SKYY VODKA INFUSIONS
1992 was a good year. Linford Christie won 100m Gold in Barcelona, Right Said Fred went to number 1, and Skyy Vodka was born. Unashamedly proud of its roots in San Francisco, Skyy is one of most recognisable alcohol trademarks in the world and the tall, cobalt bottle stands out proudly like a Skyscraper on any shelf.
With popular brands, it’s quite easy to overlook them in favour of new and unusual spirits, but I recently got reacquainted with Skyy and to use borrow a cliché from another famous brand I had ‘forgotten how good it tasted’.
Skyy is exceptionally clean, with no distinctive odour, and this often makes it the New York bartender’s choice for cocktail making. The people at Skyy have recognised that not everyone can afford trendy bar prices to enjoy great cocktails, so they have created a Skyy Infusions range so you can create similar drinks at home. Flavoured Vodkas are widely available nowadays, but Skyy have come up with unique fruit infusions including Dragon Fruit, Ginger, Cherry, and Passion Fruit. If that doesn’t stir your senses, then surely the controversial sexy advertising campaign will.
Skyy Vodka Infusions, 37.5% ABV, RRP £21.99. Visit www.skyy.com for more information.
