On Q: VVH VODK Caramel Liquor in Beijing


I ran into Simon Pendergast and Brandon Hess of beer and spirits distributor Dxcel last night at Q Bar and it transpired that not only does the company distribute VVH VODK Caramel Liquor but also that a bottle of it was on hand. We opened it. The packaging and name don’t particularly resound with me but this stuff does taste good. (And for those into trophies, they noted that this tipple took top spot for liqueurs at the 2010 International Wine and Spirit Competition.)

As luck would have it, Tangla Hotel chef Phil Nock was in Q and he and head bartender Wendy Yang worked on several different concoctions containing VVH, Kahlua and vodka. Good times.
