About Vodka from Belgium

About Vodka from Belgium
Gin - or more correctly, genever - is Belgium's most important spirit. There are two main styles - old and young - that are based, not on the length of aging, but rather on specific distillations techniques; the young is more neutral in character, while the old has more of a maltiness. Belgian gin often displays notes of yeast and pastry dough, with the older having an earthier, more honeyed finish, as opposed to the younger gin being cleaner in style. In Belgium, they are often served from an ice-cold bottle and sipped neat.

Cosmik Pure Diamond Vodka

Bright clear color. Mild, citrusy aromas of lemon candy and pastry with a silky, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, quick waxy honeycomb, lemon custard, and minerals finish. A zesty, refreshing vodka that will mix well.
