The palate is in full agreement with the nose delivering a sweet and tart berry core with accents of black tea, nuts, and cranberry.

Medium-bodied with a sweet berry core with loads of vibrant acidity and thick tannins that offer structure.

Cool Factor

A

Flavored Vodka is not a sexy category but that doesn't mean that a flavored Vodka can't be sexy. Van Gogh is one of the very few brands on which you can rely.

Value Grade

B

Sold in the middle $20 range it sits on par with the top quality flavored Vodkas on offer while offering unique flavors that can only be found in this bottle.

Analysis

The Van Gogh Acai-Blueberry offers a unique take on the berry flavored Vodkas. While most are cloyingly sweet and one-dimensional this tasty flavored Vodka deftly delivers sweet and tart berry flavors with a refreshing dose of acid and an unexpected tannin structure thanks to the acai berry. In addition to the desirable aromatics and flavors, the color is mesmerizing. Van Gogh is made in small batches at Distillery Cooymans International in Tilburg, Holland by third generation master distiller Tim Vos. Van Gogh offers 16 expressions, 15 flavors, and their flagship, unflavored triple wheat Van Gogh Vodka.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled or in a wide range of cocktails. I would suggest mixing the Van Gogh Acai-Blueberry with Prosecco as it's a great combination and you get to preserve the magnificent color.
