Proof66 Notes

Xellent Swiss vodka describes itself as the "spirit of Switzerland." It is made from Swiss "bread quality" rye grain grown in the high-mountain regions and blended down with glacial water from the famous Alps that define the nation; they consider the water to rich in oxygen and minerals that help the flavor of the vodka. It is distilled in copper alambic stills to a purity of 96% alcohol, 1% more than the requisite 95% to be considered vodka.

Xellent Swiss Vodka is an excellent spirits choice if, in the words of a friend and fellow taste tester, “You have an open wound or a snake bite.” Perhaps that should say former friend. After all, friends don’t let friends drink defective vodka. And, unfortunately for us, I believe we received a defective bottle to review. A very stylish bottle, admittedly, but with defective contents. I am of the school that believes great vodka should not be neutral (many of you may disagree), but it is improbable that the distillers meant for their premium vodka to taste like rubbing alcohol. Unfortunately, we were not able to procure another bottle of Xellent Swiss Vodka for comparison purposes prior to publishing this review. Below is a summary of our tasting experience, but I encourage you to keep an open mind. If you have had a different experience with Xellent, we would love to hear about it.
