Valhalla Vodka

It’s been a while since something interesting on the boozy front has come my way. This vodka has flavour (without being actually flavoured) coming from a residual barley mash that hasn’t been fully filtered out. This really is sipping vodka, no need to mix this stuff though a decent mixologist could do something subtle with it. Valhalla Vodka won a Gold Medal from the “Beverage Tasting Institute (BTI) of Chicago in July of 2014. Following an independent, professional blind tasting, the Beverage Tasting Institute gave Valhalla Vodka a rating of 93 points (Exceptional), and described the artisan spirit as:

Clear in color. Bold aromas of toasty raisin bran and apricot granola with a soft, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a honeyed melon, cream, and delicate pepper finish. Lots of fruit character that will make for flavor-packed cocktails.”
