Van Gogh Espresso Flavored Vodka
It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since the Van Gogh Espresso was first introduced. It's as good as ever thanks to the talents of third-generation distiller Tim Voss and his unique double-infusion method. This superb espresso flavor is made from fresh cracked Colombian beans with a subtle compliment of cocoa. If you close your eyes you can actually believe that you are nosing a chilled espresso.
Van Gogh is made in relatively small batches at the Royal Dirkzwager Distillery in Schiedam, Holland. Van Gogh’s Master Distiller Tim Vos attributes their success to their unique “double infusion” method and to the fact that they create over two dozen variations of any new flavor before selecting a winner. While the brand is just a decade in age, this distillery has been creating great spirits for well over 100 years.
Brilliant, crystal clear. The nose is filled with scents of dark roasted coffee with supporting notes of fresh cream, brown sugar, and cocoa nibs, with a hint of vanilla. The palate echoes the nose while offering more lush and intense flavors than the nose suggested. It's just sweet enough to carry the flavors from the fore-palate to the finish with trailing notes of crushed coffee bean. It's medium-bodied with bright and genuine flavors that offer as many subtle notes as assertive flavors.
How to Serve
Enjoy this unique flavored Vodka on ice or in any number of cocktails where a pure and expressive coffee note is desired.
