Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen


Vedrich Gin


Minsk Crystal Rue, Kryshtal Vodka Amalgamation Factory, Minsk, Belarus. We are led to believe this is trying to be distributed in the USA by the American Belarusian Import-Export Company, Newbury Port, Massachusettes.




The Kryshtal Vodka Amalgamation in Minsk Belarus has developed a patented technology, which purifies the water before being used in distillation, helping to make the smoothest of spirits.


Marketed in rectangular, frosted bottles, in the USA the packaging has the word “Gin” emphasized in big colored letters against the simple bottle background design.

Tasting Notes

On the nose is faint juniper and citrus, which is echoed on the palate. The Gin is viscous and smooth and more like Vodka (given the faint sense of botanicals) and this is not surprising, as the company is better known for producing Vodka.

This light Gin, like Bafferts Gin, is a good option for people seeking to broaden their palate and experimenting with Gin for the first time. It is hard to recommend mixed drinks for this one because it is masked by the addition of almost anything – think Vodka Martini and you’re on the beginning tracks of what you could experiment with – at 90 proof we’re not sure how much experimenting you’ll manage!

We would love to know more about this company, it’s Gin, and availability of it in the USA.
