NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ukraine's famed Khortytsa (Hor-Ti-Tsa) Vodka has once again been recognized as one of the world's leading vodkas. According to the International Wine & Spirit Research (IWSR) Agency, Khortytsa is the largest vodka brand in Eastern Europe and the third largest vodka in the world in terms of sales.*
The brand remains the world's best-selling vodka from the Ukraine. A relative newcomer to the American market, Khortytsa is imported to the United States by Global Spirits USA. It retails for a suggested $14.99/per 750ml.
This is not the brand's first international distinction. In fact, it was named among the world's best distilleries at the 2014 New York International Spirits Competition (NYISC). Only 19 of the world's leading distilleries were recognized with this high honor.
"Khortytsa's consistent quality has allowed it to quickly gain ground among US consumers," said Jon Dubin, brand manager for Global Spirits USA, importers of Khortytsa.
The Khortytsa Distillery is located in the Ukrainian city of Zaporozhe near Khortytsa Island. This ancient island's history dates back thousands of years and reaches the roots of civilization. It is a sacred place in Ukraine -- considered to be the cradle and heart of Ukrainian national pride --and is one of the country's seven wonders.
Built in 2003, the Khortytsa Distillery is among the world's finest distilleries. It uses a local organic filter containing schungite (a unique natural mineral) which allows it to get as close as possible to the structure of natural water. The filtration process is further enhanced with special birch and alder-tree charcoal and quartz sand sourced near the famous Crystal Mountains of the Urals near Yekaterinburg, Russia.
Khortytsa is available in the US market in four varieties: Platinum, Honey Pepper, DeLuxe and ICE.
