What kind of vodka is it?
Well, the question which vodka it is now is difficult to answer. It is not a clear water like "Belvedere" or "Grey Goose", it is also not a flowery fruity like "Carnival" or "Ciroc". One thing is clear: it is pure, noble and tells a story. So it's not a cheap vodka and that would be outrageous at this price. In fact, I don't think it's a vodka at all, but rather a vodka-based macerated gin. So let's take a bottle of Beluga Vodka as a base and tip it into a kettle. At the beginning it smells fine like a bouquet garni consisting of power giving coriander and sweet-bitter seductive cardamom. I would even say that a few leaves of lovage have sneaked in to add their unique scent to this gin. Gradually a rose joins in, floating singly on this pot while the bouquet garni finds itself at the bottom of the cauldron. Oh it seems we forgot a ladle for stirring and occasional testing. Well the former we can fortunately remedy with the rhubarb growing there among the lilies of the valley. So we take a thick stick to stir and when we break off the stick the white floral scent of the lily of the valley around it rises to our noses. So why not, it certainly won't hurt. And yes very well, they did the drink good they give the gin a soft fluffiness and a nice green note. The stirrer aka rhubarb is just left in the kettle. And overnight this maceration just stays outside in this beautiful garden. Unfortunately, it storms over night and it breaks a small moss-covered branch off and lands in the pot. The pot spills over and so does the single beautiful rose blossom that was floating on top. The next morning we want to taste our mazeriertrn gin and realize, the rhubarb was possibly a little too long in it, because the gin took towards the end of a slightly sweet fruity note is embedded in all the herbs and earthy notes. But in itself, the taste is still nice subtle purist, after all, it pulled only one night. Tastes it does all times, you could well make a light gentle Moscow Mule abwandlung with 8cl each Bundabergs Blood Orange Brew and Ginger Beer, 2 cl Yuzu juice and 6cl of this macerated "Vodka, served on the Rocks".
