The popularity of this outstanding vodka must be attributed to the attention to detail and quality of its ingredients. Five Lakes vodka is made at only one location in Siberia, at Omskvinprom distillery. The spirit that is used in the making of Five Lakes Vodka is made from 100% grain, which is comprised of wheat and rye. This is very traditional in the making of Russian vodka; the results of which speaks for itself, quality vodka accepted the world over.
The water that is used in this process is equally important. Only pure water from the pristine taiga lakes finds its way into Five Lakes Vodka. The unique waters come from the Five Lakes of Siberia: Linevo, Danilovo, Urmannoe, Shaitan, and Potaennoe. The waters are very pure and contain silver. It is said that these waters have curative properties. The people call it "the life giving waters". To maintain the natural composition of this water it undergoes a mild purification before being mixed precisely to the purest "Luxe" alcohol.
Omskvinprom controls every step of the manufacture of the vodka. They produce their own spirits, produce their own water, and do their own bottling. This increases the quality control in producing the best vodkas. They use advanced technologies of water and spirit production. These self-made ingredients go through many different stages to become unique, smooth-tasting vodka. It goes through 7 stages of filtration and 8 stages of distillation. The vodka is then chilled for 48 hrs before a final filtering and then it is bottled. It is now ready for the world marketplace, including the new Canadian market.
Established in 2012, Western Shore Trading Ltd. is a Canadian import company specializing in the import of quality Siberian vodkas. They currently service the British Columbia beverage and hospitality sectors, with plans for future expansion into the neighboring provinces.
