Product of: France
Cîroc was created by Jean-Sébastien Robicquet, a charismatic Frenchman who grew up between Cognac and Bordeaux. Given his origins, it is perhaps not surprising that Jean-Sébastien chose to make his new vodka exclusively from grape spirit, particularly Ugni Blanc, the cognac region's key variety.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/10/2014
Crystal clear, bright.
Clean, subtle lemon zest/lemon grass fragrance with delicate sage spice.
Zesty lemon and slight honey sweetness giving a perceived silky mouthfeel with cracked black pepper spice.
Lemon zest with cracked black pepper and faint grappa-like notes. (Those expecting a 'grape' flavoured vodka will be disappointed but Cîroc offers a fresh palate with subtle citrus overtones.)
