SKYY Infusions Wild Strawberry

SKYY Infusions Wild


By Robert Plotkin

It's not unusual for a food or beverage to be given a strawberry flavor. Its enormous popularity makes it a natural choice. What's unusual is for such products to actually taste anything like real strawberries. Far too frequently they have an artificial flavor that elicits nothing but yawns, sighs or winces from consumers and mixologists alike. It's a pity because as we all know the flavor of real strawberries are universally appealing. Bucking this trend is SKYY Infusions Wild Strawberry, the first flavored vodka imbued with the fresh and vibrant flavor of wild strawberries. Fact is you're going to love it.

This luscious top-shelf spirit is created using a proprietary process that infuses all-natural wild strawberry flavors into smooth, premium vodka. Through this process, the vodka is saturated with the succulent aroma and flavor of the fruit. The infusion is then bottled at 70-proof so there's no biting edge or alcohol burn. The relatively low proof allows the vodka's flavor to luxuriate on the palate for an agreeably long time.

SKYY Infusions Wild Strawberry is a gustatory tour de force. The crystal clear spirit has a lightweight, satiny textured body and a generous bouquet redolent of dark chocolate and freshly picked strawberries. Its soft, gentle entry quickly expands filling the mouth with the naturally sweet, slightly tart, true-to-fruit flavor. It's a thoroughly satisfying experience from start to finish.

SKYY Infusions Wild Strawberry joins the brand's existing line of premium flavors, which includes Moscato Grape, Coconut, Dragon Fruit, Blood Orange, Pineapple, Ginger, Cherry, Grape, Citrus, Raspberry and Passion Fruit.
