many private labels, including Van Gogh, various vodka-based Liqueurs and Amsterdam vodkas.
Dirkzwager Distilleries Master Distiller, Mr. Tim Vos, handcrafts Van Gogh Vodka in small batches using the finest grains - primarily a combination of wheat and a little corn and barley. The vodka is distilled twice in column stills and then a third time in a traditional pot still to produce a spirit of the highest refinement. The copper pot still takes the "bite" out of the alcohol, making the vodka particularly smooth. Purified water which is considered superior over distilled water is employed. Mr. Vos believes that when water is distilled, it takes the character out and the water becomes a liquid without identity. Mr.Vos's desire and passion to continuously achieve perfection is evident in his award-winning vodkas, all made through this same multiple distillation process.
Van Gogh Espresso Vodka utilizes Columbian coffee beans, which are then infused with premium grain alcohol. This is a quick and thrifty solution for creating a classic Espresso Martini.
Tasting note: Crystal clear appearance. What a compelling opening sniff! Equates to dipping your nose into a bag of freshly ground coffee. Stunning purity. The initial impact subsides, but only marginally, with the aromas turning towards milk chocolate and gently toasted coconut. Retains excellent intensity even after ample aeration, as many other flavoured vodkas don’t. A soft, silky entry leads into a mid palate burst of creamy coffee flavours that just avoids been overly sweet. A subtle spirit warmth adds depth. Dries towards the finish with a persistent cafe-creme, marzipan note returning into the aftertaste. A stunning effort! 35% Alc./Vol.
