Exactly one year after its market launch, the newcomer 9 MILE Vodka from Berlin-based Granite Rock Distillery GmbH has received its fifth award. In the renowned competition “Meininger’s International Spirit Award ISW 2020”, the premium vodka once again won gold.
9 MILE Vodka already received four more awards over the last year: At the prestigious Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Competition (HKIWSC) and the 7th Annual Berlin International Spirits Competition, the premium vodka was honoured, and won gold medals at the Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards and the Asia International Spirits Competition.
This shows that 9 MILE is one of the best vodkas on the international scene. For 17 years, the competition of the Meininger publishing house has made it its business to provide both distillers and producers with objective, neutral, expert and detailed feedback on the products. In addition, the results of the competition serve the consumers as a reliable quality orientation in their purchasing decisions. The unique tasting system developed for this purpose evaluates and describes each spirit individually, thus enabling direct comparison with other products and providing detailed feedback to the producers.
9 MILE Vodka was able to convince the jury in all categories with at least four out of five stars – especially the visual clarity as well as the purity of taste and the finish were positively highlighted in the evaluation.
“On a total of 4 days this year, our almost 50 spirits experts tasted their way through the great and diverse world of spirits to finally award only the best with a medal. Each category, be it fine fruit brandies, peaty whisk(e)ys, aged wine and marc brandies, herbal and fruit liqueurs or the strong and diverse world of gin, which has been around for years, was incredibly well represented,” said tasting director Christian Wolf, drawing a first conclusion. The knowledgeable, international jury of experts – consisting of master distillers, retailers, trade journalists, scientists and spirit experts from the catering trade or the industry – evaluated each spirit based on 20 individual attributes.
This premium vodka is made from high-quality ingredients, crystal-clear water, and carefully selected grain varieties. 9 MILE VODKA flows through granite rock during the manufacturing process, a unique filtration method which gives the 37.5% ABV drink its mild, authentic taste. Granite Rock Filtrated: a production process developed specially by MBG to ensure the absolute purity of its new vodka.
