NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crystal Head, the bestselling, ultra-premium vodka, was awarded a Gold Medal for Excellent Taste from the 15th International Tasting Contest at the 2013 PRODEXPO Exhibition, in Moscow, Russia.
The exhibition, which took place from February 11 to 15, is the largest food exhibition in Eastern Europe. It hosts most prestigious tasting competition in all of Russia. There were 198 companies, representing beverages from more than 22 countries that took part in this year's tasting contest. Crystal Head was one of the entries amongst over 400 other vodkas that were entered.
The panel of 11 judges, consisted of the best tasters of wines and spirits in Russia. The tasting committee are representatives of National Institute of Beverages and Wine, National Institute of Food Biotechnology and the International Association of Sommeliers in Russia.
Co-founder of Crystal Head, Dan Aykroyd, simply states, "Crystal Head Gold Medal - best tasting vodka in Moscow contest – a significant honor. Like winning best sushi in Japan! If Russians do not know their vodka, who does?!"
Crystal Head, was inspired by the legend of the 13 crystal heads. The heads are thought to offer spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them, and as such stands not as a symbol of death, but of life. Crystal Head is a Canadian vodka, completely free of any additives. This naturally pure vodka is produced using the highest quality grains and the deep glacial aquifer water of Newfoundland, Canada. It is quadruple distilled and filtered seven times. Three of the filtrations are through semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds.
"We are thrilled to have won Best Tasting Vodka in the largest bar show in Russia. Winning such a top honour in a country that has such a long history of great vodkas is very gratifying," says Jonathan Hemi Vice President, Globefill Inc. "Russians are well known to have some of the most discerning palates for vodka and are known worldwide as one of the best vodka producing countries. This gold medal only further verifies for us that our vodka is more than just a stunning bottle. It is also the finest tasting, additive free vodka in the world," Hemi adds.
This isn't the first award Crystal Head has brought home. The brand was presented a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2011 for its premium taste. More than 200 vodkas entered the competition and Crystal Head was one in only a handful of brands to receive a double gold. Most recently CHV received two additional prestigious awards at the 2012 Australian Liquor Industry Awards. The first was for Luxury Spirits - $75 Plus and the second for New Product of the Year.
