Review: Svedka Blue Raspberry Vodka

Svedka Blue Raspberry Vodka was just released.  It is one of 14 Svedka flavors currently available.  They also produce an 80 and 100 proof unflavored vodka.  Svedka is the number one imported vodka in the US, and while flavored vodka sales have fallen recently, Svedka’s flavored vodka sales have continued to grow.  Svedka Blue Raspberry vodka starts with a vodka base made from Swedish winter wheat.  Four pounds are required to produce one 75o ml bottle.  The vodka is distilled 5 times in a continuous distillation process.  Ice cold water from Swedish springs is blended to reduce to proof.  The vodka is then run through high performance purification columns five separate times to remove impurities.  Natural flavors are infused before bottling at 70 proof.  Svedka is the fifth vodka brand I am aware of to produce a blue raspberry vodka flavor.  The others include UV, Wave, Burnetts, and Ursus.

Review: Svedka Citron Vodka 75 Proof

Svedka Citron Original Bottle - CopySvedka Citron vodka was introduced in 2005.  At the time it was bottled at 75 proof.  It is currently bottled at 70 proof.  As my regular readers know I built a collection of over 600 spirits before I launched Best Tasting Spirits.  My goal was to post a new review every day for at least the first two years.  Because I waited I now have a bottle of the old and new Svedka Citron.  After tasting both there appears to be more then just a difference in alcohol content, so I will review each of them.  This review is for the 75 proof version.  Four pounds of Swedish winter wheat is needed to craft each 750ml bottle.  A continuous distillation process is used prior to the vodka is run through high performance purification columns five separate times to remove impurities.  Ice cold water from Swedish springs is then blended with the vodka before natural citrus flavor is infused.

Review: Svedka Grapefruit Jalapeno Vodka

svedka grapefruit jalapeno - CopySvedka Grapefruit Jalapeno vodka was just introduced along with an unflavored 100 proof vodka.  This is the third new grapefruit flavored vodka launched this year.  While grapefruit may be the hottest taste, heat is another popular trend.  Heat and higher alcohol content.  Svedka also introduced a 100 proof vodka.  Heat in the form of cinnamon flavor, Fireball cinnamon whisky, and their many clones.  Heat in the form of peppers, Pinnacle Habanero vodka.  It was only a matter of time before someone combined the two.  SGJ is crafted in Lidkoping Sweden with four pounds of Swedish winter wheat needed for each 750 ml bottle.  They use a continuous distillation process and then run the vodka through high performance purification columns five separate times to remove impurities.  Ice cold water from Swedish underground springs is then blended in before all natural grapefruit and jalapeno flavors are infused with the vodka.

Review: Svedka Grape Vodka

svedka grape vodka - CopySvedka Grape vodka was introduced June 2011.  When launched it was their sixth flavored vodka.  While Svedka currently features twelve vodka varieties on their website, Grape is not one of them.  I still see the occasional bottle of Grape Svedka at liquor stores and it is still sold on the web, but availability is limited and it will soon be gone.  It is made with ice cold water from Swedish underground springs and four pounds of Swedish winter wheat are used for each 750ml bottle.  They use a continuous distillation process and then run the vodka through high performance purification columns five separate times to remove impurities.  Natural West Coast grown Concord grape flavor is added before bottling at 70 proof.
