Notes

VeeV Acai Spirit is based upon that hottest of exotic, South American, "super fruits", the acai berry. With the anti-oxidant craze, they announce: "Drink better; live better." Nice to see spirits companies can get some claims for nutrition into the marketplace. They also promise to donate $1 from every bottle sold to the preservation of Amazonian rain forest. They further claim that their production efforts are completely carbon neutral.

The spirit itself is a wheat-based alcohol (think vodka) blended with "prickly pear" and acerola cherry among other "exotic fruits" to help the flavor. They suggest drinking neat or with soda and "splash of lime." At a slightly milder proof than typical rums or vodkas (60pf rather than a more customary 80pf), it should prove a nice, lighter liquor. It is produced by Distilled Resources in Idaho (according to the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau) presumably by private label agreement for VeeV Spirits Company.

They have a funny little commercial called The End of Vodka.

Classifying this is a bit troublesome. While not technically a vodka it is certainly not a liqueur since it isn't sweetened to any great degree. We feel it bears the closest resemblance to a flavored vodka and have placed it there.

It's tangy-sweet. Almost a soda pop like flavor. I'm not sure this would hold up mixed in anything. Decent taste! I would give it a 3.5 if it were possible, I'm torn between 3 and 4.

Interesting, not bad but not to my taste personally. Too fruity and sweet but some people may like it. Reminds me a good bit of Konyagi in a way, but more expensive!

This is pretty good but I'm still a big chopin vodka fan. I tried this liqueur on virgin airlines because the lady told me it was more like a vodka. It's smooth but a little too sweet for my taste with a stronger cherry flavor. I would drink this over the really sweet liqueurs like X Rated.
