4 Orange Vodka: Orange-flavored vodka, right?
Not exactly: This is vodka made out of oranges. Nothing but Florida oranges (four varieties of ’em, hence the name). And flavored with oranges: 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 orange 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.
