James Bond would never make his signature shaken martini with marshmallow-flavored vodka. But there’s a growing trend among spirit consumers who don’t share 007′s passion for Vesper.
Vodka makers like Diageo (NYSE:DEO) know that many of their fans like booze with a little zing. That’s why there’s been an increase in creative vodka flavors. Since consumers favor vodkas with either a sweet or spicy edge, many of the wackiest new flavors follow suit. There also are some savory bottles of vodka on shelves.
CNBC recently compiled a list of some of the wackiest flavored vodkas on the planet. Here’s a look at five:
- Marshmallow: Smirnoff
- Chili Pepper: Absolut
- Smoked Salmon: Alaska Distillery
- Cookie Dough: Pinnacle Vodka
- Scorpion: Skorppio Vodka
I promise that I didn’t make up the last one.
