The Alaska Distillery in Wasilla just recently launched its Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka, about a year after the Seattle-based Black Rock Spirits introduced a bacon-flavored vodka.
Both savory spirits were intended to complement Bloody Marys, but are finding wider uses among mixologists.
I dunno about the Smoked Salmon, I bet it tastes very distinctive, but I have made myself (and have supplies to make more) bacon vodka, and I think its an amazing drink.
Of course the Martini is the king of the savory beverages, and my personal favorite for bacon vodka. I’m betting bloody Maries would also work VERY well with either of these spirits.
Also I plan on making some black-pepper vodka soon. That’s a VERY enjoyable spirit, as the alcohol seems to dissolve the pepper flavor differently than our aquaeus mouths do, giving a peppery, but different-than-pepper flavor.
Very neat. Look forward to vodka infusion posts here.
