Taunton, Mass., (July 21, 2020)– The world’s first premium vodka made from whey, not grain, VDKA 6100 is partnering with Vision Wine & Spirits on a nationwide distribution agreement. After 5 years of hard work in the American market, VDKA 6100 is already distributed in 19 states, which include NY, NJ, FL, CA, IL, NV and TN.
VDKA 6100 is a distinctive, smooth and elegant vodka, produced from seasonal cow’s whey in Reporoa, near Lake Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand. The whey is fermented using a unique strain of yeast from Ireland that has been hand-cultivated in Reporoa for over 30 years. Distilled just three times (which is all that is needed due to the purity of the ingredients) and then filtered through carbon, before being blended with pure New Zealand natural spring water.
“VDKA 6100 views this new partnership as an opportunity to gain national distribution while mitigating the massive risk that goes into taking on new markets alone,” said John Castiglione, Director – The Americas.
VDKA 6100 is an award-winning vodka, most notable, the 5 Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Science. VDKA 6100 is 40% alc/vol (80% proof). VDKA 6100 is gluten free, sugar free, lactose free and free from chemical additives.
The brand’s founder, Julian Moss, also established a medical PPE company, called Blue Mirror, which has been crucial during this time of need. Blue Mirror supplies healthcare equipment such as gloves, N95 respirators, disposable surgical and protective masks and hand sanitizer.
Vision Wine & Spirits, LLC is a division of the Martignetti Companies, the 7th largest distributor in the United States, and an independent family-owned business since 1908.
