  • High Stick Vodka Takes Double Gold & Best in Show (7/29/2016)

    EDMONTON, Alta. — High Stick Vodka, one of Canada’s newest players in the world of premium vodkas,
    has captured a Double Gold and was named the best vodka in the show in the 2016 Wine & Spirits
    Wholesalers of America Spirits Tasting Competition.
    Awarded in April at the WSWA’s annual convention in Las
    Vegas, where 353 spirits were tasted across the entire
    competition, High Stick Vodka was voted best of the 54 vodkas
    rated by the judging panel, with a special notation for the buzz
    created by the unique packaging of High Stick Vodka, a glass
    bottle in the shape of a hockey stick.
    “On the international stage, Canadians have gotten used to a
    double gold in hockey with the men’s and women’s teams
    consistently reaching the top of the podium in the Winter
    Olympics,” says Illarion Shulakewych, President of High Stick
    Vodka. “We are proud to have achieved the same distinction
    with High Stick Vodka, a premium vodka proudly made with
    premium Canadian ingredients.”
    High Stick Vodka is distilled and bottled in the heart of British
    Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Using the finest local grains and
    the purest mountain water to make one of the best vodka’s on the market, the distillation process uses an
    18 bubble plate copper still to ensure all impurities are filtered out and create the highest quality spirit.
    Artesian water is mixed with utmost precision to ensure a crisp and clean Vodka.
    Only finest and most Canadian bottle can contain this premium vodka. In a tribute to Canada’s game, High
    Stick Vodka comes in a hand-blown glass hockey stick that stands out above the rest.
    “A Canadian bar shelf is incomplete without High Stick Vodka as the centrepiece it deserve to be,” says
    It is the second year in a row that High Stick Vodka has achieved a Double Gold at the WSWA Spirits
    Tasting Competition.
