So we just got in these cute lil’ guys: Western Son Vodka flavors, in 50ml bottles. At 99 cents a pop, you can try all six of the flavors we carry (peach, lime, cucumber, prickly pear, watermelon, and grapefruit) without spending a ton of money. AND we also have them available in 10 packs (single flavor only, sorry) for $8.99, so you save about a dollar that way. Good deal!
Western Son distills their vodka in Texas, and they *might* be knocking on the doors of Tito’s fans (they also boast that they are a small batch, hand-crafted, gluten-free corn vodka, distilled 10 times…oh, and they, too, give back through their own charity). However one big difference: Western Son has the FLAVAHS.
NOW ON TO MY RANT. I feel like these days there are as many flavored vodkas as there are shows on the History Channel that have nothing to do with history (and I blame you, Pawn Stars).
I checked, and there are easily a gillion different vodka flavors. Everything from Bacon to Sriracha to Chocolate Whipped Cream. I mean, I’m sure that gym-sock flavored vodka is going to go GREAT in your post-workout Bloody Mary, but I don’t see a ton of uses for some of these crazy flavors.
Western Son Vodka comes in flavors that are different, but not super-specific and weird (I bet you were wondering where I was going with the gym-sock thing). Lime and Prickly Pear could go in any number of fun fruity cocktails. With summer just around the corner, Fun Fruity Cocktails are definitely on my list of things to do. So while I’m pretty sure flavored vodkas in general are poised to go the way of the Cupcake, I’m hoping these will stick around to grace my concoctions for years to come.
