Ciroc Peach vodka is distilled from grapes using fruit from both the Mauzac Blanc and Ugni Blanc wine grapes. It was one of the first grape-based vodkas on the market causing no small amount of controversy in the spirits world. The vodka is distilled to minimum specifications of alcohol levels to maximize the grape aromatics and flavors, and infused with a peach flavor.
At first smell, one will sense the smell of grape skins, a hint of mint and a sweet grassy smell that is unlike normal vodka but very inviting. The palate continues along the lines of the nose and has sweet grape notes, again a full body and comes off pleasantly earthy. You definitely get a sense of the terroir in the taste. The finish is smooth and again earthy and medium in length leaving a wonderfully balanced mouth feel.
