The distillery "Khortytsya" (the name in the original sounds like "Khortytsya") produces not only strong distillates, tinctures and liquors, but also juices and soft drinks. This plant is the leader of the Ukrainian market. Its products are supplied, despite tense political relations, and on the shelves of Russian stores. In this article, the focus of our attention will be vodka "Khortytsya". By popularity in the post-Soviet countries among Ukrainian alcohol, it shares the second place with such a famous brand as Nemiroff. And the palm of the championship holds the "Bread gift". But, you see, the second place is also very honorable. Let's look at the types of vodka, which is called "Khortytsya", and study the reviews about them.
A bit of history
The distillery "Khortitsa" was built in 2003 literally from scratch. Since the location of production capacity was Zaporozhye region, it was not necessary to determine the name for the new brand for a long time. The island of Khortytsia, which is in the middle of the Dnieper, was the location of the Cossack Sich. Association with the freedom-loving republic and the removal of the brave led to the success of the drink. But not only the name won the vodka "Khortytsya" popularity with the Ukrainian consumer. High quality raw materials, impeccable cleaning, beautiful gift bottle and low price were the main components of success. Already in 2005, "Khortytsya" entered the top ten leading producers of vodka in the world. The total output is seventeen million decalitres, and vodka - 7.5 million annually. The company is also a distributor, exporting Khortitsa to seventy countries of the world. This vodka and the hearts of Russian consumers have won.
Distinctive features of vodka "Khortytsya"
Production facilities of the distillery are not in vain located in the countryside, away from the metropolis of Zaporozhye. Being in an ecologically clean region guarantees that no harmful impurities will enter the drink. For vodka "Khortytsya" use only selected wheat grain and artesian water. In addition, the drink passes a multi-stage purification system. But deep filtration is not all that distinguishes vodka "Khortitsa" from such high-quality distillates. To protect its products from counterfeits and, thus, loss of confidence on the part of consumers, the plant paid considerable attention to the packaging of the drink. A faceted bottle with easily recognizable outlines has several levels of protection against counterfeit.
How to distinguish the original from forgery
Vodka "Khortytsya" has a branded cap with a dispenser. On it a special hologram is made of special paper, which is destroyed at the first opening. The label of vodka is protected from counterfeits, as well as a monetary banknote. With the help of micro-holographic technology, the company's miniature logos are printed on its entire surface. Marking on the bottle is done with a laser. A special feature of vodka is an iridescent hologram made using modern dot-mix technology. If you rotate a bottle of vodka in your hands, you can see a three-dimensional volumetric image. But the reviews say that craftsmen can bypass these degrees of protection, especially if you buy vodka not in the supermarket, where you can carefully consider the product, but in small shops. Therefore, the purchase of "Khortitsa" is recommended in proven places of sale of alcohol.
Kinds of vodka
Like Nemiroff, the brand is known for producing vodka not only of classical type, but also with taste tones. In general, the whole range of such products can be divided into three lines. The first is the so-called classical vodka "Khortytsya". Reviews say that this line is designed for a mass buyer. Nevertheless, a high degree of protection is also observed here, despite the democratic price of the product. This line includes such "Khortytsy": "Classical", "Absolute" and Ice. The concern also produces "special" vodkas. Some of them differ little from classical ones - for example, "Khortytsya Silver coolness", where the taste is set off by refreshing mint, or "Golden cedar" with juicy notes of nuts. But there are also really special vodka. These include the truly Ukrainian "gorilka" "Pepper with honey", as well as "Khortitsa Prunes". And, finally, the third line includes elite vodka. These are "Premium", "De Luxe", "Platinum". The concern constantly releases new products to the market. So, the hit of the sixteenth year was "Wheat Tear".
Vodka "Khortitsa Premium"
Comments of Russian consumers call this product the best one presented by the concern in Russia. Of course, the price of "Premium" classifies vodka in the category of "drinks for a special occasion" or "as a gift." But it should be noted that the product goes through customs, which affects the cost. Do not forget that vodka belongs to the third line - luxury drinks. For its production, as indicated on the label, a special premium "Premium" is used. And in it, and even in many times purified artesian water, lies the secret of the mild taste that distinguishes this vodka "Khortytsya". Reviews recommend drinking it to the best of chilled, for a variety of snacks. The head from it does not hurt in the morning and the state of health is excellent. It is easy to drink and does not sore throat. There is no sharp smell. Very soft aftertaste.
Vodka "Khortytsia Wheat Tear"
This novelty, born in the very end of 2015, is still unknown to the Russian consumer. But in Ukraine its glory is already booming. Merit in the production of vodka belongs not so much to the Khortytsa concern as to the state enterprise Ukrspirt. It was he who invented the technology of maximum purification. Alcohol "Wheat Tear" is released from any impurities - not only harmful, but also affecting taste. These are fusel oils, methanol, aldehydes, ethers. In alcohol, only the grain of choice wheat was combined and crystal-clear water, like a tear. All the produced volume of this elite product is purchased by the Khortytsa concern for the release of the same name vodka. And, given the high standards of the plant, the quality of the product is beyond praise. Vodka "Khortytsya Wheat Tear" (photo shows bottles with medals) is suitable for both pure consumption and for numerous alcoholic cocktails.
