Christiania Vodka Christiania Vodka's trademark is "The World's Smoothest Vodka". We had a chance to review a bottle of the spirit and we came to the conclusion that Christiania Vodka is anything but the world's smoothest vodka. Actually we found it quite nasty.

There are a number of better vodka's which we have had the opportunity to review here and consider quite superior to Christiania Vodka - Trump Vodka, Zyr Vodka, heck even bargain priced Sobieski Vodka is waaaay better than Christiania.

Christiania Vodka has a great story, and a slick marketing campaign - but all that does not make a great vodka. We found Christiania Vodka a bit too strong and harsh, especially for a six time distilled potato based spirit. Potato based vodka's are supposed to be the smoothest of the smooth, and if you ever have the opportunity compare Christiania Vodka to another potato based spirit - Trump Vodka.

In my opinion, Christiania Vodka represents everything I dislike about vodka - an average product trying to brainwash consumers with a slick marketing campaign. This review might be a bit harsh but this is my personal opinion. There are some who seem to like Christiania Vodka - but I'll let you be the judge. In the meantime somebody please pass me a bottle of Zyr Vodka ....

I think that you might have been slightly intoxicated on your Zyr Vodka when you “review[ed]” Christiania.

I had the opportunity to try Christiania at an art opening a few weeks ago and found it to be very good, and in fact, very smooth.

Mark, are you referring to this art opening that you promoted for Christiania vodka -> http://www.flickr.com/groups/strobist/discuss/72157604691985948/
I’ve invested an enormous amount of money and time educating myself to see through slick marketing campaigns and grandiose claims. What other potato based vodka’s have you tried apart from Christiania?

As one of the “some who seem to like Christinia Vodka” I can say, in all honesty, Zyr is a superior vodka. Hands down. Laying down my own money for a bottle of vodka, any day of the week, I am going for Zyr over Christiania.

Thanks for the tip. I’ll stick with the Grey Goose.

You are waaaay wrong about Christiania….It is a GREAT vodka….MUCH better than the vodkas you named and puts Grey Goose to shame.

It’s too bad that the Vodka is not what it seems to be. The bottle really looks great, maybe they should have invested more in a better drink and less in the design. Unfortunately, everyone is up for more profit, no matter what kind of drinks they produce. I can only think of a few products which are actually worth buying.

The smoothest vodka that I have ever tried was “Brilliant” that is (was) actually made in Scotland
Svedka and Fris are excellent for mixing but Brilliant is very smooth for sipping neat

I have spent a great deal of time and money tasting various vodkas as well. I will not debate that there are many fine vodkas out there however, I find Christiania one of the finest out there. In fact, I have had a very difficult time finding it here in Houston so I have friends from other places keep an eye out for it and send me some from time to time. Vodka is much like many things in life, personal preference. Having spent years drinking many types of vodkas, I would place Christiania in the top of my list.
