Beluga is a noble Russian vodka that is famous worldwide. Thanks to its aristocratic origins and idyllic quality, Beluga has claimed its rightful place in the global culture of spirit satisfaction and consumption. To create Beluga the most of noble Russian Vodkas, we chose The Mariinsky Distillery. The Mariinsky Distillery was established in 1900 in the heart of Siberia in one of the most environmentally clean and tranquil areas of Russia. We believe that true Russian vodka can only be produced exclusively in Russia. Today, the Mariinsky Distillery is considered in the industry to be the nation-wide leader, thanks to its cutting-edge equipment and advanced quality control systems at every stage of production. Its unique geographical position gives additional benefits to Beluga’s taste. The foremost of which is the clean and pure water from Siberian artesian wells. Water is the key component in the production of Beluga vodka, accounting for 60% of its unique formula. It comes from 300-meter deep artesian wells in the bedrock of Siberia. Another principal component in the Beluga recipe is a special malt spirit, rarely found today in regular vodka, mainly due to its cost and the labor-intensive production technologies it requires. Yet, there’s another important secret in Beluga’s recipe: its production cycle includes a final, conclusive phase – maturation. Depending on vodka’s grade it may last from one to three months. We were proud to craft the collector’s line of Beluga Transatlantic Racing in honor of The Russian Yachting Team, which has achieved brilliant victories at a number of prestigious competitions in the Mediterranean and Atlantic Regattas. The recipe of this kind of Beluga differs from other vodkas in the Beluga constellation: In the process of filtration, the spirit passes through natural cotton. The resting period is increased to 45 days, making its taste even more delicate. Such treatment results in a fresh aftertaste and the elite smoothness of Beluga Transatlantic Racing. The bottle’s design clearly reflects marine motifs: The label features a golden anchor on a deep navy-blue background. There is also a little Beluga fish on the bottle’s neck in shiny gold.
Beluga Transatlantic Racing, on the contrary, has a fresher aftertaste, which is reached by adding barley malt infusion. Another difference is additional filtration through natural cotton. Its distinctive character is present in the fresh and exceptional aroma thanks to its masterful blending.
