Xfour Vodka Tasting and Chocolate

Yesterday I attended the launch of a new BC based artisan vodka in a penthouse on the 32nd floor of a building downtown Vancouver with a spectacular view of the city skyline. Xfour, is a sipping vodka, made from rye and corn. I had a preview tasting of this vodka in a Strawberry Cosmo served to me at C Restaurant last week and I enjoyed the smooth taste without the bite at the end.

Xfour Vodka

Xfour is distilled four times and the glacier water is retrieved from a 356 foot well. It was great to see Xoxolat pairing their chocolate with the Xfour vodka in a delicious Chocolate Martini that I had the pleasure of sipping.

Here are a couple of recipes for your own enjoyment.

2 parts Xfour
