Niemeroff Original Vodka

What is the story behind  Niemeroff Original Vodka:

Nemiroff – is a brand of high quality, award-winning alcohol and one of the leaders of the global alcoholic market, which manufacturing is located in Nemiroff, Ukraine. Nemiroff’s exceptional formula, pure water and natural ingredients in mixture help the brand to become distributed in more than 80 countries on 5 continents. According to the International Wine and Spirits Research, the brand is among the top 3 vodka suppliers at Duty Free shops in the world.

In 1872, the Earl Grigory Stroganoff opened the largest distillery of Podolia in Nemyriv (Ukraine). At that time, the principles of Nemiroff were founded, and they guide us even nowadays:
–high standards of product quality,
–attraction of the best specialists
–the continuous improvement of technologies.

In 1992, Nemiroff, the first in Ukraine joint venture for the production of alcoholic products, was created on the basis of the distillery in Nemyriv. It was better than its ancestor in everything. We continued to use the expertise and traditions of our predecessors, inventing new technologies and products, which are widely available around the world.
