Time for some organic vodka from Hawaii! Today we look at ocean vodka, a product which arrives in a round bottle. Sexy, very unique in design and, within the bubble, the neutral grain spirit known as Ocean.
Of course, not all vodka’s are created equal…but they are still vodka. Ocean comes off with a light slightly sweet neutral spirit made from cane sugar. One of my favorite parts of the Ocean design is that it does not boast all its distillation methods and “times distilled.”
This is a clean spirit, very smooth and easy to drink without any real burn effect in the finish. Here in New Hampshire a bottle of Ocean Vodka will run $31.99 and we found it online for about $35.99–not a cheap product when it comes to vodka.
Knowing you can get a fine vodka for mid-$20 range, one has to make a stretch to convince themselves that $32+ dollars for a product that does have a bit more smooth clean taste is worth the money. A big vodka drinking fan will no doubt fall in love with the taste profile, but those that just make mixers with their vodka will find this a waste of cash.
Of course, the bottle design is also a great keeper when you’re finished, but that hardly is a good sales technique if everyone only buys one bottle for the decoration. The substance within this bottle is well crafted, like all the spirits we’ve had from Hawaii. Now, it comes down to asking yourself if it’s worth your taste buds.
I think we’ll see Ocean Vodka go far in the industry as it’s highly recognizable, has a product worth a taste and should work great in vodka martini’s.
