Zirkova Premium Vodka brings home the gold

Gold medals aren't just for athletes anymore, and locally owned Zirkova Premium Vodka is the proof. Placed up against 1,100 entries produced by 61 countries at the San Francisco World Spirits Competiton, winning the highly coveted gold medal at the prestigious competition was not an easy feat. Created by couple John Vellinga and Katherine Koszarny, owners of Oakville-based Multiculture Bevco, Zirkova Premium Vodka is produced in the Cherkasy region of Ukraine, the birthplace of vodka. Using quality, centre-cut rye and wheat spirits, with pure artesian mineral water, the vodka is quadruple distilled from the highest quality spirits, slow filtered through over two tons of birch charcoal, and produced in the natural method, with zero additives.
