Russian Garant Horseradish



a stupid idea

[40%, flavored, sampled in Germany]

This vodka brand is called Русский Гарантъ – Russian Garant Horseradish vodka. It’s from Russia, and this particular edition has been flavored with, well… horseradish!

Does the thought of mixing horseradish with vodka sound horrible to you? Well, it didn’t to me. Before trying this I thought: well, I usually have bread and pickles and all sorts of things with my vodka, so why would I not want to try a vodka infused with horseradish?

I was wrong.

the horror

And this wasn’t just my own opinion. All my friends around the table agreed that this was the least drinkable vodka I had ever got for us. It wasn’t so much the vodka itself, just that terrible, terrible horseradish flavor that made it intolerable.

Russian Garant Horseradish is bad

The tragic thing is, I can’t tell you much about the vodka itself. The flavoring was such an insult to the senses, it was basically undrinkable. The aftertaste was horrible, too. Maybe if you really like horseradish, then you will be able to deal with this drink. Well, maybe.

The bottle design was okay. The price was around 15€ for 700ml, so that was alright..

I’m not sure what to say about this one. BEWARE?
