SPELTA®
The small-batch organic dry vodka

 

SPELTA® is the first Russian vodka distilled from 100% organic spelt. It is the first vodka built to express the true essence of it provenance. The raw ingredient spelt packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals and essential organic compounds that other cereals and forms of wheat don’t contain.

 

SPELTA® is an unsweetened vodka, so “dry vodka” is another defining USP of its character. No botanicals with sweeting properties, no sugar or honey added post distillation.

 

Our partner, local organic farmer, don’t use any artificial fertilizers and insecticides to grow spelt. Its certified to meet the European Union ecological standards and comply the production rules equal to Regulations (EC) 834/2007 and (EC) 889/2008 for manufacturing of organic goods.

Combination of artisanal craftsmanship and hi-tech equipment

SPELTA® is a result of an inspired work of R&D team of Saranskiy Distillers Company. The team has been developing the concept of Ultra-premium organic vodka to be recognized and savoured by connoisseurs.
Tatiana Veretekhina – Master Distiller at Saranskiy Distillers. Works in the company for over 10 years. Her expertise ensures balance, smoothness and incomparable excellence of SPELTA® organic vodka.
Combination of artisanal craftsmanship and hi-tech equipment brings the cherry on top to the Master Distiller’experience. It’s where the Harmony discovered.

“Every little detail” – she said, “is important when it comes to creation of perfect organic vodka. The most important thing, of course is excellent raw ingredients and full control over the technological process. It is also important to balance traditions and innovations, i.e. we use advanced Italian and German equipment. At the same time, we discarded the widespread modern technology of synthetic fermentation. We revived the natural malt fermentation process, which is unique to vodka production in Russia these days. The method is much higher in a cost and labor but it allows us to obtain smoother alcohol, which is crucial to vodka flavor and taste”.
