Japanese unite with Dutch. World peace ensues.
The desire to bring more and more unique beverages to the market has created some interesting fusions of libations.
One of the latest is Wasabe Vodka. It's a 75/25 mix of Dutch Vodka and Japanese-made Sake with a special blending tequnique that ensures that the structure of the Sake is unharmed (Maybe they blend it by waterfall).
The drink is supposed to have extremely different tastes at room temperature and when chilled. They also imply that by the fact that it's 70 proof, that it has less of a kick than standard vodka.
