Polar Ice Vodka Arctic Extreme awarded the IWSC Gold Outstanding

More than a thousand vodkas from around the world are submitted annually for consideration by the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC), but only 10 are bestowed the IWSC Gold Outstanding, the highest medal given to the best vodkas in the world.

One of these 10 for 2020 is Polar Ice Arctic Extreme.

The IWSC is the world’s largest and most influential international spirit awards company. They have more than 50 years’ experience with the most eminent spirit professionals, including Stephen Beal, Dawn Davies MW, Joel Harrison, Arthur Nagele and Richard Paterson.

Polar Ice Vodka also won Gold at the San Francisco Wine and Spirit Competition. It’s a quadruple distilled, three-time filtered vodka produced at Corby’s Hiram Walker and Sons Distillery in Windsor. The drink is inspired by Canada’s pristine Arctic areas and utilizes a unique 6°C chill filtration process to ensure a finished vodka that is exceptionally smooth.

Judges at the IWSC said it is, “Supremely clean nose with unctuous liquorice, anise, and the tiniest touch of chocolate and walnut evolving on the palate. Sublimely complex with exquisite texture and balance. Stylish, bold and absolutely superb.”
