Review: Three Olives Cucumber Lime Vodka

Three Olives Cucumber Lime Vodka was just released.  Three Olives Fresh Watermelon Vodka was also launched.  Cucumber is a surprisingly popular vodka with over a dozen cucumber flavored vodka’s already on the market.  Lime is clearly cucumbers favorite dance partner as Three Olives is the forth cucumber lime flavored vodka.  At one time Three Olives made over 30 flavored vodka’s.  A lot of these flavors can still be found at major liquor stores.  It is unclear as to how many of these flavors are still made, but the recently updated Three Olives website only shows 12 varieties.    Read more »

Review: Rain Cucumber Vodka

rain-cucumber-vodka-copyRain Cucumber Vodka is made from corn at the Buffalo Trace Distiller in Frankfort Kentucky.  After seven distinct distillations and a polishing stage that adds limestone water, natural flavors are infused before bottling at 60 proof.  Rain Vodka was one of the first organic vodkas, and at one time they offered an Organics line of flavored vodkas, which included Cucumber-Lime, Red Grape Hibiscus, Lavender Lemonade, and Honey Mango flavors.  These have been replaced by a lineup that includes only two flavors, Cucumber and Mango.  Gone from the bottles label is the word Organic.  This leads me to believe these vodkas are no longer produced with organic corn.

Review: Svedka Cucumber Lime Vodka

Svedka Cucumber Lime - CopySvedka Cucumber Lime Vodka was just released.  It is one of 13 Svedka flavors currently available.  Svedka is the number one imported vodka in the US.  While cucumber may not be a flavor one thinks of when compiling a list of vodka flavors, this is the eighth cucumber flavored vodka I’ve reviewed, and there are probably another eight I haven’t reviewed yet.  Each 750ml bottle of Svedka is made with 4 pounds of Swedish winter wheat.  The vodka is distilled 5 times in a continuous distillation process.  At the final stage the vodka is run through high performance purification columns five separate times to remove impurities.  Natural flavors are then infused before bottling in Bardstown Kentucky.

Review: Effen Cucumber Vodka

effen cucumber - CopyEffen Cucumber vodka is one of five vodka flavors Effen creates in Holland starting with a 120 year old recipe.  They start with Dutch grown wheat and pure spring water that has been further filtered through reverse osmosis.  A low temperature continuous rectification process is used to avoid caramelization of the sugars .  This eliminates the bitter after taste found in some vodka’s.  The vodka is then filtered five times through active carbon in a bottom-up filtration process.  Natural cucumber and vanilla flavor is added before bottling at 75 proof in their trademark rubber wrap around bottle.  Effen was not the first cucumber flavored vodka nor the last.  I last counted 9 different cucumber vodka’s on the market today.  Read more »
