According to Serge Imports LLC president Serge Chistov, “This is the first vodka of its kind, which uses 5-18 year old brandies to create an authentic XO flavor. Our goal in creating this product was to give our brown spirit drinkers an affordable taste alternative.”
Chistov said he got the idea for brandy flavoured vodka while he was visiting his friend’s cognac factory in Kvint, Moldova, a place regarded for it’s excellent production of brandies.
“I like to innovate and bring interesting new products to the market by bridging tradition and innovation,” explains Chistov.
He further added, “This product tastes wonderful, but still delivers value at its price point.”
The vodka is not brandy but its taste is some how similar to some of the finest brandies with a little deep, woody nose, smooth texture with a warm finish. It is 70pc proof, 35pc alcohol by volume. With an inclusion of a caramelized sugar the consistency of a true brandy is obtained from this traditional French method.
