One of the most reputable professional tasting competitions, “International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC)”, was held in London. “GRADUS” vodka produced by “Permalko” JSC won a Gold Medal.
Best drinks from the whole world take part in the “IWSC” competition every year. The winners are identified by “blind tasting”. The experts judge drinks only by their qualitative properties and taste. The brand and manufacturer of a drink are hidden behind its contesting number, and the drinks taking part in the competition remain “incognito”. Prestige of the brands and manufacturers cannot influence results of the “IWSC” contest. That’s why the competition often surprises the public with sensational wins and unexpected defeats.
The first time when “Permalko” JSC took part in the contest was in 2017. “GRADUS” vodka immediately received great recognition, it was acknowledged as one of the best participants and was honored with a “Gold Outstanding” medal.
According to the CEO of “Permalko” JSC, Oleg Kotelnikov, “This victory is a result of a focused effort over many years at the enterprise to increase quality of our products. The prize that “GRADUS” has received today in the UK, proves that we have succeeded in creating a vodka of high reputation and international renown which is second to none among the best vodkas in the world.”
“Permalko” JSC successfully exports its products into the CIS countries, Europe, the USA, Africa. The company plans to expand its sales and distribution geography even further.
