New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Stolichnaya’s highly rated “elit by Stolichnaya” vodka comes in a new limited edition this winter. The Himalayan Edition, introduced on December 13, is the first of the elit Pristine Water Series, a collection that will source the most pure of waters from around the globe to craft the ultimate white spirit. Only 300 bottles of this precious first edition are available for purchase worldwide, at $3,000 a bottle.
For The Himalayan Edition, water from the Langtang National Park in the heart of the Himalayas was combined with the finest winter wheat harvested in the Tambov region of Russia. Free of impurities and imperfections, the crystal-clear elixir is exceptionally clean and neutral on the nose, engaging with fresh, subtle aromas of citrus and fruit blossoms. The taste is lively, and remarkably clean—the perfect set up for a long and elegant, velvety smooth finish.
This exclusive, carefully crafted beverage is housed in a one-of-a-kind bottle hand-blown from Bohemian glass and nestled in a handmade walnut chest. The bottle comes complete with an exquisite gold-plated decorative ice pick, and the knowledge that Stolichnaya is contributing to Oceana—an organization dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans—in honor of its Himalayan release.
“With the launch of this first-of-its-kind, limited edition series, elit by Stolichnaya continues to raise the bar when it comes to providing superior quality, perfection, and taste,” remarked Val Mendeleev, CEO of SPI Group. “As a leader in the spirits industry, this is our way of providing our clients with exciting opportunities to treat their discerning taste buds.”
