26th February, 2013 by Luke Holmes

As the flavoured vodka market becomes more and more saturated, it falls upon producers to turn to more innovative and unusual vodka flavours to catch the public’s attention.

There are some wacky and rathe runusual vodka flavours out there

Flavoured vodka is adored Stateside and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. According to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS), more than 40% of all spirits – predominantly vodka – now have flavoured line extensions, with over 220 different flavours from citrus to bacon now existing.

The most popular flavours in the States are: Orange (163), Cherry (98), Coffee (87), Peach (85), Apple (84), Chocolate (82), Raspberry (82), Lemon (77), Anise (75), Lime (67), Coconut (59), Grape (57), Strawberry (54), Vanilla (50), Tea (47), Citrus (43), Blackberry (38), Mango (38), Peppermint (38) and Amaretto (34). Surprisingly Whipped and Cake don’t appear here, quite possibly due to their overwhelming sweetness and limited mixability in cocktails.

But of course, some flavours work better than others. We decided to investigate the market to discover the most unusual vodka flavours available. This list is ranked on the merits of originality and strangeness; so if you buy one of the bizarre flavours and it tastes bizarre, ask yourself, what did you expect?

If you think we missed any out, or you know of an even stranger flavour, please let us know by leaving a comment below.

    I completely agree about the Glazed Donut Vodka the replication of a Krispy Original Donut is uncanny.

    I tried the Salmon vodka from Alaska this week, also good, quite a lot of dill and some smoke but not too fish, not that fishy at all really. (Whether that is good or bad is up to you.)
