Russia’s super-premium vodka has launched in South Africa!
Beluga Vodka is distilled in the small batches in the Mariinski Distillery in remote Siberia and is made using centuries-old traditional Russian methods. Needless to say, it works – brilliantly! Your night out just got a whole lot better.
Walk up to the bar and order a Beluga Vodka on the rocks and you’ll be the most interesting person at the party. Guaranteed. As you’ve probably guessed, we’re over the moon that it’s finally available on South African soil.
Beluga’s crisp character is made using a gentle, au-natural fermentation process using malt spirit that is very rarely used in vodka anymore. Different natural ingredient infusions are blended with water sourced from deep Siberian artesian wells. It’s then delicately washed quartz sand, triple-filtered through graphite columns, and then allowed to slow percolate through quartz sand again. Then it’s left to rest for up to 3 months to mature, leaving you with a luxurious soft, smooth vodka.
Did we mention that each bottle is adorned with a hand-fitted Beluga fish – the source of the finest caviar, and long considered by Russians to be the supreme accompaniment for Beluga Vodka. The bottles are in a word – sublime!
Make your very own Beluga New Years Savory Tini:
2 measures of Beluga Noble ¼ measure of Olive juice
¼ measure of Cocktail onion juice ¼ measure of Pepperoncini juice
Stir ingredients over ice, strain into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a cocktail onion pinned on the cocktail stick.
Party touch: Once you strained your cocktail into a glass, add a tiny spoonful of black caviar, stir gently with your cocktail stick & onion.
