Test: Putinoff Premium Vodka 40% vol. from Lidl

A Lidl Premium Vodka, which is very easy to drink.

The Putinoff Premium vodka is one of some more expensive vodka brands, which you can buy in Lidl supermarket. Anyhow 0,5 liter costs in Lidl 4,99
and it is more expensive than Aldi-Nord vodka which I have introduced last week. Does one get more vodka for more money?

Alcohol content of Putinoff is 40%. This is quite properly as for a cheap vodka. So you need less vodka to achieve effect, furthermore it is distilled 5 times, what makes its quality higher and explains a bit higher price.

Also the vodka bottle is very stylish and different from those that you usually can see in Lidl&Co shelves. No one knows if the Label in a shape of a coffin is a subtle kind of black humor. Maybe the Label should illustrate not a coffin but a diamond, who knows?

The number 5 on the label is an indicator of quality and illustrates the 5 time distillation.
Also the name of Vodka Putinoff has an amusing effect on me. “Putinoff”, so Putin off.

I don’t believe that Russian president Wladimir Putin would disappear with this vodka. In his great country there is enough Premium vodka.

Best it smells when you uncap a new bottle. After some time its flavor flies away or rather my nose gets used to it.

First question, I asked to myself, why vodka is made from grain. I thought it was made from potatoes, sure it was my mistake. Adding of pure oxygen during the storage refined the taste of Putinoff vodka. The manufacturer Eckerts recommends to drink it with ice or lemon juice.

On the back label there is a recommendation not to drink Putinoff Vodka during pregnancy.
Actually this recommendation should be self-evident, but when I look at some
people on the street, I think it is advisable to print there that information.

My conclusion

it without any mix. Word of Honor! If you want more pictures from Putinoff
vodka, look on Istagram.

    Hi, I would like to buy Putinoff but I like drinks to be sweet or semi-sweet in taste, and of course not bitter, so my question is what taste putinoff has, to see if I will buy it.
