REVIEW: Christmas shots

And so to the second review of our Vintage Roots Christmas Hamper Case.

The bottle of Utkins UK5 Organic Vodka might look small but it sure does pack a punch. Apparently this vodka won a commendation at the Soil Association Organic Food Awards 2004 and took the Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2004.

We squeezed out two christmas shots (vodka and freshly cooked cranberries) out of the bottle and our thoughts on the vodka are fairly limited but helpful nonetheless.

The vodka seemed quite mild but is equal in strength to normal vodka. The taste is, well, vodka, although was clearly the purest we had ever had. It went down nice and smooth and certainly did the job of jolting us out of our christmas slumbers. Was nice and cold as had been in the freezer then fridge. Mmmmmmm.

The producers of UK5 have this to say about their vodka: The purer a vodka, the better it is. That is why UK5 Organic Vodka uses only the worlds purest water and the world's finest organic grain which has a denser cell structure perfect for making premium vodka.

Conventional vodka is made from grain sprayed on average at least 7 times with chemicals; these chemicals which are found in our water supply and food chain, are feared to cause human cancers, interfere with our hormones and our human nervous system.

We could not agree more. Although booze is hardly saintly. Then again at least this is the cleanest booze you will ever drink.

Next up: the port and maybe the blonde beer. Hopefully. HURRAH! [Hic!]

And remember to stay tuned for our special City Hippy Christmas message later on.

Ho [Hic] Ho [Hic] Ho [Hic]!
