TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2021 /CNW/ – Just in time for International Vodka Day on October 4th, Canadian vodka brand, Polar Ice, has been awarded two Gold medals at The Spirits Business Vodka Masters 2021. The awards recognize Polar Ice and Polar Ice Arctic Extreme for their pure and smooth taste, in the categories Vodka Base Corn and Vodka Base Grain, respectively.

Polar Ice has a rich history of accolades from renowned international organizations, including past wins with The Spirits Business, all supporting its legendary clean taste and Canadian ingredients. Held annually, the Vodka Masters is a well-respected blind-tasting competition which has consistently awarded Polar Ice for its commitment to quality and innovation. The brand has received Gold each year from 2017 to 2019, and now again in 2021.

“Polar Ice Vodka has proudly been made at the Hiram Walker Distillery in Windsor, Ontario since the 1980’s,” says Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender of Hiram Walker & Sons Limited. “For a truly Canadian product, we rely on our regional Essex and Kent county farmers for exceptional quality grain and draw on the local water resources to create a pure and smooth vodka. We are proud to receive Gold from The Spirits Business in their annual Vodka Masters competition, and congratulate our distillers on perfecting their craft in Polar Ice and Polar Ice Arctic Extreme, both outstanding examples of Canadian innovation.”
