Xellent Vodka

Member Review by drinkemporium:

Finally this month it’s with great disappointment that we find out that the superb Xellent Vodka is no longer being imported into the UK. We do hope this isn’t permanent and we’re still awaiting confirmation as to whether they have seized production altogether, when we do have news we’ll let everyone know. Interestingly it was illegal to distill vodka in Switzerland until as recently as 1999! Xellent Vodka is Swiss produced and the base ingredient is pure first-class Swiss Picasso and Matador rye. This is all grown in the foothills of central Switzerland. After the distillation process the vodka is then diluted with water from the Titlis glacier in Engelberg. With Xellent you end up with a virtually neutral spirit that tastes surprisingly sweet with a lemony undertone. Xellent really is fantastically smooth for vodka, and it really shouldn’t be missed if you haven’t tried it. If you have then you’ll certainly want to make a purchase soon as we only have the last few cases in stock.

Tried Xellent for the first time this weekend. I found it to be an excellent vodka. Very clean taste, mixes very well. I would put this vodka up there with any top tier vodkas. Chopin, Imperia, and Reyka are my favorites, but this is right up there and will be added to my favorites list.

The quality of any vodka depends on three crucial factors: - the raw materials. - the distillation process. - the water. In XELLENT, all three are something special. XELLENT is a pure, slightly sweet-tasting 40% vol. spirit, consisting of nothing
