Crafted Expressions – Flavored Vodkas

Header-CraftedExpressions

Twenty 2 Crafted Expressions is the result of combining America’s Most Awarded Vodka for quality with real natural ingredients you can actually see in the bottle. While most all other flavored vodkas get their taste from a couple drops of clear concentrated chemicals, Twenty 2 Crafted Expressions is bottle-infused with as careful measure of real ingredients, and nothing else. Contains no added sweeteners, artificial flavors, or artificial colors. Bottled at 80 proof, and available in variety of bold flavors including Organic Citrus Peel, Whole Bean Coffee, Black Peppercorn, Organic Cinnamon Stick, Double Vanilla Bean, and Chipotle Pepper, Twenty 2 Crafted Expressions is the way flavored vodka should be.

What is Bottle Infused? Bottle infusing is the process of combining straight (unflavored) 80 proof vodka with a measure of real ingredients, combined and sealed in the glass bottle the vodka is sold in. Bottle infusing allows the added ingredients to impart flavors and aroma permanently into the alcohol. Not all ingredients are good for bottle infusing, so care must be taken to choose the right components to combine. Bottle infusing at 80 proof can take up to 45 days to fully reach saturation, however many ingredients reach full flavor profile sooner.

What is meant by “Clear Concentrated Chemicals”? Simply put, the only way to truly achieve Whipped Cream Flavored vodka is to combine a couple drops of whipped cream flavoring concentrate into a large batch of vodka. These artificial flavors, even when labeled “natural”, are a complex combination of up to 20 different kinds of esters, aldehydes, and other chemicals that give real food it’s flavor, but which have been extracted in a laboratory and rearranged to trick your brain into thinking it’s tasting freshly whipped cream. A quick look at other brands of vodka, who focus on creating what we call “flavors for the sake of it”, will demonstrate the vast ability of chemical companies to trick our brains into thinking we’re tasting something that is not actually there.
