Muscle from Brussels
They recently gave their single estate, quadruple-distilled, charcoal filtered vodka a much-needed facelift, and it's one of the best-looking and tasting examples we've ever had the pleasure of drinking way too much of. Packaged in a dashing Art Deco-style octagonal cobalt blue bottle, the yeasty, potent, and somewhat thick, syrupy spirit manages to mix mineral and citrus notes without stirring up a *coup d'état*; quite the opposite, in fact, a match made in some souse's heaven. Not bad for a country where half the population refers to themselves as “Walloons."
