Slavic family names
[40%, sampled in Germany]
Bazic vodka is a brand hailing from Hamburg, Germany. And it’s a rather stylish brand, too.
What about that name, though? I think the people at Bazic were trying to come up with a brand name that was cool and unique. They took the English word “basic”, but since “basic” seemed a bit too basic to them, they decided to swap the s for a z. That’s when “basic” turned into Bazic.
Or maybe the owners are actually from the Balkans, and their family name is something like “Bazic“, so they decided to go ahead and just use that.
Bazic is sweet
Aaaaaanyway, Bazic vodka tastes surprisingly good. It’s easy to drink and doesn’t burn much on the way down. I wouldn’t rank it up there with the best ones, but it’s pretty solid. The aftertaste is noticeably sweet, which I personally like.
The bottle design wasn’t anything exciting, but it was okay. And for a price of about 13€ for 700ml, this seemed like a pretty fair deal.
All in all, Bazic is probably not going to make you go WOW, but it’s a good vodka with a sweet aftertaste.
