About Nemiroff Honey Pepper Vodka
You might be bewitched or even stupefied by the idea of honey and/or pepper vodka. In Ukraine, the concept has been known for over a century, and in 1997, the Nemiroff Ukrainian Vodka Company decided to combine the two flavors. The recipe finds inspiration in Slavic traditions and the concoction is surprisingly spectacular. The premium and out-of-the-box spirit offers flavors of wild herbs, honey, and red chili peppers. Nemiroff Honey Pepper Vodka is bottled at 40% ABV, and the first thing you'll notice is the beautiful amber hue. Look closer, and you'll see small chili peppers inside, like red maguey worms in mezcal. If you enjoy it neat, you'll experience wonderful heat rising with each sip, pampering your palate with a creamy texture and hot spicy flavors. Now imagine putting this wild thing into Bloody Caesar!
Nemiroff Ukrainian Vodka Company is the No.1 exporter of vodka in Ukraine and one of the world's largest producers of alcohol, sold in more than eighty countries. The company's name has roots in "Nemyriv vodka," first mentioned in the mid-1700s. In 1872, Count Stroganov opened a distillery in Nemyriv, which the Soviets nationalized in 1920, and after the Union fell, vodka production resumed, and the Nemiroff trademark was registered. By 2006, Nemiroff became the No.2 vodka brand in the world.
Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
