The New Year is approaching and you may notice that all grocery stores are filled with different goodies and alcoholic beverages to help us say farewell to the 2008 year and to welcome the arrival of the new year of 2009. If you live in New York you can buy a new brand of vodka that is manufactured in Slovakia. This Vodka has won two prizes: for its appearance, but also for its unique flavor. The vodka is called Double Cross Luxury Vodka and it is the only Slovak vodka that has entered the United States markets.

When the American entrepreneurs were looking for a producer of this vodka they intended to find somebody in Eastern Europe. They looked in Poland and the Czech Republic, but they chose the Slovak Republic. Here they met Dr. John Krak, who was a master of distillation. They decided to collaborate with him on the proposal for a new product, which was to be sold around the world.

So why is this product so interesting? It is made with spring water from the foothills of the Vysoke Tatry mountains drawn from aquifers located 200-feet below ground level. A 100% organic winter wheat is used as a raw material. Vodka is then distilled 7 times and filtered 7 times through a diamond dust. The final product has 40% alcohol by volume and flavors of white pepper and a lemon zest.

Just the fact that the vodka is filtered through diamonds is very attractive, but when you see its bottle, it will attract you even more for a taste. The bottle is 12 inches high (30.5 cm) and contains 750 ml of this luxurious liquid. Moreover, the bottle is square with a double cross logo and verses of Slovak poets etched into the glass. The double cross logo is  derived from the Slovakian flag and coat of arms.

Double Cross Luxury Vodka was awarded the Gold Medal for Packaging/Design and taste at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It is the only vodka to ever receive both of these prizes together. It is sold exclusively through the companies: Southern Wine & Spirits of New York and Allied Beverage Group in New Jersey. It is not sold in Slovakia or any part of Europe. You can purchase it in restaurants, clubs, bars and retail outlets in New York and New Jersey for $49.99. For more information, please see the producer’s website HERE.
