NorthStar Brands LLC has announced Goral Vodka and Honeymaker.
Goral Vodka is made from a “select variety” of Durum Wheat and Tatra Spring Mountain water in a 12th century Slovakian village, according to the company. The vodka recipe is inspired by an ancient recipe discovered in the preserved distillery beneath L’ubovna Castle. The term “Goral” means a mountain ranger who lives in the Tatra Mountains. The suggested retail price is $24.99-$29.99 for a 750-ml bottle. Lime, cranberry and grape flavors will be available in summer 2015.
Honeymaker is a “dry” style mead, not as sweet as similar products on the market, according to the company. Made from all-natural ingredients and gluten-free, Honeymaker has a 12% ABV. The suggested retail price is $14.99-$17.99 for a 750-ml bottle. Iced tea, lavender lemonade and chai tea sparkling mead flavors will be available in summer 2015.
Both products are rolling out into all key American metro markets, with full national distribution slated for 2016.
