Stolichnaya launches limited edition to super premium Elit series

Published:  31 October, 2013

Maxxium distributed Stolichnaya has launched the second luxury limited edition to its Elit pristine water series, exclusively into Harrods.

The New Zealand Edition comprises of 300 bottles worldwide with just 30 for the United Kingdom and a price tag of £2,500  (40% ABV). 

Stolichnaya has continued its partnership with Oceana, the largest international organisation working solely to protect the world's oceans. After travelling to the Himalayas to source water for the first edition the second edition water comes from New Zealand's Blue Spring one of the purest water sources in the world. 

It is then combined with single-batch Alpha Spirit and the finest raw ingredients at its Latvijas Balzams distillery in Latvia, which has produced and bottled Stolichnaya vodkas for more than 65 years.

Stolichnaya has also commissioned Royale de Champagne, the 135-year-old French crystal studio to handcraft a one-of-a-kind crystal bottle and a case crafted from rare ancient Kauri wood native to New Zealand.

Elit is set apart from all other vodkas, through the use of Alpha spirit exclusively, which is the highest grade of spirit recognised by the Russian authorities and a freeze-out filtration process at - 18?C inspired by the Russian tradition of leaving casks outside in plummeting winter conditions which ensures the finest impurities are captured and removed, leaving a pure liquid charged with character.
