Type of product: Vinosa Vodka flavoured by infusion by cold maceration of cedar peels.
About O de V: The O de V project is a Mediterranean reinterpretation of the world's most popular clear spirits, Gin and Vodka. They are not just “Italian” because they are produced in Italy, but their composition has been modified and is closer to Italian tradition, using grapes and wine instead of grains, with the skilful addition of citrus fruits and absolutely distinctive botanical species. Full, smooth, complex and sensuous spirits, as you would expect from anything grown under the Mediterranean sun and produced with Italian know-how.

Nose and flavour: didactic in the ability to express the scent and taste of cedar Harmoniousness, purity and delicacy are the most perceptible aspects. "O de V" is a surprisingly eclectic flavoured vodka, perfect both for a smooth consumption and for mixing. A pleasant energy envelops the palate, but it is soft and velvety in its persistence of the fruit. Delicately perceptible alkaline.
Taking advantage of the excellent organoleptic properties of some aromatic international and indigenous grape varieties (mainly Chardonnay, Glera, Incrocio Manzoni) we have produced a top quality product. The distillation occurs in five distinct phases. The first four distillations serve to separate and remove any unwanted chemical and organic elements. The fifth distillation, performed with a cutting-edge alembic, is done to select the delicate aromatic presence of the vines.
