Elit by Stolichnaya is launching a new vodka The Himalayan Edition as part of their pristine water series. Stolichnaya has taken great care to handcraft the elit pristine water series, a unique vodka of unprecedented perfection and exclusivity for the most discerning palate. The quest to find the world’s most pristine water sources has led the company to the Langtang National Park in the heart of the Himalayas.
The water used for the first edition of the series has been sourced from the heart of the Himalayan Mountain Range. There, it is formed from the perpetual melting of snow and journeys through countless layers of rock to an internal reservoir. This water, of unparalleled quality, is then combined with the finest winter wheat harvested from the Tambov region in Russia. Situated alongside the all-natural Kershinskoye water reservoir, this wheat is completely free from impurities.
After going to incredible lengths to source the purest water, grow the highest-quality grain and distill it into the world’s most precious vodka, it could only be housed in a one-of-a-kind handcrafted bottle.
The elit pristine water series bottle is made from the finest, hand-blown, superior-quality Bohemian glass available, which is sealed with the exquisite gold-plated decorative ice pick. Each bottle is housed in an individually numbered hand-made, walnut carved chest. The unique character of the Himalayan Edition comes from the provenance of its water and grain, together with its distinctive distillation process and packaging of unparalleled quality.
The elit pristine water series from Stolichnaya is 40% ABV (80 proof), retailing at $3,000.00 per limited-edition bottle. Stolichnaya will be revealing a new water source and the next edition in 2012.Pin It
