More great news for Monopolowa! A nice photo and mention of Monopolowa Gin in Business Insider. Looks like we’re the 7th Best Gin You Can Buy! “Made in Austria, Monopolowa Dry Gin is another quintessential, light flavor product with selective ingredients. Caraway, coriander, and fennel seed, as well as ginger root, lemon peel, and orange peel, are what gives this gin its distinctive bite.”

The Beverage Testing Institute awards Vodka Monopolowa a gold medal, 94 points, Exceptional, Best Buy. “Clear color. Aromas of lemon peppercorn muffin, microgreens, and delicate fresh herbs with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a melon gelato, lemon mint, limestone, and faint anise. A smooth, stylish, subtly flavorful vodka.”

Harvey Monastirsky, The President and Owner of MWL, working the old fork-lift magic as he unloads 800 cases of assorted liqueurs— blue curacao, le grand muriel, melon liqueur—and triple sec that we’ve been anticipating for months! It’s 4:30pm on a Friday and our warehouse closes at 12:30pm. But our Warehouse Manager, Manuel, came to open it back up, and Harvey rolled up his sleeves… That’s how we do it at MWL.
