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.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
