Heavy Water Vodka

Top 10 Vodkas

Heavy Water Vodka is made from Scandinavian winter wheat

Origin: Sweden; $30

There is no need for alarm; contrary to its name, this vodka is not radioactive, but could leave you feeling all charged up over discovering a new favorite. The distiller chose winter wheat as the base grain. In the colder regions of the earth, such as Sweden, winter wheat acts as a conduit between the pristine water of the area and the flavors of the land. The palate expresses these characteristics with minor hints of earthiness along with a faint touch of almonds, vanilla cream soda and citrus.
