Created after the old Dutch tradition of flavoring spirits with fruit essences, Vincent Citroen is a delicately fresh blend of lemon-lime extract in a base of Vincent Vodka. For six weeks, Mediterranean lemons and limes are double infused in underground vats in 196-proof alcohol to bring out the true taste of the citrus. The lemon-lime-infused alcohol is then filtered and mixed with Vincent Vodka (along with a secret blend of other citrus fruits). The alcohol is reduced to 80 proof with purified water. Vincent Citroen Vodka is ideal as a refreshing cocktail mixer or enjoyed pure and simple.

The bottle shows Vincent's self portrait with lemons and limes in the foreground. This most famous painting is magnified by the Vincent Citroen in a 3D picture.
A combination of fresh Spanish lemons and Mediterranean limes are stacked in an underground (glass tile lined) tank and 196 proof alcohol is poured over the fruit to remain for 6 weeks. The lemon/lime infused alcohol is siphoned off, filtered and stored in another tank. The fruit is removed and fresh fruit is placed in the underground tank. The already "high proof" infused alcohol is poured back into the tank and left for another 6 weeks. Again, the alcohol is siphoned off, filtered, reduced to 80 proof and finally stored in a separate tank.
The Master Distiller adds the double infused, lemon/lime flavored vodka to the Vincent Vodka to make a perfect blend called Vincent Citroen. The name "Citroen" in Dutch means lemon.
