Before we even get into talking about toffee vodka, ask yourself — do you like the taste of toffee?
What about vodka? Do you like, the taste? How about the light, airy feeling it gives you?
Now, ask yourself this — are you tired of having to make the painful decision between the two? We’ve got good news for you, that’s a factor no more. Enter toffee vodka. Or should I say the best toffee vodka.
Now, you can now buy a flavoured vodka that tastes just like toffee. Sometimes you need to switch things up from your typical night-out-with-the-boys-bottle-of-Smirnoff that leaves you with that
-scrunched-up face (we all try to avoid this face at all costs – it says “I picked a bad vodka, and on top of that, I can’t even handle my choice”) – Not to mention, a bad-tasting vodka leaves you with that horrific after taste that’s likely to put a sour note on the rest of your night.
One of the biggest issues with vodka is that there are just too many brands to choose from. Even worse, each brand has what seems like an infinite number of flavours.
Let’s face it – you don’t want to be that person who brings the generic peach flavored bottle of vodka to the party. Why not mix up your go-to-choice and boost your rep amongst your pals? And if you really can’t be bothered to go shopping, then by all means have a go at making homemade toffee vodka. It’s actually quite simple.
Our suggestion — spice it up with a bit with toffee flavored vodka. We’re here to make that transition even easier. Here are some of our top toffee vodka options you need to look into. We recommend trying them as soon as possible!

“Thunder! Woaaaaaaah! Thunder!”
Everybody loves that classic AC/DC song – maybe it’s the first thing that popped into your head when you read the name of this vodka. We can’t blame you, not just because it’s a catchy song, but because the satisfaction you get from listening to that song is pretty comparable to the satisfaction that comes with the smooth sweet toffee syrup that is followed by the heat of the pure triple distilled vodka.

We’re talking mostly about the highly acclaimed Spirit Business Awards where they won Gold in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

TOFKA Toffee Vodka Review – Most Delicious Toffee Vodka
This vodka is basically the same price as the Thunder brand for 700ml. This product has a very similar taste as the other Toffee vodka brands, but what separates it from the rest is the fact that you are supposed to “shake the storm” — which is basically just shaking the bottle before serving it as a shot, over ice, or even with – get this –apple juice. While in the process of shaking the storm though, we advise you look down at the bottle. You can see the contents swirling around almost causing a creamy, delicious, whirlwind effect.
This vodka is perfectly suitable for vegetarians and contains a 29.9 alcohol percentage.
But, we can’t end this review before talking about bottle – it’s a good-looking design and definitely a nice piece that can be added to anybody’s collection before (or after) consumption. This vodka is meant to be a sipping liqueur, so be read to savor it slowly.

V gallery Premium Toffee Fudge Flavored Vodka Spirit Drink Review – Best Premium Toffee Vodka
Personally, we have to admit we favour this bottle design out of the bunch – but luckily, you are paying for quality of the liquid, not just the bottle, when it comes to this vodka.
With a small loan of a million dollars, you can own 2 bottles of this delicious vodka. Okay, okay, we’re only joking. It’s not that much, however, that is still significantly more money compared to the previous two vodkas if you factor in bottle size.

This is also another vodka that is best served chilled or over ice.
