Stock Spirits Group takes Top Accolades at San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2009

- Three Awards for market leading Polish Vodkas -
Stock Spirits Group is pleased to announce that it has won three awards at this year's San Francisco World Spirits Competition, which took place on March 21st & 22nd, at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco.

Sweeping the board in the Polish Vodka categories, Stock Spirits took three accolades; a silver medal for it's Wisniowka Lubelska (Flavoured vodka - fruit - cherry); a bronze medal for it's Wódka Żołądkowa Gorzka (Vodka - fruit/herbs); and another bronze for it's Orkisz Vodka (Vodka - spelt wheat).

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the first comprehensive, international spirits judging ever held in the United States on an annual basis. Founded in 2000 by directors of the San Francisco International Wine Competition, Anthony Dias Blue and Carol Seibert, the Spirits Competition continues each year to grow in entrants as well as stature within the industry.

Neil Everitt, CEO of Stock Spirits Group commented: "We are thrilled with the latest addition to our awards cabinet, and these three come at a particularly good time as we focus on growing recognition for our Polish Vodka brands in the USA."

He continued: "In the last month we have been rolling out a new marketing strategy for Orzel, our high end premium vodka, which is handcrafted by Poland's most well known distillery, Polmos Lublin - where our three San Fran winners are also manufactured. So far, Orzel has been well received in Florida, Manhattan, New Jersey, and Illinois, and California & Texas are next on our radar."
