Review: New Amsterdam Raspberry Vodka
New Amsterdam Raspberry Vodka was just released. This is New Amsterdam’s ninth flavored vodka. New Amsterdam Lemon was also recently introduced. These two flavors should not be confused with New Amsterdam Citron made with Lemon and Lime flavor, or New Amsterdam Red Berry made with Blackberry, Strawberry and Raspberry flavor. New Amsterdam Vodka is part of the growing line of spirits produced by E&J Gallo, that includes New Amsterdam Gin, Shellback Rum, Rum Haven Coconut Rum, Familia Camarena Tequila, and E&J Brandy. New Amsterdam Raspberry Vodka is made from the finest grains. It is distilled 5 times and filtered 3 times. Natural Raspberry flavors are infused before bottling at 70 proof.The aroma is raspberry bubblegum with a corn vodka backing. The sweet raspberry Jell-O entry is joined by natural tart raspberry taste. It fades sweet, and very tart. The finish is bittersweet and dry with gentle warmth, a mild alcohol burn, and corn vodka aftertaste. Priced around $11, I picked up my bottle for $8.99, New Amsterdam is a value brand that offers a nice raspberry flavor burst, that will mix well in a cocktail.
