the care and attention our people take to make the best spirits we can every day.

Radouga Distilleries, located in Blaine Lake, SK, is proud to announce their Gold Medal win at the recent New York World Wine and Spirits Competition (http://www.nyworldwineandspiritscompetition.com) held August 24th &25th, 2016.

Provincial Vodka is the company's flagship product, created by distillery founder, Paul Riben. The word vodka is a combination of voda, the Russian word for water (diminutives are a Russian specialty) and wòdka in Polish, both of which make it “little water.” The distillery, currently a craft-distillery, uses water from an inter-glacier aquifer along with grains grown by the distillery to create a unique smooth, clean flavor that had a definite impact on the judges.

“I'd love to take credit for all of it,” says founder Paul Riben, "but it really is a combination of knowing the ingredients that the product is made of, being fortunate enough to have a water source that really is as rare as can be found in nature, and the care and attention our people take to make the best spirits we can every day."

The technical vodka profile is that good vodka will have a creamy, sweet or grainy odor, a crystalline lustre, an internal energy, and should taste soft not hard, creamy not watery, smooth not rough.

The recognition at the NY World Wine and Spirits Competition with a Gold Medal showing builds on last years Silver Medal that Provincial Vodka earned. The company is confident that this level of acknowledgement will garner interest from not only the provinces who haven't yet had the pleasure of experiencing Provincial Vodka, but possible agencies and partners in the US and Europe as well.
