Canadian Radouga Distilleries received a silver medal for its Provincial Vodka in the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits competition held April 21st - 23rd 2017 in San Francisco, CA.

We’ll continue making quality vodka for as long as people want to experience quality vodka. It looks like we’ll be making vodka for a long, long time.

Radouga Distilleries, located in Blaine Lake, SK, is proud to announce their Silver Medal received at the recent San Francisco World Spirits Competition ( held April 21st to 23rd, 2017.

The silver medal earned was judged by an international panel of spirits experts in a double-blind tasting vote.

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.

“We’ll continue making quality vodka for as long as people want to experience quality vodka. By the response we are getting in the marketplace, it looks like we’ll be making Provincial Vodka for a long, long time.”

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

The product continues to gain recognition received from a gold medal win at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition in Fall 2016 and has translated into sales success. The company believes that a reputation for producing truly world class spirits will be further driven at international events like the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Now that the product is available in the US through Craft Spirits Cooperative of San Francisco, CA, the company is confident that this level of acknowledgement will garner interest from prospective distributors and agency partners across the US and elsewhere.
