Stolichnaya releases NZ edition of super-premium Elit

31 October, 2013

Stolichnaya has released a New Zealand edition of its super-premium Elit Pristine Water Series.

Just 300 bottles have been produced, of which 30 will be on sale in the UK, in Harrods.

The vodka is made with water from New Zealandís famous Blue Spring, where water which is filtered through pumice stones in the Mamaku mountains runs blue.

The water is blended with Alpha Spirit made in Latviaís Latvijas Balzams distillery and freeze-filtered at -18ļC.

It is packed in a crystal bottle with a leather cuff designed by French crystal studio Royale de Champagne, in a case made from New Zealandís prehistoric kauri wood.

Elit is 40% abv and will retail for £2,500 per bottle.
