Burgunderhof – A high-flying young entrepreneur

When Julica Renn gets in her helicopter and flies over the vineyards, it is clear that the former wine princess is no cliché. Together with her parents she runs the Burgunderhof, the first certified climate-neutral and ecologically run winery and hotel on Lake Constance. Since 2016, she has been the managing director and equal partner of the winery, the distillery and the hotel, and with her unusual start-up she has ushered in the generation change to the Burgunderhof with a flourish: MILE HIGH 69® is the name of the protected brand of her exclusive gin label. The laborious batch production is worth it, the end result is a very small edition of a great product – stylishly presented in aluminium containers with lots of 1920s flair: a homage to the pioneer times of the famous Dornier flying boats, which conquered the world from Lake Constance.

These days, Julica Renn conquers the gin world and benefits from over 300 years of family tradition. The standards are high – father Heiner Renn is known for fine fruit brandies and wines. His daughter has inherited his sense of business and fine sense of taste. In the secret recipe of her gin composition you will find juniper, sweet almond, lemon balm and elderflower, as well as kumquats, pine buds, lime and inflorescence from Müller-Thurgau. In the unfiltered distillation, the ethereal components are optimally released and the aromas elegantly highlighted – 19 natural botanicals and pure Lake Constance water promise a pleasurable experience, which Julica Renn presents impeccably: online, on Facebook and in the web shop.

At the World Spirits Award, the gin flew straight to gold.

PITÚ – A successful brand from Brazil

Brazil’s second largest sugarcane spirits brand is also the best-selling export brand. In Germany, PITÚ is the best-known brand in its class and is most commonly used as a spirit to make PITÚrinha, the premium Caipirinha with PITÚ. PITÚ has been imported directly from Brazil since as long ago as 1972, and is bottled in Germany. The brand owner for all European countries is the Anton Riemerschmid, Weinbrennerei & Likörfabrik GmbH & Co. KG company, which has been 100% owned by the Underberg Group since September 1996.

The Brazilian company Engarrafamento PITÚ Ltda. was founded in 1938 by two traditional families from the north-east of Brazil – Cândido Carneiro and Ferrer de Morais. The distillery is located in Vitória de Santo Antão in the federal state of Pernambuco. The company is now in its fourth and fifth generation of managers. The search for a trademark quickly led to the name ‘PITÚ’, the colloquial name for the freshwater crayfish, Macrobrachium carcinus, which can be found in a river close to the distillery.

At the World Spirits Award, PITÚ was awarded gold as usual.

Prevelon: Premium vodka by order of the Kremlin

Kremlin Premium Vodka was created as the official drink for all diplomatic receptions and banquets at the Kremlin and was intended as the hallmark of high-ranking events. The decision in favour of the most traditional Russian drink was unanimous. It was only produced on special order and in limited amounts. The first large batch of this ‘protocol’ vodka was ordered in February 1945 for the Yalta Conference. Kremlin Award Grand Premium came on the market in 2011 and is exported to 38 countries, and in many of them it holds the top position in the ultra-premium vodka category. Since 2016, the product range has included Kremlin Award Classic, which enjoys great popularity amongst all partners.

Two products have been added to the product range. Kremlin Award Organic is based on alcohol that is produced from the highest quality organic wheat, and on natural drinking water. The vodka passes through a multi-stage purification through pure birchwood charcoal. The alcohol for Kremlin Award Vintage is made from organic grains from the same harvest. The wheat grains are stored in a grain silo until they reach their physiological maturity in order to get a high-quality base product. The ‘luxury alcohol’ is then mixed with natural drinking water and, after purification, is granted a resting period. Production is limited to the year stated on the label.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for Kremlin Award Organic and Kremlin Award Vintage.

Edward Snell – Whisky from South Africa

Edward Snell founded a trading company in Durban in 1848, from which the oldest spirit company in South Africa developed over 160 years. Following an eventful history, the company is now once again in the hands of the family. Besides their own brands they also sell numerous local and international drink brands, mostly in various markets in Africa and the Middle East.

The wide range of products includes whisky, brandy, vodka, rum, gin, tequila and cognac. One outstanding label is Firstwatch Whisky with its new look, a striking, square bottle design. Consumer demand for a whisky with an American taste profile has been perfected over time and is presented today as a balanced blend of the finest imported rye and grain. Whether pure, on the rocks or mixed – its diversity makes it popular with many different target groups and successful in one of the largest spirit segments in South Africa.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for Firstwatch Whisky.
