Review of "Camitz Sparkling Vodka"
Camitz Sparkling Vodka, is an absolutely astonishing drink. Because it is actually some very fine Swedish Vodka that has been carbonated so that it fizzes like a good quality Champagne or a bottle of Asti Spumanti!The fist thing you should notice is that it forbids bottles to be placed and stored in a deep freezer. This is because it is a pressurised glass bottle.
The bottle looks very much like a small champagne bottle -it even has a Champagne style cork in a wire cage. Some care should be taken when opening the bottle. After all, it is under pressure and it does pay to be careful!Although they do emphasise that the bottles should never be put in the freezer, they do recommend chilling it properly before drinking it.
When I first tried Camitz Sparkling Vodka I was in for a pleasant surprise. The taste of Camitz Sparkling Vodka is very interesting in its own right, before you take into consideration the fact that it is a carbonated Vodka.It has the typical flavour of Vodkas (a result of the ethyl alcohol, or so I believe) but there's more to it than that. Camitz Sparkling Vodka has several tastes that I found not exactly easy to pin down.
Vanilla? Yes, I think vanilla, but with a faint hint of something else. A sweet taste, like honey spread over a lightly-toasted summer's day? Well, not quite but that's a rough approximation of the taste.The addition of the bubbles to Camitz Sparkling Vodka actually enhances the taste, causing little flavoursome bubbles to burst on your tongue, on the roof of your mouth and the top of your throat as it glides effortlessly down.
Camitz Sparkling Vodka is 40% proof.
Camitz Sparkling Vodka is distilled in Sweden and is made by using grain from Scandinavian wheat fields. (I must admit, I didn't know they grew wheat in Scandinavia). The water is from the underground springs of Töllsjö, where, it is said, the balance of minerals is ideal for distilling a superior type of vodka.Continuously distilled five times, the vodka is then carbonated using a specially filtered gas, claimed to be the cleanest of its kind anywhere in the world.
Recommended retail prices for Camitz Sparkling Vodka are £13.99 (200ml) and £29.99 (700ml).
It is available in Selfridges and on line at www.firebox.com and www.drinkshop.com.If it goes flat, there's no problem. It merely becomes a fine non-carbonated premium quality Swedish vodka.
