Vodka Tasting Experience Gift Set Highlights

Vodka is a spirit containing ethyl alcohol distilled from potatoes, grain, or other agricultural raw ingredients or combinations thereof. In Canada, vodka may only be produced from grain or potatoes and must use charcoal treatment. 

Each vodka is unique, however at the same time you can cluster them into groups with similar interests and characters called flavour camps. The six core vodka flavour camps are: Clean, Fruity/Fresh, Sweet, Bready/Grainy, Creamy/Buttery, and Rich. Additional flavours and aromas present with these core flavour camps are: Crisp, Citric, Floral, Silky, Herbal And Medicinal. 

This vodka tasting has been organized with a curated selection of vodkas that appear in the different vodka flavour camps. Grouping the vodkas like this helps you to identify the major types of vodka you prefer, which helps you to zero in on new vodkas to try that belong to similar cohorts. 

If you are looking for the best vodka tasting experience or wondering how to gift a vodka sample set, look no further!

The highlights of our vodka sampler tasting experience  include:

  • A curated tour of the best tasting vodkas we love from around the world. 
  • A vodka tasting booklet guide for your experience including an overview of each vodka, how to taste, and tasting notes. 
  • Optional live expert led private vodka tasting event  available both in-person and virtually (Contact Us For Live Tasting Event Quote)
  • Food pairing options to compliment vodka samples. 
  • Great for occasions such as a birthday gift for vodka lovers or a gift for the holidays!

  • Optional note card to deliver a special message to the recipient.
  • Delivery available across Ontario and next day delivery to select locations in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

GREEN & BLACK’s Organic Dark Chocolate For Vodka Sampler Gift Set

Dark chocolate and vodka make a great match. The warming, complex nature of most vodka complements the luxurious, creamy texture of good chocolate. 

The underlying sweetness and alcohol bite to vodka is offset extremely well by the more bitter and lingering flavor of dark chocolate.

Our organic Dark 70% chocolate from GREEN & BLACK’s is made from fine Trinitario cacao beans, providing complex fruit notes and intense bittersweet chocolate aromas.

GREEN & BLACK’S is a chocolate brand founded on sustainable and ethical cocoa sourcing principles.

A great addition to a vodka birthday gift for those looking to buy vodka samples online.

How To Enjoy

While you still have the flavours in your mouth after a sip of vodka, take a piece of chocolate and let it slowly melt and add to the flavour. Then take another sip of vodka and round it off.
