This is, without doubt, the best Canuck tipple that I’ve had. It may well be the best vodka I’ve ever had. I can’t imagine a serious mixologist not having this as the essential base for mixing vodka-based classics or as the ideal canvas against which to create some new cocktails. Just a smidgeon warms the cockles of the heart but beware: smooth as this is, you don’t want to pickle your innards. If a bottle of Scotch at 40% or 43% abv can power a car (yes, I’ve done this), then can you can imagine what Elixir could do.

Fields for amusing alcohol jokes: “Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake”.
