Flavoured vodkas and spirits are dominated by a flavour other than their main ingredient. The main ingredient can be barley, wheat, rye or potatoes.
Flavoured vodkas and spirits can be sweetened, flavoured, aged or tinted. Examples of the predominant flavour are lime, grapefruit, lingonberry, cranberry, honey, vanilla, liquorice and other herbs and spices.
Flavoured vodkas and spirits are served as shots and in mixed drinks.
Serve flavoured vodkas and spirits as shots at a crayfish party, at the Christmas table or with herring and Baltic herring dishes seasoned with vinegar. They can also be used in cocktails or served on their own.
As shots, flavoured vodkas and spirits are served chilled, at 4–6°C.
The alcohol content of flavoured vodka must be at least 37.5% by volume, whereas flavoured spirits can be milder.
