Hangar One Raspberry Vodka
Returns to the Shelves This Week
When I first sampled locally distilled Hangar One Raspberry Vodka about a year and a half ago it was a resounding adoration at first sip. Made from Fraser River Meeker raspberries, this extraordinary spirit earnt my deep and faithful love from the moment of that initial taste onwards. It's a playfully girly-pink looking spirit, an appearance that does not bely its strength, its purity or its distinct lack of sweetness. It smells of nothing less than the most fragrant basket of raspberries and it fills your mouth with the same fruity intensity.
It has been said that you can have too much of a good thing, but with Hangar One Raspberry Vodka's status as a limited edition from a single distillation that happens only once a year, you'll be lucky to find any left for sale by the time that Christmas comes around. Its scarcity makes it even more desirable. I stockpile a few bottles every year and am reluctant to drink the very last glass for fear that I might never be able to sup on its unique likeness again.
