Exclusiv Vodka launched in 2001, but has only emerged in the US in the past few years. The small vodka company based out of Moldova, a small country that neighbors the creator, Serge Chistov's, Ukranian home. The vodka is produced using only the best winter wheat, resulting in a natural sweetness and uses naturally filtrated water from Central Europe. Now that we've got a taste of this vodka, we want to share with you why it's so good!
It's Cheap. Let's face it, the economy is still struggling and with it, our bank accounts. So at a jaw-dropping price of $9.99 a bottle (no, we aren't joking), it's hard not to swipe up a bottle or five. Talk about bang for your buck!
It comes in flavors. Apart from the original unflavored 80-proof bottle, Exclusiv comes in additional and inventive flavors. The company offers bottles of berry, orange, coconut, lemon or even peach, but the real standout is their new Rosé flavor which is a raspberry flavored vodka infused with Moscato wine. How can you top that?
It tastes good. Don't let the price tag fool you - this vodka holds its own against the most top shelf vodkas around. Since coming to the US, Exclusiv has won numerous awards to verify just how smooth it is - including the 'Double Gold' in 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the 2011 Best Value Vodka $10 and Under, and was awards a 91 point raiting of 'exceptional' by The Beverage Tasting Institute this year.
It's good-looking. Yes, we're vain. If we are drinking inexpensive vodka, we don't everyone to know. Luckily, that's not a problem because Exclusiv comes in a chic frosted glass bottle with a sophisticated logo, making sure your friends know it ain't no Popov.
