Woodman’s Market was founded in 1919 by John Daniel Woodman, as a local, family-owned enterprise. The business was operated by four generations of family, with opportunity passed down from one Woodman to the next, until 1998 when Woodman’s became an employee-owned company. Today, Woodman’s has over 16 mega-store locations and is solely focused on providing the widest variety of grocery items at the best prices.

Ukraine’s famed Khortytsa (KHOR) Distillery is located near Khortytsa Island. This ancient island’s history dates back thousands of years and reaches the roots of civilization. It is considered a sacred place in Ukraine and is one of the country’s seven wonders. 

Built in 2003, the Khortytsa Distillery is among the world’s finest distilleries. It uses a local organic filter containing schungite (a unique natural mineral) which allows it to get as close as possible to the structure of natural water.  The filtration process is further enhanced with special birch and alder-tree charcoal and quartz sand sourced near the famous Ural Mountains.

Khortytsa Platinum Vodka, which is the most popular item in the line, retails for under $13 per 750-ml.

LEAF believes vodka’s main ingredient, water, is what truly defines the spirit.  LEAF Organic Vodka is sourced from unique waters around the country. One variety is made from Alaskan Glacial water, which lends a pure, smooth taste with a hint of sweetness. The other, made from Rocky Mountain mineral water, provides richness and complexity, offering a warm and savory impression. The water sources give LEAF Vodkas their signature tastes.

The packaging for LEAF Vodka is designed with the intention to have the contour of a leaf, accentuating the brand and giving it a premium look. With a recommended shelf price of $18.99 for 750-ml — and Certified USDA Organic — LEAF Vodka is well positioned within the dynamic and growing vodka category.
