There are a lot of vodkas on the market. And there are a lot of really good vodkas on the market. And I am gonna tell you about one of them — one I sort of forgot about for a while, but was reminded on a recent trip to Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. I picked up a bottle of Cîroc vodka, and it was as good as I remembered, as well as unique among the vodka big boys.

So what makes Cîroc different? First, it comes from France, which is more known for its wines. And in there lies the story. While most vodkas are made from grain or potatoes, Cîroc — maybe due to its country of origin — is made from grapes. Makes sense, doesn’t it?

And the dude responsible for making Cîroc from grapes, knows what he is doing. His family has been distillers since the 15th century. Jean-Sebastien Robicquet, who has a degree in Oenology (winemaking) combined with his heritage, first created Cîroc in 2003 and has seen it become one of the best in the industry.

Cîroc starts out as wine, made from fine French grapes. Then it is distilled four times in column stills. But then it goes through a fifth distillation in traditional copper pot stills. This last process imparts Cîroc’s unique and fresh flavor.

Cîroc also offers eight flavored versions and an ultra-premium 10-year anniversary selection.

I have gone through half my bottle already in classic, slightly dirty martinis. Once I submit this article to press, I will go work on the other half.
