If you're looking for a vodka that is tasteless, odorless and void of any flavor or aroma, then Cardinal Sin is definitely not for you! We developed Cardinal Sin to push the envelope of artisan distilling with the intent to produce an absolutely smooth, ultra-pure vodka that maintains a hint of the character and sweetness from our toasted 2-row malted barley.
This philosophy of developing a world-class vodka that remains true to our desire for artisanal uniqueness has been confirmed by the widely respected Beverage Tasting Institute. While giving Cardinal Sin their Gold Medal rating of "Exceptional", the BTI also noted the uniqueness in their tasting notes:
"Clear. Aromas suggest crème brulee, fruit danish, praline and spice with a soft, dryish light-to-medium body and a grainy crusty raisin bread, chocolate milk, and pepper nuanced finish. An interesting range of flavors that will work well in fall and winter cocktails, particularly with cream."
Adam England, head spirits buyer at the Lukas Liquor Superstore in St. Louis states:
"The flavor is one of the most unique, extremely-smooth and delightful that has crossed my palate in years. Hands down, this is the best vodka I have ever come across in my career, because of how balanced it is on the three main points: nose, taste & finish. All three are excellent and you can taste the quality."
So if you're looking for a world-class vodka that stands apart from the crowd, Cardinal Sin is definitely for you!
