I am excited to share a new adventure that I am just about to embark on, which is quite different from anything that I've done in the past as a writer!
I will be working with the exclusive representatives of a manufacturer of high quality Russian vodka, comparable to well-known Soviet brand, Stolichnaya (aka Stoli) ... only our vodka has not yet exported to the USA :)
Well, maybe, it's not such a radical departure... After all, some years ago, I did work with an award-winning food and wine magazine, Deli Business and was fortunate to represent the publication in food shows around the United States, while sampling the delicacies that I reviewed.
But, back to new gig, at hand. I will also be representing a high-quality sparkling wine, that was created by the French in the 1800s, and back in the day, only enjoyed by noblemen and royalty!
Both the vodka and sparkling wine (featuring different varieties under the same brand) are already well-established in their local markets --so, no gamble, there-- but, to date, they have not been introduced to America.
Also, as serious drinkers know, where there is alcohol, water should be close at hand. Which is why there is also (big and small bottles of) mineral water that we will be representing, from natural springs in the mountains of Eastern Europe. In the case of water, we don't need a distributor, so I can go straight to the retailers.
As I write this, I've already begun to approach distributors :) Wish me luck and, please, feel free to share your own experiences-- ranging from what you like about vodka and wine or industry tips?
Contrary to popular theory, what’s inside the fire water (aka vodka) is rarely potatoes 🥔 & mostlly ethanol distilled from wheat 🌾 , rye oor corn 🌽 & dilutted with water. If you want to learn more how it’s made, watch this:
