23 karat hold flakes easily impress, and they do so with Wasser Gold. The 38% Alc./Vol vodka is now produced in in Gdansk, Poland using a secret 16th-century recipe. Dozens of herbs contribute to its unique flavour. Tsar Peter I the Great was introduced to the drink when he had an embassy in Danzig and had regular shipments sent to Russia. And the reason why he did so is that this is a very smooth drink, boasting of an array of flavours – and we detected a sweetness with a rich almost star anise flavour. One shot suffices as an aniseed indulgence.
