Leaf Vodka - organic and unique
Leaf Vodka is a whole new thing. It's organic. And there are currently two different option - based on the water they're made from.
One variety is made from Alaskan glacial water and the other is made from Rocky Mountain mineral water. Since there were two types, I had to taste-test them side-by-site, right?
They were distinctly different. The Alaskan was slightly sweeter, with citrus notes. The Rocky Mountain was sharper with hits of ... well, minerals. Both of them were very sippable and very very smooth.
This is the kind of vodka you'd use in a drink where the vodka is a prominent flavor - like a martini. Or in a cocktail with a mild-flavored mixer, like tonic water or club soda. Or if you're mixing it with a small amount of fresh juice or a quality prepared juice. This vodka really deserved to shine. Save the cheap orange juice for something else.
Possibly irrelevant is that the bottles look really cool. Not important if you shove them into a cabinet, but if you display your liquors, those will stand out. I tend to re-use interesting-looking bottles, so these will probably be around for a while after the vodka is gone.
Do you like quality vodka? Seek these out.
I'll have a cocktail using these over on Cookistry later. So look for it.
Who's it for: People who like quality liquor.
Cons: Might be hard to find in your local area.
Wishes: Hoping they'll come up with more versions, since the first two are so good.
