The CEO of “Permalko” JSC took part in the jury at the International Tasting Competition CWSA in Hong Kong

In August, the China Wine & Spirits Awards – the largest and most prestigious competition of wine and spirits in China – was held.

The jury is selected annually among recognized local and foreign experts. This year, Oleg Ivanovich Kotelnikov, the Chief Executive Officer of “Permalco”, was invited to participate as an expert taster.

China Wine & Spirits Awards 2017 was a record on number of participants – more than 5,000 drinks from 55 countries. All samples were tasted blindly. The appearance, basic quality, aroma, taste, aftertaste, and overall impression from the sample were assessed. Based on this, drinks were awarded with awards.

Our “Gradus” vodka that took part in the competition won the highest award – a double gold. The “Gradus” vodka was highly prized and recognized at the international tasting competitions not for the first time.

“Gradus” is a strategic brand of “Permalko” JSC with many years of successful history, which enjoys high popularity among consumers, both in Russia and abroad.

The main competitive advantages of “Gradus” vodka are:

– multi-stage filtration technology, which ensures the purity and high quality of the product;
– the use of high-quality “Alpha” spirit, which guarantees higher consumer properties, pure taste, and easy drinkability.
