Echo Falls Wine has been a staple in the shopping cart since I moved to the UK 2.5 years ago. And now they’ve released their very own flavoured vodka!! And not just your regular run of the mill vodka, it’s the Echo Falls Summer Berries flavoured Vodka inspired by their fabulous Fruit Fusion range. We couldn’t wait to try this fruity vodka and see what all the fuss was about.
The bottle is quite eye catching as it is adorned with bright pink raspberries, luscious red strawberries, brilliant purple blackberries and scrumptious looking blueberries. It’s definitely one that I’d be tempted to buy as soon as I saw it in the store. As soon as the bottle opens, the fragrant smell of berries awakens your senses. My mouth was watering at the sweet smell and I couldn’t wait to get sampling.
I prefer my vodka mixed but had to try it straight first. It smells sweeter than it tastes but there’s no burn or lingering aftertaste. Both positives in my books. The recommended serve is with lemonade and crushed blackberries, however, we didn’t have any, so added tonic water instead. With some dried hibiscus flowers as garnish… it was a game changer. The tonic water really brought out the sweetness of the berries and allowed the flavour to stand out on its own. I can see why fans have been raving about this on social media.
We can’t wait to try some of the recommended cocktails such as the ProEcho Falls or the Echosmopoliton.
