Proof66 Notes


Bear Hug Chocolate vodka infuses flavors of "rich chocolate" and vanilla.

Bear Hug infusions are specialty products that a high quality US grain vodka blended for ultimate purity and neutral taste and then infused with all-natural flavors. In many cases, the actual flavoring agent is still in the bottle, continuing to flavor the spirit as it sits in the bottle. Note the label stating "bottled at 21%" [our emphasis] since the continuing infusion can adjust the final proof when poured. They are intentionally lower proof spirits relative to other vodka products.

Innovative Liquors is the company behind what used to be 267 Liquors and now Bear Hug Infusions. Their inspiration for their infused spirits is said to be their travels to exotic locations. The bottle designs are inspired by rain drops. The Falic Group acquired 267 Infusions from Boz Spirits in 2008.

Its easy to go wrong with a candy flavored infusion of a liquor. It can taste too "manufactured." Bear Hug does it right, however. This vodka has the rich flavor of dark chocolate without being too sweet or syrupy. Great for chocolate martinis, on the rocks, or even with a little ice cream.

I think if I loved chocolate, I would love this more. It smells like a pure, clean chunk of European chocolate. The taste is pure, classic chocolate as well... the follow through is bitter. Its a little bit like sneaking semi-sweet or unsweetened chocolate from your moms cupboard when you e a kid: all the chocolate but a bit of an uncertainty on the follow-through. I think people who are really into chocolate would probably love this drink.
