Domaine de Canton Ginger Vodka

This liqueur, created years ago on the French Indo-China ginger root estate of Domaine de Canton in what became Vietnam, won "best in show" award at the 2007 World Beverage Competition, the largest such event in the world.

Domaine de Canton Ginger Cognac:

This 80-proof VSOP cognac is infused with baby ginger, which comes through immediately in the zesty nose.

The ginger-pepper taste relaxes a bit after the bottle is open for a while, but always reminds one of those warm ginger snaps fresh from the oven. The straw-yellow color, slight acidity, bittersweet flavoring components and tangy aftertaste make for a very unusual, refreshing liqueur.

It retails at selected stores for about $30. To find a vendor, go here. And, go here for a look at another ginger-infused drink, this one a domestic vodka.

I just bought a bottle of Domaine de Canton the other day - it is fantastic! It adds just that touch of ginger and spice that most cocktails are missing! Two thumbs up!
