Karlsson’s Coming to Get You

Vodka’s vodka, innit?

Karlsson's Bloody Mary
Looking sharp Nick...

Well no, obviously not. But even so, sometimes you do wonder if there is room on the back bar each time a new one comes along.

That said, BarLifeUK strode into Hush for a Karlsson’s Gold tasting with high hopes, and we weren’t disappointed.

While we didn’t get the chance to sample the vodka as nature intended (neat, cold) and so can’t report on its true character, we were given molecular Bloody Marys, served in Champagne flutes crowned with an inch of foam, that were quite extraordinary.

The taste is best described as drinking tomatoey fire through a jumper worn by someone standing too close to a barbeque.

While this might not sound like a glowing endorsement, they tasted bloody marvellous, prompting fellow BarLifer Simon to exclaim: “That’s the nicest foamy drink I’ve ever had.”

High praise indeed…

Get some Karlsson’s here.
