What Would Chicago Vodka Taste Like?


Our Boston counterparts recently received a bottle of Absolut Boston, a flavored vodka specially designed to capture the essence of Beantown via notes of elderflower and black tea and some promotional copy about the Gren Monster. After conducting a highly scientific taste test at GSHQ, the Bostonians decided that it was, in short, awful. Absolut has created city-specific vodkas for New Orleans and Los Angeles, and we can only imagine Chicago is there on the list as well, and we're not sure what to expect so many of the iconic Chicago flavors are meat-related, and that doesn't exactly translate to cocktail hour. Essence of hot dog? Giardinera and beef? Eau de historic slaughterhouse? How would you flavor a Chicago vodka?
