Van Gogh PB&J

Top Flavored Vodkas

Van Gogh PB&J Vodka bottles a classic American comfort food

Van Gogh PB&J
The Netherlands

Van Gogh Vodka from Holland has successfully transformed an iconic American comfort food into a distinctive alcoholic beverage. The focus on the nose is on the flavor of peanut butter and trail mix, with a hint of berry; while on the palate you get jelly with a touch of peanut butter and almonds. Master Distiller Tim Voss chose raspberry as the jelly flavor and aroma, while the peanut butter tastes homemade with a touch of vanilla extract rounding out a toasty treasure. At a leisurely 70 proof, this little masterpiece is easy drinking. With more than twenty different flavored vodkas to their credit, Van Gogh Vodka has been made at the Royal Dirkzwager Distillery since 1879.

Price: $28
