Review: Devotion Wild Cherry Vodka

by Jeff Ellingson

Devotion Wild Cherry Vodka is one of six sugar free flavored vodka’s in the Devotion Spirits stable.  The other flavors include Coconut, Blood Orange, Black and Blue, Perfect Cosmo, and Tiki.  They also produce an unflavored Pure vodka.  These vodka’s are made from 100% corn base and are distilled six times at Death Door Distillery in Middleton Wisconsin.  Devotion Vodka was launched by Founder Drew Adelman November 2009 with the release of the worlds first protein infused vodka.  In creating their flavored vodka’s, Drew teamed up with Allen Flavors, the maker of Arizona Iced Tea to develop a process of eliminating sugars as a flavoring agent in vodka.  Devotion Wild Cherry Vodka uses an essence process along with natural flavor compounds.The aroma has a nice burst of fresh black cherry juice and Cherry Twizzlers Licorice.  The sweet entry packs natural black cherry flavor without the added sweetener most cherry flavored vodkas have.  It is also absent the cherry cough drop taste several cherry flavored vodkas have.  The intensity builds to a just right wild cherry peak, and fades with creamy New York Cherry ice cream flavor.  The finish is warm, dry, and peppery, with crisp straight vodka taste.  Devotion Wild Cherry is a tasty vodka with natural wild cherry flavor.  Most flavored vodka’s weigh in at 70 proof.  Some even 60 proof.  Devotion Wild Cherry is bottled at 80 proof and the higher octane is obvious in heat, sting, and straight vodka taste on the finish.
