About Soyombo Super Premium Mongolian Vodka
Soyombo Vodka is crafted from a centuries old vodka recipe and is made from organic wheat cultivated from the Selenge Province in Mongolia. Once the wheat is harvested, it is mashed and fermented before being distilled six times. Following distillation, the vodka is filtered for five days over charcoal, quartz, diamond and silver. This filtering process removes any remaining sediment in the vodka, and produces an incredibly pure and clean spirit. After the vodka has been filtered, it is brought to proof with pure spring water sourced from the Bogd Khan Mountain, which overlooks the Mongolian capital.
As a result, the vodka has an aroma of fresh bread, anise and chocolate. The aroma gives way to a medium body, with touches of vanilla cream, citrus, toast and black pepper on the palate. The finish is dry and bold, with hints of sweet citrus and pepper.
Soyombo Vodka earned the Seal of Excellence from The Tasting Panel Magazine
, which said that the vodka was "sumptuous,"and its finish was "exotic and laced with espresso bean." In addition, the vodka earned the Gold Medal at the World Spirits Awards in 2012, and the Superior Taste Award at the International Taste & Quality Institute Competition in 2012. It also earned four stars from F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
