The other day, I wrote about having tasted Pearl Vodka. In one of the comments to the Post, Hilsy, apparently one of Cousin Jack’s students, suggested that I check out Iceberg Vodka. It is made from 12,000-year old icebergs that are harvested in Canada and turned into Vodka. After reading the website, it became one of those â€œGotta Tryâ€™s.â€
I bought a bottle today and brought it to the American Legion Post so that the Usual Suspects and I (all no strangers to Vodka) could give it a try. We decided to follow the recommendation on the website and drink â€œIce Breakers,â€ which consists of â€œA bite of lemon, a lick of sugar, and a shooter of Iceberg Vodka, straight up directly from the freezer.â€
The verdict was unanimous. Excellent!! Of course, we all had another.
The bottle is shaped like a chunk of ice with one flat side, so that it fits nicely even in a crowded freezer. Surprisingly, it is not all that expensive either. I think I paid about $17.00 for the bottle, which is comparable to other vodkas.
I intend to pick up another bottle or two so that next week we can put it to the real test – Martinis.
The Usual Suspects and I thank Hilsy for the tip. He gets an A+ from us. I suspect he will do equally as well in his Tax Class.
