Vodkas are supposed to have a neutral flavor, making it difficult for a new brand to stand out from the rest, especially in such a highly competitive market. Fellini vodka tries to set itself apart by touting itself as an â€œorganic experience of old european traditions.â€and has earned a designation as 100-percent certified organic, and is truly eco-friendly with no additives, pesticides or preservatives. It further separates itself from its peers by being made from imported winter wheat. This is a clear departure from the usual potato or corn base that makes up most vodkas we find on the shelf.
Fellini boasts a specialized filtration process that is five-times distilled and three-times filtered through organic carbons â€” which the makers claim eliminates the harmful and flavor-altering solvents that cause headaches and hangovers. In addition, only 40 percent of actual product yielded from filtration is bottled, further enhancing the vodkaâ€™s flavor and refinement.
You will pleased with the aesthetic of the smoked glass bottle, but the true enjoyment will come from the 80-proof liquid inside. The initial taste has a sweet nose and features a slight burn, but it leads to a smooth finish. The product shines best on the rocks, paired with a light mixer, or in a dry martini.
