With nearly 120 years of crafting spirits using pure artesian waters, Siberian-based Mariinsk Distillery in connection with Moscow-based Synergy Group, created the first batch of its ultra-premium Beluga Noble Vodka in 2002. As American interest in the rich, refined taste of the malt spirit grew, the first cases of Beluga Vodka were distributed in the United States in 2009 — and two years later, Beluga North America opened its doors in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
“When we gave birth to the first batch of 38 bottles of Beluga Noble Vodka in 2002, … customers were excited,” Beluga North America Chief Executive Officer Yegor Proskuryakov says. “… We use a malt spirit created through a natural process of fermentation of 100 percent wheat grain. It gives Beluga Vodka a uniquely fresh and wheat taste with a lasting finish.”
