Proof66 Notes

Absolut is famous for flavored vodkas and great marketing. Absolut Brooklyn is the 2010 limited edition expression from the Absolut Cities campaign to celebrate specific attributes of various cities. This vodka--said to be a collaboration with native Spike Lee--is made with an "invigorating blend of red apples" and ginger. As with all of these expressions, part of the proceeds go to the city's local charity with Absolut Brookly creating proceeds for Habitat for Humanity.

Because of the great success of the flavor, it was re-released as Orient Apple as part of their product portfolio. 

About the Producer:

Absolut claims "all natural ingredients" with "no added sugar." It officially began production in 1979 and, to this day, they take great pride in their production facilities in Ahus, Sweden where "every drop of water" comes from a single "deep well." The vodka uses a soft winter wheat for its base.The brand is owned by French-based Pernod-Ricard.

Absolut vodka is one of the top-selling brands of vodka in the world and is one of the great visionaries in the marketing of vodka. Their aggressive and occasionally scandalous ads in the nineties helped launch the cocktail culture.

The aroma is better than the flavor, but what flavor there is is unique. Tastes more like an Asian pear to me than an apple. Hard to figure out what to use it with other than just apple and ginger products. Could probably do some kind of upscale Appletini. Definitely better than most apple flavored booze... I'm looking at you, Crown Royal Apple.

Smooth...would give a 4.5 acutally. Ginger is a nice ending to a smooth a drink.

I am thoroughly amazed at the pure, crisp red apple flavor that comes through so cleanly in this limited edition vodka. The ginger adds a little spice to it and the two combined make for a perfect drink. If it's hot outside, try it simply on ice or add a touch of apple juice. If it's cold outside, warm it up with some apple cider and pop in a cinnamon stick. Fabulous!

Not my favorite of Absolut's "cities" line, but still good. This was a wierd one as I associate Brooklyn with the smell of asphalt and refuse as opposed to apples. The ginger makes a nice addition to the apple and makes it distinct from other apple infused vodkas, like say Smirnoff. Unlike Smirnoff's apple vodka, Absolut Brooklyn offers a much lighter, less syrupy apple flavor.

This stuff has an amazing, apple-cider aroma. It truly is as if you're at a Christmas party smelling the cider simmering over the stove. The vodka itself is nice and the ginger is not at all overly spicy. Chilling it down on ice really smooths it out.

I really like it--it's great to have in a bar, especially as a novelty item--but I'm a bit at a loss about what sort of drink I'd make with it. Will need to experiment!
