Rosé wine lovers are in for a treat — the much-loved drink is now available in a non-wine form. Hanger 1 has combined vodka and rose to create rosé vodka, which is pale pink in colour, but much stronger when it comes to alcoholic proof. Said to be preferably had as a shot, rather than a glass of wine, this 60 percent proof vodka packs a punch.

On Hangar 1’s website, the pretty vodka is described as having floral tasting notes of “crisp apple, sweet pea blossoms, and a hint of oak.” According to early testers, even as the drink tastes much like rose, the distinct scent of vodka still exists. According to another review on Refinery29, “It tastes a lot like vodka initially, but then that burns-so-good feeling is washed away with a delicately acidic taste that’s unmistakably rosé-like. It’s a little floral and a little fruity. That’s what makes it dangerous — the light finish is so smooth, you’ll forget you’re drinking something that’s 30 percent alcohol by volume.”

Let’s wait and watch if it lives up to the hype.
