Review: Ciroc Summer Colada Vodka

Ciroc Summer Colada Vodka is a limited edition vodka available in very limited quantities at liquor stores and top hotspots nationwide.  It joins a flavored vodka lineup that includes Amaretto, Apple, Coconut, Mango, Peach, Pineapple, and Red Berry.  The vodka base for each of these flavors comes from a blend of Ugni Blanc and Mauzac Blanc grapes.  The juice is made into a wine.  The wine is distilled four times in stainless column stills by Master Distiller Jean-Sebastien Robicquet at his 500 year old family owned Maison Villevert Distillery.  A fifth distillation follows in a traditional custom copper pot still at Distillerie de Chevanceaux in the South of France.  Coconut, Pineapple, and other natural flavors are infused before bottling at 70 proof in an all white bottle.  The Ciroc brand was first launched in 2003, but it wasn’t until Diageo partnered with Sean Combs in 2007 that the brands blew up.  Combs is responsible for managing all Ciroc lifestyle branding and marketing initiatives.
