You may have seen Three Olives Vodka in Cosmopolitan, People, Lucky, Glamour, Elle or InStyle magazines or at your local liquor store. Three Olives Vodka is one of the leading English Vodkas on the market. It is made using a three hundred year old recipe and Three Olives Vodka is quadruple distilled and quadruple filtered with charcoal filtering. Three Olives Vodka also comes in 13 different flavors. This review is of the Three Olives Citrus Vodka.
Three Olives Citrus Vodka is said to be “Ultra Premium. Ultra Citrus,” by its makers and that may be a valid statement. The vodka does taste like a premium vodka, not like one of the ones on the bottom shelves at your liquor stores and the citrus flavor is done very well; not too much, not too little.
The citrus flavor in the Three Olives Citrus Vodka is not overwhelming. The combination of the lemons and the limes makes a nice little citrus flavor that accentuates the taste of the vodka and it does not detract from it.
Three Olives CitrusVodka is rather smooth but it is not a vodka that you would want to drink straight without something to take away from the sharpness of the taste of it.
Three Olives Citrus Vodka is definitely a nice sipping vodka. The citrus flavor takes away from the harshness of the taste of the vodka. This is certainly a great vodka to add ice and a lemon or a lime wedge to and sit and sip. The ice will take a little of the harshness away from the vodka.
Three Olives Vodka markets itself as the perfect martini vodka. Three Olives Citrus Vodka definitely makes a great citrus martini. The subtle but satisfying citrus taste really adds a little something to a regular vodka martini and makes for a nice change in pace.
I found Three Olives Citrus Vodka at my local liquor store for $19.95 for 750 ml, but the price may vary depending on the store that you go to. This price is on par with the mid-range priced vodkas like Skyy. Also, until the end of the year Three Olives Vodka is offering a $9.95 mail-in rebate on some of its vodka flavors, so now might be the time that you should try it, if you are so inclined.
Three Olives Vodka’s presentation does not leave much to be desired. The slim, elegant bottle attracts anyone’s eye as they walk down the aisle and you will not be ashamed to show off this vodka in your collection.
I fully recommend giving this vodka a try if you are a fan of citrus flavors. With its decent price and premium flavor, Three Olives Citrus Vodka would be a great addition to any vodka drinkers rotation. Three Olives Citrus Vodka is a premium tasting vodka at a mid-ranged price.
