Scottsdale-based company introduces Vektor Vodka
Scottsdale, Ariz. - Native Spirits Limited announces its new ultra-premium, award-winning Russian vodka, Vektor Vodka, after debuting its line in Arizona earlier this year. Vektor Vodka is scheduled to be released in markets nationwide in 2013 by the Scottsdale based company.
In its first two spirits competitions, Vektor Vodka has already been awarded the Double Gold Medal winner at the Wine and Spirit Wholesalers of America (WSWA) 61st Annual Conference 2012 Spirits Competition in Las Vegas. It was also awarded 92 points and “Highly Recommended” at the 2012 Ultimate Spirits Challenge in New York City.
“We are excited about launching Vektor ultra-premium Russian vodka in our home market of Arizona. The response from resorts, restaurants, retail locations, and even our distributor, has been amazingly positive,” said Dr. Mark S. Williams, founder of Native Spirits Limited and brand owner of Vektor Vodka. “We have assembled the best people in the business, Fisher for marketing, Nick Verges, a 30+ year veteran in the distribution business, and most recently Steve LeVine Entertainment and Public Relations for promotions and public relations. It truly is an overnight success story that only took 5 years.”
The origin of the name, Vektor Vodka, comes from Williams’ past as a military and commercial pilot, incorporating a flight theme in the vodka line’s advertising campaign including its slogan, “Plot Your Night’s Course.”
Distilled seven times, Vektor Vodka is handcrafted, distilled, and bottled in Samara by Russia’s oldest and most distinguished distillery. The Samara distillery “Rodnik” has been awarded over 300 medals for taste of its vodkas. Vektor Vodka’s signature drinks all pay homage to the Samara distillery and Russian heritage with its Russian themed recipes.
Formulated using an original 15th century recipe, Vektor Vodka is distilled from the finest Russian winter wheat, giving it an unparalleled smoothness and refined finish. Birchwood filtration and the finest Lux class spirit gives Vektor its exquisite smoothness, and unmatched clarity, texture, and luminescence, allowing it to be enjoyed neat, or allowing it to take on the qualities of whatever mixer it is combined with.
“I think people will be surprised at how luxuriously smooth the vodka is,” said Williams.
The signature, faceted super flint cut glass bottle denotes prestige, is decorated in gold enamel with the patented bold Vektor “V” and includes an embossed foil shoulder label covering a premium cork cap. Vektor Vodka can be purchased at many fine restaurants, resorts and retailers.
Vektor Vodka will host its Arizona industry launch this month, followed by its official launch party to the public. More details to be announced soon.
