Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Crystal clear appearance. Pleasing grainy, dry, wafer-like aromas are firm. Sturdy flavors are grain-focused, stone dry, slightly yeasty and saline. Lovely grain-driven finish. (Mar 2015)
Russian Standard Gold is a unique combination of classic vodka and carefully selected extracts of Siberian Ginseng, or ”golden root” in Russian, adding vigour and vitality to celebrations. The product packaging - with its sumptuously embossed gold foiled label and one-of-a-kind gift box - embodies the true traditions of Russian generosity and gift giving. This is what makes Russian Standard Gold an ideal vodka to celebrate the many golden moments in life shared with friends, family and colleagues.
|Wachusett Brewery founders Ned, Kevin and Quinny developed a significant appreciation for beer while attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Adventures in biking, canoeing, and hiking that led the trio to the northern New England states allowed them to visit some of the first operating craft breweries. Armed with a ”we can do this” attitude the three cast off from their careers in engineering and biology to found the Wachusett Brewing Co. in 1993. Wachusett Country Ale was introduced to beer fans of Massachusetts the next year after lots of experimenting to get the formula just right. When Wachusett opened, the three designed and built most of the equipment; did the brewing and filling, selling and delivering, and everything else that a small startup brewery needed.
Ned, Kevin and Quinny are now backed by some of the most passionate and capable co-workers in the industry. Wachusett Ales continue to be hand crafted with the finest ingredients available, bottled and kegged in our Westminster facility. The three have never strayed from their plan to brew and sell the freshest, highest quality beers possible.
