I wanted to create a cocktail that Vincent Van Gogh would enjoy himself. My inspiration for this drink was Van Gogh’s “The Night Cafe” and his apparent love for Absinthe. I found that the sweet, burnt sugar taste with notes of vanilla and chocolate found in Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka blended best with the bitterness in wormwood and undertones of star anise, which is found in Absinthe. The richness and bold flavor of Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka makes this cocktail best to enjoy as an aperitif or digestif.
Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh is famous for his use of bold colors and for pioneering the post-impressionist movement. Van Gogh Vodka celebrates its namesake with beautiful, artist-inspired packaging and innovative flavors with vibrant, true-to-life tastes.
The highly acclaimed collection includes two smooth, unflavored vodkas, Van Gogh Classic and Van Gogh BLUE Triple Wheat – as well as twenty-two bold flavors that can stand on their own or enhance a cocktail with their remarkably real tastes and aromas.
