(NEW YORK) — With flavored vodka becoming all the rage in the beverage industry — tipplers can taste everything from marshmallow to bacon flavored vodka nowadays — a leading distiller of flavor-infused spirits has gone old-school. Grade school, in fact: Van Gogh Vodka has created PB&J vodka, a liquor that tastes like the cafeteria classic.
Master distiller Tim Vos chose a raspberry flavored “jelly” to go with the “oily structure” of the peanut butter taste.
“It is challenging to transform a famous food flavor into a drink flavor,” Vos said, “however I think this transition is beautiful and the flavor is intriguing — I am certain that everyone will want to enjoy more than one glass!”
