About Khortytsa:
Khortytsa (Hor-Ti-Tsa), the third largest selling vodka in the world, was founded in 2003 by Mr. Eugen Chernyak with the premise to use only the best ingredients and the most sophisticated processes in order to produce the best vodka. The manufacturing plant was built on Khortitsa Island in South Eastern Ukraine. Khortytsa is one of the largest islands of the Dniepr River, and a natural sanctuary. It is famous for its mineral water springs and the Zaporozhian Kosacks have used the water there as medicine for centuries. Water is the key ingredient of Khortytsa vodka. It is purified by a system of silver, platinum and shungite filters amongst many others. Shungite is a rock that mainly consists of carbon fullerenes and adds the “magic” to the water by mineralizing it. After the water is processed, it is blended with the alcohol – which, again, is independently checked for quality by vodka experts before it is used or infused with varying flavors. Each type of Khortytsa vodka has distinct flavor. Visit
