Korea has a reputation for expensive booze (save soju). In my pursuit of delicious distilled spirits, I opted to recently purchase Costco’s American Vodka. I wasn’t sure what to expect, since I’m not that much of a vodka drinker, but knowing how I enjoy the bourbon, I was willing to give this a shot.
Yangjae Costco serves up both of Costco’s vodkas. The European Vodka (distilled five times) is made in France, but the American Vodka (distilled six times) is made in California. Internet research leads me to believe (if the sleuths are correct), that this particular bottle was distilled by the former owners of Grey Goose.
The vodka is incredibly smooth with a hint of citrus (at least that’s what I thought). I really enjoyed it and at less than W16,000 for 1.75 liters, it is a bargain. If you enjoy vodka, straight or mixed, this is not a bad entry.
Do you like vodka? If so how: straight or mixed?
