Add Flavor to Summer Cocktails with Smoke Lab Aniseed Vodka

SMOKE LAB, India’s first homegrown premium vodka, is serving up two delicious cocktail recipes that add the perfect amount of spiciness to your summer cocktails. Each delicious and refreshing cocktail celebrates the distinct qualities of the distiller’s newest venture -The ANISEED Flavored Vodka – that debuted in the United States in January 2021.

The company’s Aniseed Vodka is a playful exploration of a much-loved Indian spice. It offers refreshing notes of fennel and licorice and finishes with a creamy, sweetness and delicate fennel blossom note on the palate.

The company’s Founder & CEO, Varun Jain commented, “SMOKE LAB ANISEED Flavored Vodka is a unique expression of India and our culture. Since we launched in the U.S. this past January, our newest vodka is getting tremendous buzz and winning many impressive awards including the top-of-class Masters Award from the London-based Asian Spirits Masters Competition and gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, SIP Awards and Bartender Spirits Awards.”

Jain added, “We are thrilled with the reception of both ANISEED Vodka in the U.S. We encourage bartenders and consumers alike to mix up one of these delicious cocktails or create their own concoction and experience our mystical aromatic spirit for themselves. Here are a few of our favorites:”
