New York, NY, April 28, 2017 (Newswire.com) - For the fourth consecutive year, the Global Spirits brand portfolio scored high honors at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America [WSWA] Annual Convention – its 74th – for its vodka brands LEAF Organic and Khortytsa.
At this year’s event, LEAF Vodka — made from Rocky Mountain Mineral Water and Khortytsa De Luxe Vodka — received Gold medals. This is the second medal for Khortytsa De Luxe and the third for LEAF Rocky Mountain from this prestigious annual event.
LEAF Vodka Made with Alaskan Glacial Water also received a medal for the fourth consecutive year in a row, as did Khortytsa Platinum, which received its second award in less than 3 years."Each year, since we first participated in WSWA, our presence at the event has grown. Back in 2014, we had only one item in our portfolio — LEAF Vodka — and limited distribution. Our ability to host a large suite and visit with distributors from all over the country was a testament to how far we've come in the industry since that time."
Each product had to receive a unanimous individual ranking by the spirits panel in a blind judging competition for this recognition. Judges were hand-selected by The Tasting Panel Magazine.
“Each year, since we first participated in WSWA, our presence at the event has grown,” states Maxim Dubossarsky, CEO, Global Spirits USA. “Back in 2014, we had only one item in our portfolio – LEAF Vodka – and limited distribution. Our ability to host a large suite and visit with distributors from all over the country was a testament to how far we’ve come in the industry since that time.”
Dubossarsky notes that the company continues to expand its distribution footprint in response to growing interest at the wholesale and retail levels. “With an expanded sales team, new products in the pipeline and a growing roster of distributors, we are poised for even greater growth.”
