We also represent an ultra-premium KAUFFMAN VODKA brand, which is distilled using a unique vintage technology. The goal of creating KAUFFMAN VODKA was to produce vodka that would be associated with an elite group of the finest spirits in the world and the object of national pride for Russia. Notwithstanding the fact that the production of KAUFFMAN VODKA was launched quite recently, in the year 2002 and has already become one of the most ambitious projects in Russian vodka history and has won the leading positions in the Russian market of ultra-premium spirits. The idea of creating the only vintage vodka in the world belongs to the CEO of WHITEHALL GROUP, Dr. Mark Kaoufman who is also Academician of the International Academy of Viticulture and Winemaking, Chevalier de L’Ordre du Merit Agricole (France), Comendador de la Orden Bernando O’Higgins and the author of series of books about wines.

In the beginning of 2005 WH IMPORT COMPANY, a constituting part of WHITEHALL GROUP, started its exportation program of KAUFFMAN VODKA. We are currently distributing in the UK, Germany, Switzerland. At the moment we are looking forward to expanding our distribution network all over the world and would be delighted to cooperate with professional importers/distributors and retailers who are interested in presenting the KAUFFMAN VODKA brand in the most prestigious restaurants, clubs, bars, shops, hotels.

We are currently seeking distribution in the following markets: North America, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, China, Duty Free areas, South Africa, Italy, Spain, France, Canaries Islands, Austria, Australia and New Zealand and others.

At present day Kauffman Vodka is the leading and the most titled ultra-premium vodka in Russia. That has been evidenced by numerous awards and accolades on the domestic and international levels:
International Spirits Challenge, London (May 2004):

In the white spirits category (vodka, gin, tequila, sake) the results of a blind tasting brought Kauffman Vodka two gold medals out of three, one silver and one bronze. It is an absolute score over the nine-year history of the International Spirits Challenge.
The Brand of the year/EFFIE 2004 (in the category of Luxury goods and services),
Grand Prix of Prodexpo 2003 and Prodexpo 2004 with the title The Best Russian Vodka.

 

 

The innovative approach to producing the only vintage vodka in the world involves using natural ingredients from a particular year, producing spirit and vodka itself at the same distillery at the same time and in limited quantity and monitoring every stage of the process.
To produce the finest vintage vodka we have decided on certain selection criteria:

  • The wheat of one single harvest is used only in the years when the finest wheat grains are identified;
  • Choice of regions varies from year to year depending on the quality of wheat production;
  • The unique design of the bottles is realized at Saint Gobaine facility in France, the bottles themselves are made of the equivalent quality to perfume glass;
  • Annual volume of the vintage vodka being produced is limited:
    KAUFFMAN LUXURY VINTAGE (1.0L) – 2 700 cases.
    KAUFFMAN SPECIAL SELECTED VINTAGE (0.7L) – 5 000 cases.

 

KAUFFMAN VODKA LUXURY VINTAGE (1.0L) – 40% abv
Made from the highest quality wheat of one single harvest only in the years when the finest wheat grains are identified. To guarantee high quality and retain continuity of style KAUFFMAN LUXURY is bottled only once per vintage with each bottle carrying a limited edition number.
It is an incredibly elegant, soft, subtle and delicate drink with feint perceptible scent of roasted rye bread crust and a light pleasant taste of mint.
KAUFFMAN SPECIAL SELECTED VINTAGE 2003 (0.7L) – 40% abv
