Uluvka Vodka

Member Review by drinkemporium:

U’luvka vodka was for a long time something of an enigma here at the Vodka Emporium. Is it just a gimmick, is it of decent quality, does is it give you good value for money? Well we thought it was about time we did some serious investigation into this vodka that has something of a growing following in the UK. There is no shying away that the majority of people are drawn into the product because of its unique bottle design. The bottle itself was designed by Aloof Design and represents both male and female energies. The U’Luvka logo also has an interesting fact as it is said to be an ancient alchemical glyph containing the symbols for male, female, sun and moon. U’luvka has a great history to it as well, the origins of the drink goes back to the alchemists of the 17th century Polish Royal Court. Once you get over the uniqueness of the products appearance we get to the quality of the vodka itself. Well I have to be honest that I was quite surprised at the high quality, it has a smooth, clean crisp taste which is way better than most triple distilled vodkas. For those of you that like to know a bit more detail on the vodka taste then here we go! Unlike many non flavoured types of vodka, this has a distinct floral aroma and no hint of overpowering fumes that some vodka in this price category has. Before you even pour a glass you are confident that you won’t be disappointed. Once you have your first taste there is an unmistakable hint of chocolate that is followed by a creamy buttery finish. If you savour the drink you will notice that there is an element of spice thrown in as well. All in all you are treated to a variety of flavours across the palate spectrum and none that are to overpowering. I certainly didn’t expect the flavours to be as fresh and long lasting as I found and if someone asked if they should try this instead of the usual Grey Goose or Belvedere Vodka then I would certainly recommend it. This brings me to the price, as I just mentioned I’d certainly favour this over the traditional Grey Goose, Belvedere offerings and with U’luvka only a couple of pounds more expensive is certainly good value. The final verdict from us is that if you want to try something different and don’t want to fork out for a bottle of Ultra Premium vodka then you can’t go wrong with a bottle of U’Luvka. It’s certainly a talking point at a dinner party when you bring the bottle out and your guests will be pleasantly surprised with the vodka itself. If you usually favour the traditional Grey Goose or Belvedere then definitely try a change with U’Luvka. We’ve been convinced at the quality, so much so we’ve added the Magnum to our range and our regulars know we only stock the best quality vodka in magnums.

Distilled from wheat, rye and barley three times in Western Poland. This award winning vodka delivers flavors of spice, citrus and butter with an incredibly long smooth finish. Try Uluvka at room temperature before you chill it.
