Product of: Italy
Italian fashion designer, Roberto Cavalli, has put his name to this vodka in addition to his lines of clothing, sunglasses, shoes and handbags. Cavalli is known for using wild animal prints in his designs and this vodka sees a serpent wrapped around a frosted bottle.
To quote Cavalli: "The art of hospitality has always been one of my greatest passions, that's why creating this vodka felt very natural and spontaneous to me – it's limpid, pure and brilliant as my perfect woman."
This vodka is not run up in some sweatshop but crafted by Distillerie Francoli in Ghemme, Italy. It is made from Italian-grown grain, hydrated with water from the peaks of Monte Rosa and filtered through crushed Carrara marble.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/06/2012
Fairly neutral with hints of nuts and dried fruit.
Creamy palate starts soft and slightly sweet with fennel and anise but quickly builds with peppery spice turning dry with nutty, raisin notes.
The finish is dry and peppery with lingering star anise.
