Serrallés USA and Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur recently announced a long-term, co-operating U.S. sales and marketing partnership.

It is handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY and uses more than 200 lbs. of fresh ginger per batch with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. The distillation process is said to be unique to the ginger category in that it contains only four ingredients: ginger, sugar, cane spirit and filtered water. At 44 Proof, Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur offers a distinct ginger expression.The liqueur is being rolled out in MA and NH this spring from M.S. Walker.

The Spirit(s) World – Gold Medal winner Russian Diamond gaining favor

Pure, clean, multi-faceted – the words could easily describe a gemstone, but in this instance, refer to Russian Diamond, the winner of the International Review of Spirits Competition’s gold medal for white vodkas for the second consecutive year this Fall.
The premium vodka is now available from DUN Beverage Partners, LLC of Sparta, NJ and distributed by M. S. Walker, Inc., Russian Diamond’s first strategic Distributor Partner, throughout MA, RI and in 2014, will be in NH, VT and ME.
Like the process of ‘faceting’ diamonds, this premium vodka undergoes 57 purification stages. Made with artesian water from Russian springs, the blend is enhanced with Siberian pine needles and nuts. At the recent competition, tasters described the flavors as reminiscent of pastry dough, sweet cream, and minerals, with excellent balance and structure.
As vodkas continue to grow in popularity, this unique offering is well deserving of a place at the bar, where it will raise the bar for vodka drinkers.
