V2 Vodka: High-Energy Vodka

Superpremium Vodka With A Caffeine & Taurine Energy Boost


CAPSULE REPORT: Imagine a vodka you can drink all night without falling asleep. Maybe that’s an oversimplification, but V2, a superpremium vodka from Holland, is infused with caffeine and taurine, the essential amino acid found in Red Bull and other energy drinks. The result: VGood. After energy drinks came onto the scene and quickly became popular vodka mixers, this was a concept waiting to happen, and is a truly differentiated new vodka.

What do you get when you cross an energy drink with vodka? V2 Vodka, a new vodka brand that should have staying power among the scores of others vying for consumer attention and shelf space at stores and bars. Made in Holland, it’s a superpremium vodka that’s infused with caffeine and taurine, the essential amino acid found in Red Bull and other energy drinks. A spirit that keeps its patrons more spirited, this vodka has a true raison d’etre. Made in small-batches, V2 is distilled five times; each distillation filters out more impurities, resulting in a cleaner, smoother flavor. There’s quality taste as well as energy.

The past several years have seen an explosion of energy drinks and energy drink-mixed cocktails. While people who truly appreciate vodka and who have tasted Red Bull may shudder at the thought, “Vodka / Red Bull” is a familiar call at bars nationwide. Perhaps Wingard Importers felt the shudder, but they seized the opportunity and developed V2.

Now, you can drink and dance longer—or whatever else you want to do with that extra energy. And, you can enjoy your vodka neat or as a Black Russian, Bloody Mary, Cosmopolitan, Long Island Iced Tea, Jell-O Shot, Martini, Mudslide, Moscow Mule, Screwdriver and dozens of other vodka cocktails. Yes, that includes Sex On The Beach.

Energy drinks have become a popular mixer because revelers want to be able to stay awake and have a good time—not be made drowsy by the alcohol. There’s no doubt that the combination has been a huge success.

But it’s not a universal solution. Many drinkers who would like the energy shrink from the taste of the energy drinks—they’re not exactly the mixer of choice for a good vodka (or anything else). For an alternative solution, there are the energy mixers from Hiball, tonic water and club soda versions of energy drinks that contain the full energy drink complement of taurine, caffeine, guarana, ginseng and B vitamins. But for fancier cocktails, V2 is a welcome addition to the shelf.

Now, instead of mixing energy drinks with vodka to get the boost, enjoy the taste-free infusion of caffeine and taurine into the vodka itself, without sweeteners, artificial tastes or carbonation. Enjoy that energized Appletini in all of its apple-y splendor.

Party with energy but remember: With all this extra energy, you’ve still got to drink responsibly.
