Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery: Pioneer in farm-to-flask distilling

West Canada’s original craft distillery evolved in 2004 from the idea of making spirits from local fruits and grains. Today the portfolio includes more than 30 international award-winning products, from whisky to gin, vodka, brandy, aquavit, absinth and fruit liqueurs, produced at two locations. Whisky makes up more than half of the production of around 100,000 bottles a year.

CEO Tyler Dyck, President of the Craft Distiller’s Guild of British Columbia, has the goal of modernising the politics of spirits in Western Canada and to guarantee the authenticity of the distilleries so that distillers are rewarded when they produce products that reflect their local history – authentically farm-to-flask.

The passion, skill and creativity of three full-time distillers (Peter von Hahn, Chris Burke, Sonia Young) are behind the successful diversity of products.

To go with the classification of Master Class Distillery and World Class Distillery, there was double gold for Laird of Fintry Cask Strength, gold for Haskap Liqueur, Cherry Liqueur, Blueberry Liqueur, Absinthe TABOO, Laird of Fintry, Laird of Fintry Blue Label, BRBN and Rye Whisky. There was silver for Black Currant Liqueur, Aquavitus, Family Reserve Gin and Evolve Gin, and bronze for Reserve Vodka.

Luding Group: Vodka Tchaikovsky as a high-spirited homage to the famous composer

At the beginning of the 1990s, the modern distillery ‘Fortuna’ was launched in a green field in the south of Russia – in the Krasnodar region, a strip of land with spa resorts and health centres. The distillery has specialised in unusual products, in a region with a particularly green fingerprint. The vodka created in honour of the great Russian composer Tchaikovsky is special. The concept for this exceptional product is comparable with one of his musical scores: the work ‘Swan Lake’ served as an inspiration. Art enthusiasts can thus immerse themselves in the history of Russian estate life in the 19th century. The traditional white and blue colours underline the purity of this vodka.

The technical particularities span a wide quality-orientated spectrum: from the selected wheat, their own well water and the special treatment of the distillate with skimmed milk powder to the crystal-clear filtration with active birch coal. With so much perfectionism and monitoring of the individual production steps, the result is an especially gentle, animating and very typical vodka based on wheat. After the diluting of alcohol and pure distillate, the production process is continued with maturation in steel tanks. The aim is to ‘wed’ both ‘waters’, resulting in an especially harmonious vodka.

At the World Spirits Award 2022, Vodka Tchaikovsky was awarded double gold and honoured as the best vodka with the title ‘Spirit of the Year’.

Stock Polska – Prestige products with history

Polmos Lublin (known today as Stock Polska) was founded by the industrialist Emil Plage in Lublin in 1906 and was able to survive both world wars and the communist state leadership. The company was nationalised in 1948 and re-privatised in 2001. It traded on the Warsaw Stock Exchange until 2005 and was sold in 2006. The new owners, Oaktree Capital Management, purchased the spirits division from Eckes Stock in 2007 and thereby laid the foundations for the current Stock Spirits Group. The company has its headquarters in Luxembourg, its service centre in Great Britain and its production sites in the Czech Republic, Italy and Poland.

Stock dates back to the year 1884 when Lionello Stock founded a beverages business in Trieste. He purchased a distillery in 1920 in what is currently part of the Czech Republic with the aim of tapping into new markets. This was followed by distilleries, bottling plants and warehouses in Italy, Austria, Poland, Hungary and Yugoslavia. In the 1920s, Stock was one of the biggest companies of its kind in Europe.

After an absence of 70 years, Stock returned to Poland and began to manufacture at the historic site of Lublin, 150 kilometres south-east of Warsaw. Intensive investment led to the creation of the most modern distillery in Poland and a leadership position on the vodka market. Poland’s most popular flavoured vodka is produced here: Zoladkowa Gorzka.

Lots of Stock products are produced by traditional recipes. These classical brands appeal to connoisseurs all over the world. In return, work is constantly being done on innovations that correspond to modern tastes and new drinking cultures. Quality standards are constantly upheld in both areas, of course.

The quality of the products was recognised at the World Spirits Award with a gold medal for the Orkisz Spelt Vodka.
