Vodka is one of the most versatile spirits. Its nearly odorless and tasteless nature pairs well with any flavor and also provides a blank slate for any flavor infusions.
Its recipes are diverse, using foundations that range from sugar cane to corn, to wheat. There have been numerous flavors of vodka brands over the past 60 years.
And a favorite summertime flavor is pineapple vodka. Read on to discover my list of the best pineapple vodka brands.
A new player in the vodka scene, Pinnacle Vodka is an American vodka distiller that debuted in 2002. Pinnacle Pineapple uses the distillery's gold medal-winning Pinnacle Original Vodka recipe infused with pineapple flavor for a juicy, sweet, and acidic pour.
It's a great ingredient for a summertime tropical cocktail.
Stolichnaya Crushed Pineapple
Better known as Stoli vodka, Stolichnaya is an Eastern European vodka distillery that opened in 1938 and is touted as the pioneer of flavored vodkas.
The Stolichnaya Crushed Pineapple vodka is iconic, inspiring the popular cocktail called the Stoli Doli which is essentially homemade pineapple vodka.
Stoli Crushed Pineapple uses real pineapple puree to infuse its original vodka recipe. It's a delicious and pure pineapple flavor that tasted best fresh out of the freezer.
Three Olives Pineapple
Three Olives is a British vodka distillery using a wheat blend for its original recipe. Three Olives Pineapple is a delicious and complex bottle, giving off an irresistible aroma of overripe pineapple and brown sugar.
The flavor profile on the palate features baked pineapple and buttery undertones with a caramelized finish.
Van Gogh Pineapple
Receiving four stars from The Spirit Journal, Van Gogh is a modern American vodka distiller from New Orleans. The creative brand uses its artsy name to insinuate that vodka is an art form.
Van Gogh Pineapple blends fresh pineapple and orange flavor for a sweet and tangy spirit that received the gold medal from Beverage Testing Institute.
Ciroc is a modern French vodka distillery that offers a grape-based vodka distilled five times. The original recipe is inherently fruity, enhancing and complementing other fruit flavors.
Ciroc Pineapple is a perfect example of fruit complementing fruit. It uses crushed pineapple for a fresh tropical flavor palate. I recommend using it instead of rum in a mojito.
New Amsterdam Pineapple
New Amsterdam is an American vodka company with a trendy line of flavored vodkas using real fruit infusions to flavor their original triple-filtered, five-times distilled vodka.
New Amsterdam Pineapple is a smooth, sweet, and nutty vodka with flavor notes of pineapple and coconut that would taste great instead of rum in a Pina Colada.
Svedka Mango Pineapple
Svedka Vodka is a hip American vodka distiller and canned cocktail producer with a unique line of Svedka flavored vodkas. Svedka Mango Pineapple sources its fresh mangos and pineapples from the Philippines for the ultimate tropical spirit.
If you like ultra-sweet drinks, this vodka flavor will soon be your favorite for summertime cocktails.
Any vodka drinker has heard of Smirnoff, the Russian-born vodka distiller that is now one of the best-selling brands worldwide. Smirnoff Pineapple uses its corn vodka recipe infused with pineapple flavor for a subtly sweet, tropical flavor palate.
It tastes great with cranberry juice for a tropical riff on the classic Cosmopolitan cocktail, which, incidentally, is a cocktail inspired by the Smirnoff brand.
Skyy Infusions Pineapple
Skyy is an award-winning vodka distillery out of San Fransisco that uses a state-of-the-art column distillation process and multiple filtrations to create one of the purest and smoothest-tasting vodkas on the market.
Skyy Infusions Pineapple uses real fresh pineapple to deliver a perfect balance of sweetness and tangy that I enjoy with a twist of lime and soda water.
360 Vodka Pineapple
360 is an eco-friendly distillery out of Missouri that uses locally sourced corn, wind power, and an efficient production process to reduce its carbon footprint.
360 Vodka Pineapple is a sweet and tropical sip that tastes delicious over ice with a pineapple garnish. You can also find a wealth of creative pineapple vodka cocktails on 360 Vodka's website.
