With so many brands focused on adding flavors to their collection we sometimes forget about “the original flavored spirit” but Southern Comfort is ready to reclaim its title. Keeping it fresh and innovative is key in the spirits industry and so Southern Comfort has stepped up to the plate after releasing SoCo Lime in 2010, SoCo Fiery Pepper in 2011 and now its latest offering, SoCo Cherry.
Just when you thought all the different brands had searched high and low for every fruit possible to flavor or infuse with vodka, the mad scientists behind these vodka companies have moved onto a newest trend: “shock vodka”. I like to call it shock vodka because it’s really about making you wonder: what can’t they capture in a bottle?
Three Olives latest flavor should taste VERY familiar to most of us. If the name didn’t give it away, the bright and colorful “O’s” on the label should do the trick. It’s Froot Loop flavored vodka and although it sounds crazy, so did just about every other flavor of vodka that has become a staple behind the bar (think whipped cream, marshmallow, sweet tea). Three Olives themselves describe Loopy as “A dastardly delicious medley of tropical fruit and imported English vodka”. Dastardly delicious might just be the understatement of the year. From the tropical red berries to the strong scent of citrus, this one hits all the right notes to create a tasty vodka and completely emulate the taste/aroma of a fresh bowl of Froot Loops in the morning. Don’t worry, we wont think less of you if you break out the milk with this one but if your pour it in a bowl and try drinking it with a spoon, consider yourself judged.
If I asked what the bestselling Irish whiskey in the world was, I’m sure most of us would correctly guess Jameson. But, could you guess the second bestselling and fastest-growing whiskey brand in the U.S. market? That’s right, it’s Tullamore and it’s for good reason.Founded in 1829, Tullamore Dew derives its name from the initials of its creator, Daniel E. Williams. Aged in bourbon and sherry casks, it’s got the three levels of easy: easy on the eyes, easy to drink and easy on the wallet. What more can you ask for?
