CEDAR GROVE, N.J., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- English Distillers has appointed Admiral Imports, Cedar Grove, New Jersey as the exclusive national importer for the U.S. for the most exciting new product to hit the Imported Vodka category. Russia, Poland, Sweden, Finland all claim it as their national drink. America uses it as their most requested cocktail. The Martini. Now an English vodka has reinvented Vodka and infused it with bubbles, like champagne to make it a "21st" Spirit. O2 Vodka is the world's first Sparkling Vodka and is produced by a special patented process. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070409/NYM086 ) Philip Maitland, an English inventor with a number of patents is the man behind the creation of O2. "Champagne is the number one toasting drink, Vodka the second. Being more of a Vodka drinker than a Champagne drinker, I wanted to combine the best of both and have a Sparkling Vodka." Maitland's great- great-grandfather left Russia to seek his fortune in England and his lasting legacy to his great grandson was that he inherit an appreciation of great Vodka and the love of invention. O2 Vodka is British, and whilst people think of other countries being more associated with Vodka than Britain, British Gin and Scottish Whisky (starts life as a pure spirit before aging in barrels) are world famous. Britain produces some of the finest Vodka in the world, which is soon to be recognized in its own right. It took two years of research and development to create Sparkling Vodka. The world's first and only sparkling vodka. The process combines 21st century technology and traditional craftsmanship. Batch produced in 100-year-old copper stills, the best English wheat and barley, and pure spring water, which is all filtered for perfect purity. Each batch is inspected and tested for taste and quality before being approved for bottling. The resulting Vodka is of exceptional quality and smoothness that gently sparkles on the tongue, lightens your mood and stirs the senses. It's sexy, sophisticated and creates a sense of fun, celebration and occasion. The bottles are of the finest heavy crystal glass to insure that nothing interacts with the special taste and quality of the Vodka O2. This vodka is available in two strengths and offers exceptional smoothness, 80 proof and 94 proof. Philip Maitland formed International English Distillers Ltd. to produce the Vodka and has added a new chapter to the history of Vodka, making all other Vodkas seeming a little lacking. "If you are the best, you sparkle." Says Maitland. "When you see a product like 02 Imported Vodka come along with such an unique package and concept, you just have to stop and listen. That is what we did and that is why we are proud to add this unique product to the Admiral Imports portfolio", says Michael Zeiger, President of Admiral Imports.
