Review: Khortytsa Platinum Vodka

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 14, 2012

According to the company website, the distillery uses only high quality grain spirits produced by Ukraine’s best factories for vodka manufacturing. Although the facility and the brand are relatively new, they have made a significant impact in the global market where today, Khortytsa is found in 85 countries worldwide.

The Khortytsa Brand was recently introduced into Canada, and I was recently asked by the local importer, Ukrainian Drinks Ltd. to provide a few reviews of some of their selected products. The first of these products which I sampled is the Khortytsa Platinum Vodka whose formulation was apparently developed using a special silver and platinum filtration technology.

Here is an excerpt from my review:

A lightly bitter aftertaste was present which reminded me of spruce bark and thyme. Despite this light bitterness, the vodka appears smooth and easy to sip. It is up to the individual sampling the Vodka whether that light bitter taste is appealing or not… “
