Vodka is booming. Due to its ever-growing popularity there has been a certified vodka flood in the last few years, with countless new producers clamouring over each other to satisfy the demands of vodka fans around the world. Occasionally, a product lands in our hands that stands well outside this ruck. Some vodkas don't have to fight for plaudits; these spirits speak for themselves. Beluga Vodka is one of these effortlessly classy premium vodkas. We'll introduce it a bit more, and if we end up whetting your appetite for a taste, remember: Beluga Vodka is available to purchase in the online shop at Urban Drinks.
Beluga is a Russian vodka, produced at the Mariinsky Distillery in the Kemerovo Oblast. The distillery where Beluga is created has been in operation since 1900. Beluga Vodka's home is arguably the best distillery in Russia today, famous for its high-tech equipment and its on-site artesian well. And when one considers that 60% of the recipe for Beluga Vodka is mineral water, the on-site well can't hurt. Deeply rooted in its central Russian locality (and where could be better for a vodka?), Beluga Vodka is a noble spirit that unites prestigious tradition with noble style.
The unforgettable aroma of Beluga Vodka
Beluga Vodka is seductive from the first whiff thanks to its subtle aromas of lemon and spices. Hopes that this first impression will continue onto the palate are fully satisfied, for Beluga Vodka glows with the fresh taste of citrus, complemented here too by a range of subtle spicy tones. Beluga's delightful and mildly sweet finish is not to be missed. With a wonderful array of flavours, Beluga Vodka is a vodka that grabs attention like someone reading Dan Brown on a train. Except that the attention Beluga demands is coloured with admiration, not eye-rolling despair or laugh-cramming ridicule.
Beluga Vodka in brilliant cocktails!
As well as being a delight to drink neat or in shot form, Beluga Vodka, which you can purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks, is of course a wonderful base for cocktails. The 'Cabanna' is an unmissable mix that brings the best out of Beluga.
- 20ml Beluga Vodka
- 20ml cream
- 20ml banana liqueur
- 50ml banana juice
Hold the Beluga Vodka back for a moment. Shake the cream, the banana juice, and the banana liqueur in a shaker over ice. Put the Beluga Vodka into a glass with another ice cube or two and strain the mixture into it. Garnish with a couple of blueberries and enjoy!
Another refreshing cocktail to enjoy Beluga Vodka in is the Moskoje. Sure, you can use any old vodka, but you're far more certain to captivate palates if you bring out the Beluga.
- 40ml Beluga Vodka
- 80ml grapefruit juice
- 40ml passionfruit juice
- 40ml peach juice
Just pour the Beluga and the rest into a cocktail shaker, add a couple of ice cubes, and rough the mixture up. Strain over a highball glass. The Moskoje is a refreshing treat that's bound to get your party guests talking, and is kept extra lively and clean by the wonderful vodka from Beluga.
