Loon Vodka

imageLCBO#: 374728
Price: $45.25
Made in: Hearst, ON, Canada
By: Rheault Distillery
40% ABV.

This vodka from Northern Ontario is distilled four times in a single batch steel copper pot. It is a grainy vodka that gives out leafy aromas with lots of herbal notes. The flavours are also reminiscent of grass and plants with a little of the grain shining in the finish. Some mild sweetness is felt as well to balance things. This vodka is pretty smooth overall to sip, but with some character to stand out. Quite a good vodka that contains 0% methanol. Congrats on the Double Gold medal for the China Wine & Spirits Awards. Here’s to long life !!

Vice Vodka Icewine Martini

LCBO#: 158212
Price: $34.95
Made in: Vineland, Ontario
By: Vineland Estates Winery

After visiting the Niagara region, we had tried getting these vodka Icewine martinis, but had no success. We therefor found this pre made version at the LCBO. This desertini is a great Canadian alcoholic delight. Pours a nice clean light golden colour. Aromas of sweet white grapes. It feels like this will be as sweet and syrupy as icewine alone. Nope. Very well-blended to retain the icewine taste, but not too thick to make this easy to drink. The vodka is not present at first, but it does show up after a while. Being five times distilled, it is quite smooth. A very nice desert martini which I would serve to anyone to show a nice side of Canada.
