The distinctive fruit has been picked by the bucket-load, to obtain the purest fruit essence, pure enough to match the sanctity of ingredients in 42 Below vodka.
42 Below do not just add feijoa juice or synthesize the flavour. They collect the flesh of the fruit. They gather the heady, fruity steam produced when it is heated. They turn that into a liquid which is the very essence of the feijoa, and they infuse that into the vodka.
The result is a crystal-pure vodka infused with the intense flavours and aromas of this slightly citrus, slightly sweet, very fresh and almost strange fruit.
A fruit well known by New Zealanders and South Americans, but little known elsewhere. A real backyard fruit - and that is where you find the ingredients to go with it such as fresh mint, local apple and pear juices or citruses.
It is a world first from 42 Below and there are more unique flavours up their sleeves yet!
