4 Orange Vodka: Orange-flavored vodka, right?
Wrong: Vodka made out of oranges. Nothing but Florida oranges (four varieties of ‘em, hence the name).
Technically I’m unsure you can actually call 4 Orange a vodka, legally speaking, I mean. By law, I’ve read that vodka is supposed to be flavorless, but 4 Orange is decidedly flavor-full. As you might expect, it’s quite orangey, jammy/marmalade-like in character and with only a little bit of bitter orange peel bite in the finish.
Very clean and refreshing, it’s not cloying at all, and the taste is very natural. Maybe 4 Oranges is on to something here, distilling the vodka out of the product you want it to taste like, rather than mixing in a bunch of flavoring agents after the fact.
