Top 5 Vodkas
By Josh Quinn, VP of Events
Recently, Heather and I stopped by Nic’s in Beverly Hills for dinner. Featuring VODBOX — which Nic’s calls the ultimate ‘walk-in, drink-in’ exhibitionist freezer, designed solely for the enjoyment of vodka in its purest form. It’s a glass room where the temperature is kept at exactly 23 degrees — the perfect chill for Vodka.
We donned faux fur hats and coats and went in to sample the goods, led by the Vodka Sommelier or the “VodBod”. Here’s our It List for the Top 5 vodkas from that tasting:
1 Titos — Handmade vodka from Texas with a surprisingly smooth finish. Ideal for Martinis.
2 Zubrówka Bison Grass — Earthy but fresh taste of a spring meadow. Just the thing for pre-dinner sipping.
3 Jewel of Russia Classic — Wow, this is one big vodka! Best with a splash of soda and a lime.
4 Stolichnaya “Elit” — Your favorite cocktail’s new star.
5 Effen Black Cherry — Fuel for dancing the night away.
