How It's Made
Dented Brick® Pomegranate Lemonade Vodka is an exciting fusion of our own Craft Vodka with all-natural fruit flavors to create something extraordinary. Tart and tangy, with citrus and berry notes, this mashup of sweet and sour can add a whole new layer of depth to sweet or savory cocktails. This flavored vodka is made from a unique combination of grain neutral spirit and natural fruit flavors brought to proof with the most important ingredient — artesian, limestone-filtered water. This water is sourced directly from the majestic mountains of Utah, home of the greatest snow on earth! The snowmelt then flows into the distillery's own Artesian Well creating the unique flavor profile crafted from this mineral rich water.
This handcrafted flavored vodka has rich, tangy notes of fresh lemon and pomegranate juice, with a hint of cranberry. The sour notes subside on the back end, leaving you with a sweet, lasting finish.
The first thing to look for when tasting a new spirit is what it looks like. Take note of its color, is it clear or cloudy, light, golden or dark – this can help prepare your brain for what is about to come next.
Commonly referred to as “nosing” this is where you sniff the spirit to soak in those delicious aromas. Short quick sniffs are best to capture different aromas. You have about 7 seconds before your nose gives up and stops noticing things so try and identify things quickly.
The first sip is always a bit of a shock to the tongue, so take a small sip to get the light burn out of the way so you can then focus on the flavors.
Take a second, slower sip and let the spirit float around your mouth and the vapors float into your nose to identify more aromas. Here you want to look for sweetness, bitterness and spiciness & acidity. Make a note of what you observe.
Next, take another sip and pay attention to the consistency or the rum, is it smooth, light, thick? Does the flavor intensify or stay the same? Compare this to what you noticed in The View above.
Swallow the spirit and pay attention to the after taste. How quickly does it fade away? Do more flavors present themselves, do other flavors disappear.
