Van Gogh Vodka is renowned for translating food flavors into creative vodkas, such as Dutch chocolate, Black cherry, Banana, Coconut and Double Espresso. They have recently introduced their take on the iconic American flavor combination of peanut butter & jelly.
The fragrance of the PB&J Vodka is predominately of peanuts, complimented by the fresh fruit aroma of raspberry. On the tongue, the raspberry flavor is more of the focal point, giving the drink a velvety texture with a hint of vanilla. Van Gogh Vodka’s master distiller Tim Vos chose raspberry flavored jelly after taste-testing peanut butter sandwiches with different jellies. He said:
For me, the raspberry jelly came out the best. It is fresh, fruity and mingles very well with the oily structure of the peanut butter… It is challenging to transform a famous food flavor into a drink flavor, however I think this transition is beautiful and the flavor is intriguing—I am certain that everyone will want to enjoy more than one glass!
