Review: Dixon’s Silver Creek Vodka

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 31, 2019

Dixon’s Distilled Spirits is located in Guelph Ontario. This small distillery produces two brands of Vodka (Silvercreek and Flaming Caesar), two styles of Wicked Gin (a Licorice Botanical Blend and a Citrus Botanical Blend), as well as a ready to drink mix called Gin Fusion.

According to Dixon’s website, Dixon’s Silver Creek Vodka is:

Distilled from Canadian corn and hand-bottled with pride. Carbon filtered for a pure, smooth taste with delicate notes of citrus and pear and with a bready undertone. Perfect on its own, on the rocks or in a martini.

I spent a couple afternoons with Silver Creek Vodka and my resulting review can be found by clicking on the following link:

Review: Dixon’s Silver Creek Vodka

“… When I brought the chilled glass to my nose, I found the aroma was clean with only very light scents of starch flour and grain spice. However, when I took a small sip I was taken aback by a light but firm metallic taste and an unfortunate vegetal quality. I could also taste a mild sweetness, some grainy spice and an impression of mojito mint …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with two cocktail suggestions, the Sliver Creek Gimlet, and the Sloe and Comfortable Silver Creek Screw.

Chimo!

Review: Dixon’s Flaming Caesar Vodka

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 23, 2019

Flaming Casar Vodka

Dixon’s Distilled Spirits is located in Guelph Ontario. This small distillery produces two brands of Vodka (Silvercreek and Flaming Caesar), two styles of Wicked Gin (a Licorice Botanical Blend and a Citrus Botanical Blend), as well as a ready to drink mix called Gin Fusion.

According to Dixon’s website

We heard the call for a better Caesar, and we answered! Made with Silvercreek Vodka infused with handpicked ingredients, it’s packed with flavour and heat. Just mix with your favourite brand of clam and tomato cocktail for a perfect Caesar.

Dixon’s Silver Creek Vodka is spiced with garlic, horseradish, dill, celery seed, scotch bonnets and red chili peppers. It is filtered clear and bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Dixon’s Flaming Casar Vodka

“… When I took my first taste, it was with a friend of mine who is particularly keen on Caesar Cocktails. We were both quite exited as the Flaming Caesar Spirit, (although not flaming) seemed to hold great promise. We both loved the pungent earthiness of the spice blend in particular the balance between the horseradish, the garlic and the chili pepper …”

I hope you enjoy my review!

Chimo!

Review: Dixon’s Wicked Gin (Licorice Botanical Blend)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 22, 2019

Dixon’s Distilled Spirits is located in Guelph Ontario. This small distillery produces two brands of Vodka (Silvercreek and Flaming Caesar), two styles of Wicked Gin (a Licorice Botanical Blend and a Citrus Botanical Blend), as well as a ready to drink mix called Gin Fusion.

According to the back label of the bottle, Dixon’s Wicked Gin (Licorice Botanical Blend) is non-traditional containing notes of juniper, coriander, licorice root, paradise seed, with hints of cinnamon and elderberry. The back label adds that the natural black licorice flavour should pair quite well with lemonade, tonic, and root beer.​

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Dixon’s Wicked Gin (Licorice Botanical Blend)

“… I like that the Wicked Gin is as advertised, a licorice forward spirit. I also like that the juniper has not been drowned out such that the spirit retains its identity as a juniper based spirit …”

I hope you enjoy my review as well as the cocktail which follows.

Chimo!
