Swedish-based Vin & Spritcentralen AB (S.VSP) and German company Eckes Effektenhandel AG have been selected for exclusive negotiations to buy a majority stake in Polmos Zielona Gora, producer of Luksosowa vodka.

The Treasury Ministry will keep a 5% share of the polmos but plans to sell between 51% and 80% to a strategic investor, with a 15% share being distributed between the company's employees.

Dow Jones reported that Undenberg-Adamba and the Dutch liqueur and spirits group Bols Distilleries were also bidding for Polmos Zielona Gora, which claims a 10% share of the Polish market, but both companies recently pulled out of negotiations.
