New Products: Akvinta Vodka
Akvinta Vodka is now available in New York, New Jersey and California, marking the Mediterranean vodka’s first expansion outside of Europe. The certified organic and kosher vodka is triple distilled and filtered through a patented quintuple filtration process, made up of five natural filters: birch charcoal, marble, silver, gold and platinum. Akvinta emits a light but sweet lemon citrus fragrance, has a slight peppery taste and a creamy finish.
