For each of the editions, Stolichnaya’s master craftsmen scoured the world for the most exquisite water sources from which to craft the ultimate limited-edition vodka. This year, they trekked to the crystal clear waters of Colico Lake in the La Araucanía Region of Chile, to a natural spring flowing from the foothills of the Andes Mountains. This water was added to elit’s meticulously crafted Russian Alpha Spirit to create the final vodka in this rare series.
This limited edition vodka comes in a hand-cut crystal bottle by Glencairn Crystal, one of the world’s leading crystal houses, designed to refract light and enhance the liquid’s clarity. Every exquisite bottle is sealed with a silver medallion overlaid with gold and crowned with a ruby depicting the elit by Stolichnaya flame. The bottle is then nestled in a sustainably sourced, Chilean Black Cherry wood case that is lined with leather and embellished with an indigenous pattern local to Colico Lake.
Priced at €3,000 ($3,750) per limited edition bottle,40% ABV (80 proof) the Andean edition is available for purchase beginning Fall 2014.
