TASMANIA: Tamar sells vodka to Russia
A Tasmanian drinks company has secured a deal to export vodka to Russia. Tamar Distillery has spent the last six months negotiating with Russian company Vozdka and will now begin exporting 50,000 bottles of vodka annually to the country.
The deal is predicted to be worth A$12m-plus, and was brokered by TasRus, a group promoting trade deals between Tasmania and Russia.
The vodka will be marketed under the Vozdka brand and Vozdka will provide recipes, specialist equipment and technical support.
Tamar's initial production target will be 200,000 litres a year and total sales after three years are expected to reach A$12m. The company has invested A$500,000 in the project over the last two years.
