Proof66 Notes

Proud of their geographical heritage, the name 42 Below is a reference to where New Zealand falls geographically: on the 42nd parallel in the southern hemisphere. For their line of vodkas, they distill from a base of wheat (usually indicating a soft, smooth flavor profile) and rely on local, natural spring water where they say, "it's all Uncle Nature's handiwork."

Drink Hacker awarded this vodka an A- saying, "It's definitely worth a spot in the old liquor cabinet for cocktails or sippin' as shots."

3.5 stars Surprisingly sweeter than other wheat-based vodkas. Recommended neat or on the rocks but be careful not to water it down too much

I had this on the rocks with a twist of lemon. I thought it was very good.

vodka is my least favorite alcohol so giving it 3 stars for me is pretty good... I had this neat and it was reasonably smooth with a simple mellow vodka taste. If you can find it for below 20 & you usually do smirnoff I think this is an upgrade
