Kratos Distillery Vodka (Russia)
The Kratos distillery is one of the oldest producers of liquor products in Russia. In 1997 the distillery was fully reconstructed and modernized. A new building was built and new equipment was installed.
The products of Kratos have been widely accepted and recognized throughout Russia. Kratos distillery is one of the few distilleries in Russia who have export licenses. Kratos exports their products to France and Norway. This success is due to their use of modern technology in manufacturing a high quality product which retains the tradition of Russian vodka. Kratos uses equipment manufactured by Kroness, a German manufacturer.
This modern equipment makes the process of producing the genuine Russian drink technologically regulated, ecologically clean, and economically profitable. The water required for the production of Kratos vodka is acquired from its own well at a depth of 200 m. This water is then chemically cleaned, softened and filtered, and then mixed with Luxe highest quality ethyl alcohol. Special natural ingredients that are beneficial to human health are added to the water and alcohol mixture in precise proportions.
Finally, the product goes through a special laboratory analysis to ensure quality control standards have been met. There are over 100 specialists working at the plant. These are high qualified specialists with a lot of knowledge, skills and experience. Besides using the classic traditional recipes of the vodka production, the technologists and specialists of the plant are constantly working on new products.
Kratos distillery is located in the Lipetsk region of south-western Russia on the rolling hills of the Central Russian Upland. The Don and Voronezh rivers cross the centre of the region from north to south. Historians have connected the Lipetsk birth with the name of Peter the Great, who had reportedly visited the upper water of the Voronezh river. In accordance with the legend Peter the Great noticed a spring of pure water spurting out of the earth. The bottom and banks of the spring were covered with a grayish-brown rusty deposit. The emperor ordered the building of a well with an oak frame of logs on the site, similar to the European health resorts which were popular during that period.
The Lipetsk region is located in the center of the European territory of Russia at the crossing of the main transport highways of the country. An extremely favorable geographical position, presence of significant natural resources are the determining factors of social and economic growth.
