Christiania Vodka is a cool, smooth vodka produced in Norway that first made its way onto the U.S. market in 2006. The original recipe for this premium vodka dates back to the 1500's and the court of King Christian IV.

It includes the country's organic Trondelag potatoes with pure arctic spring water. The ingredients are distilled six times in a column still, filtered through charcoal, then aerated at the Arcus Distillery.

The result is a spectacularly clean spirit worthy of a well-chilled, straight sipper or any of your favorite, equally elegant vodka cocktails.

Tasting Notes:

Christiania Vodka is a rich, elegant vodka experience which begins with a clean, yet complex, bouquet of aromas. It is silky and smooth as it reaches the tongue and there it releases a warm citrus and fresh, green undertone. Christiania finishes off nicely with notes of burnt orange and coriander that lasts for a while, but not long enough to be detrimental to the experience.

Enjoy Christiania Vodka

Christiania truly deserves to be mixed in the best and cleanest cocktails with the freshest ingredients. Those like the Vodka Martini, April Rain, Lemon Drop, and Mad Eye Martini do this vodka justice.

Also, this is a perfect vodka for the more culinary cocktails like the original recipes from Christiania below. Notice that both use lingonberry, a wild berry that is made into a traditional Scandinavian jam.
