Grey Goose Le Citron

If you want high-quality, high-class vodka, you simply cannot go wrong with France’s own Grey Goose. The brand is known for its stellar taste, and the same goes for its citrus flavor. Grey Goose Le Citron is a lemon-flavored vodka bursting with bright essential oils from the lemons of the Menton region of France. I like the flavor because it is bright yet balanced, delivering a clean and subtle nod to the citrus essence we’re all craving in a refreshing cocktail. You shouldn’t have to over-mix your drink to cover up a biting alcohol taste, and you don’t have to with Grey Goose’s own lemon vodka. It’s perfect as is or in a balanced recipe.

Crop Vodka entered the liquor scene with one goal: to create clean, organic, and delicious vodka for everyone to enjoy safely and responsibly. The brand uses an all-organic farming process, ensuring customers don’t have to deal with chemicals, pesticides, or genetic modifications. On top of that, Crop has its own citrus variation: Meyer Lemon Vodka. With this lemon vodka, you get the perfect twist of sweet and tart. I thought the taste was smooth, crisp, and refreshing, making it ideal for my favorite simple soda mixes and complex cocktails alike. With a 93 rating from Wine Enthusiast, you can’t go wrong with this one.

The Absolut Company has been in business for over 100 years and has a history marked by tradition and quality. The global company is responsible for several favorite names within the liquor market, including Kahlua and Malibu. But one of its best products to date is Absolut Citron – lemon-flavored vodka. This vodka is nothing new. In fact, it’s been around since the late 80s. It boasts a smooth, lemony flavor that has proven its worth, remaining the brand’s best-selling flavor since its launch to date. Fruity, fresh, clean, and tasty, Absolut Citron has the potential to quickly become a staple in your liquor cabinet. All it took was one taste and I was sold.

If you’re a fan of Ketel One like I am, chances are you will also become a fast and dedicated fan of Ketel One’s Citroen Vodka. Why? Because Citroen starts with Ketel One’s original vodka. The lemon-flavored vodka is made by adding the essence of four different types of lemons and two different kinds of limes for an original citrus blend unique from any other brand. Its fragrance is distinctly lemony, while its flavor has a hint of honey to soften the tart lemon taste. Ketel One isn’t shy about boasting its refreshing lemon flavor, and the company leaves you with tons of great recipes to use when you try it out. 


Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka

Deep Eddy Vodka may be a newer brand on the scene compared to classic brands like Absolut, but that doesn’t make their vodka any less delicious. Deep Eddy’s original vodka is an award-winning liquor, and the brand has sponsored over 200 festivals since its launch. Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka is fantastic because it starts with that award-winning base and adds real lemon juice and just a hint of pure cane sugar to achieve its signature taste. The 10-times distilled blend is made in small batches to ensure high quality in each bottle. Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka is good enough to sip on its own, but I like to mix it into my favorite cocktail as an affordable vodka


Hangar 1 Buddha’s Hand Citron

When you look at a Hangar 1 bottle of Buddha’s Hand Citron, what do you see? At first, you might not be entirely sure. The image on the bottle looks like a cross between a bunch of bananas and a lemon.  Let’s explain. Buddha’s Hand Citron doesn’t use lemons; instead, it uses an ancient relative of the lemon, the buddha’s hand citrus fruit. The unique flavor still has that great citrusy taste you crave, but it also includes subtle notes of jasmine, apricot, and basil. Plus, it’s milder than other sharp, tart lemon flavors. So it’s truly a unique experience and a high-quality taste you just can’t beat. 


St. George California Citrus

St. George Spirits was founded in 1982 as a one-man operation and the first American distillery since Prohibition. The company has only grown since then, offering a line of gins, vodkas, whiskeys, and more. St. George California Citrus vodka uses Valencia oranges, Seville oranges, and bergamot to create a smooth, zesty flavor. Each is infused into the company’s house-made vodka and filtered for impurities. The result is a sweet and sour citrus taste with hints of orange and tart, lemony aromas. It’s all about the process at St. George.
