Vodka is the ‘King.’ The king of spirits that is. It is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks in the world. Even James Bond knows that.

Research by LiveScience showed that in 2020, vodka sales in the US were more than $45 billion and US consumers were able to guzzle around 189.7 million gallons of vodka.

Most people actually have had an experience with vodka and can remember sharing a bottle with their friends while in college or while celebrating something in their lives. Of course, there are also plenty of hangover stories to go with that.

Vodka is created through a fermentation and distillation process that’s very unique and one that has been perfected over the years.

New technologies have made companies like Switch Vodka streamline the process and come up with an even better drink.

Vodka is flavorless, which is why it goes down smoother as a shot than other liquors, but in order to truly appreciate the classiness that comes with vodka, you have to take it as the rich folks do – sipping.

You should however note that the TTB – the governmental organization that regulates alcohol classification in the US, recently changed the classic definition of vodka and removed all forms of reference to it being ’flavorless.’

In this effect, manufacturers are able to finally argue that their spirit does indeed have a distinct character and flavor.

What Is The True Test Of A Sipping Vodka?

The truest test of a sipping vodka is that it not only should taste great, but it should pair deliciously with all foods. The greatest sipping vodka should cut through caviar like a knife, it should go through pickled herring, charcuterie, stinky cheese, gravlax, foie gras, and anything cured!

Try Sipping On Switch Vodka “Light”

Switch vodka is what you would call ‘A class act.’

It is lighter than other vodkas and alcoholic drinks. It’s not harsh like other vodkas or spirits, where you’d need to drown it with a flavored soda or a “chaser.”

It is designed for people who care about their bodies because it has low calories, low carbs, no sugars, and absolutely no artificial ingredients. It’s all-natural!

Drinking Switch vodka is more than enjoying the best-tasting, healthy and clean drink. It’s about developing a classy and superior lifestyle as the drink embodies an active outdoor lifestyle for people who intentionally care about what they consume.

Does Switch Vodka Come With Flavors?

Yes. Switch vodka comes with a few different flavors, which makes it one of the best sipping vodkas. The flavors are 100% naturally derived. They come in three different ones, such as:

Light Spirit

The light spirit is pure vodka that’s created through the advanced iStill process of Switch Vodka. This is a drink that’s extremely pure and does not contain any of the bad stuff that nobody wants to drink. They say that it’s ‘As pure as the Rocky mountain air’ when distilled.

Peach Basil

This is probably not the most popular of combinations when it comes to drinks, but it does hit the spot! It is made of vapor-infused basil and real peaches. You will absolutely love the taste and the difference it makes compared to other vodka drinks.

Pomegranate Lemongrass

This drink is quite subtle in taste but it is a truly satisfying combination of flavors. When mixed in a cocktail, you can enjoy it straight-up, or with some sparkling water. The taste will take the edge off after a long hard day.
