Review: Vesica Vodka

Review: Vesica Vodka

Math time.

.75 liters + 1 liter = what?

1.75 liters, that’s right.

And here’s the gimmick with Vesica Vodka: Take the .75 liter bottle and the 1 liter bottle of the vodka and put them together and you get the 1.75 liter bottle — not just in volume, but in bottle shape, too. How do I know this? I’m sitting in front of 3.5 liters of the stuff that Vesica sent me and am doing the geometry/math/whatever for myself. The crescent .75 liter plus the round 1 liter = the goggle-shaped 1.75 (see the photo below to get a sense of it). It’s insane, people.

Vesica’s odd bottle shapes aside, this Polish spirit is triple distilled from potatoes and bottled at 80 proof — no matter what shape you’re talking about.

It’s not bad at all. Clean and simple, Vesica offers traditional aromas and body, quite medicinal in the mid-palate but overall pleasing and easy. The finish has bite, but also some sweetness. The balance is about right, provided you like a big, hearty spirit. Ten bucks gets you in the door with the little bottle.

80 proof.

    We just received this as well. And it doubled our bar’s vodka volume. Mixes well, not a sipper. A little stingy (not due to proof) when tried at room temperature but no off flavors or aftertaste.

    I agree. An outstanding vodka especially considering the price point. More than happy to add it to my home bar.
