Wild Bilberry Infusion:

"Be prepared to be shocked!" This is how Nightclub and Bar magazine (Nov. 2000) introduces this unique new beverage. It is the only vodka with an infusion of wild Bilberries that is commercially available in the US. It has a reduced alcohol content and a sweetly smooth finish.

The Jewel of Russia Wild Bilberry Infusion is made according to an ancient traditional recipe by infusing handpicked wild Bilberries with fine Russian vodka. Bilberries are native to Northern Russia, and grow on mountainsides. Bilberries are related to Lingonberries and are thought to have a general healthy action.

The ingredients used are extremely fresh and undergo only traditional treatment to preserve the natural taste of the fruit. The berries are not cultivated. These are wild Bilberries, picked by hand. They are crushed and soaked in Premium vodka. The vodka-Bilberry infusion then sets for a period of time and then is filtered and bottled on premises. The intense flavor and aroma that results from the infusion far surpasses any flavored vodkas and the existing popular vodka-juice compounds.

These rare Russian berries, married with premium vodka create a unique drink, described by the Beverage Tasting Institute of Chicago in the following terms: "Soft texture. Very exotic flavorings; chocolate, cherries and sweet liqueur-like components".most interesting." (Click on the "Critics Choice" page for more ratings and comments).

Russian nobles developed and perfected this traditional low-alcohol vodka-based drink over 300 years ago. With its introduction in the United States, American consumers have an exceptional opportunity to unveil this precious heritage of old Russia.
