Best Vodka – 2017: GRADUS PREMIUM by Permalko JSC won a Grand Prix

In Moscow took place one of the most reputable professional tasting competitions in Eastern Europe – the Best Vodka — 2017. At the competition, the products of Permalko JSC received high honors.
Gradus Premium Vodka by Permalko JSC won the main prize of the contest, Grand Prix, in Premium category of the Best Vodka — 2017.
The Best Vodka contest first took place in 2008 and since then has earned the reputation of an independent and just competition for spirit brands.
The judges don’t know the names of the products, their origin and trademarks, therefore they evaluate the drinks impartially.
Only brave producers take part in the competition,” – says deputy chairman of taste panel of the contest, PhD in Engineering, Irina Abramova. “Since the samples are only assessed according to their organoleptic properties and the requirements to producers are very high”. Despite constant increase of the requirements to the participating distilleries, our experts noted high level of the drinks provided for the competition this year. Every sample was assessed by the judges according to certain characteristics. The maximum score was 10.
By the way, the highest honor is only given to the brands which have won gold for three years in a row. At the end of the contest, the drinks which won prizes would be given places of honor at the Museum of the History of vodka in Kremlin in Izmailovo (Moscow) and would be on display for a year.
Gradus Black Vodka won a gold medal in Premium category.
We are proud to confirm once again our status of one of the leaders in premium segment. It became a good tradition of our company!
