100 years old whiskey will be taken back to the Antarctica

Three bottles of 100 aged whiskey will come back to Antarctica where they were found. The whiskey was a property of a British traveler expedition Ernest Sheklton who intended to conquer the South Pole more than 100 years ago.

Produced in 1898 the whiskey was left by the members of the expedition in a house at an Antarctica base at the Cape Royds while they were leaving it in hurry in March, 1909. The reason the hurry was the risk of freeze of the shore water with the winter ices. In 2010 only five cases of whiskey and brandy were found by researchers.

The discovery was sent to the company Whyte and Mackay, a supplier of Sheklton of the period to find out lost recipe of the drink. A limited edition of restored recipe whiskey was made by the whiskey-makers. The sample for the research was taken by an injection of the cork of the bottle, so the cover says hermetic.

In a swallow

Euro-Asia Economical committee (EAEC) will develop unified rules of production and turnover of alcohol in the countries of the Custom Union (CU) in the first quarter of 2013, declared Andrey Slepnev, Minster of Trade of EAEC. That will create equal conditions for concurrence of alcohol products.

The question is important as Belarus and Kazakhstan producers propose to take off the limits of supply in terms of the Union and Custom Union accordingly. Russian market is the biggest among ex-USSR markets (60% of alcohol sales every year). Russian producers and suppliers from «Far-foreign» countries dominate at it and the share of nearest neighbors doesn’t overpass 10%. At the latest meeting of EAEC Kazakhstan producers remarked that during the importation and transit process through Russia there are facts of «over-attention» to all the transportation and covering documents from the Russia responsible organs.

More than this from the 1st of January 2013 a new rule is implemented for the transportation of alcohol drinks with alcohol content more than 25% — every vehicle should be licensed. This rule is not implemented in the other countries of CU, that is why the question is discussed at EAEC.

Unified rules are still not put into life as the excise rates of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan are not harmonized yet, even though such an agreement was signed in August 2012. It means that Russian alcohol excise correction will be done in a way that Belarus and Kazakhstan will increase their rates accordingly by 2020.

An international group for the development of the agreement concerning the unified rules of turnover of alcohol products in the region the Custom Union will be created, reports Mr. Slepnev. Besides every part has already presented a project of such rules.

«Implementation of unified rules in the sector will increase the sales of the UC countries products in Russia, — the Director of a Kazakhstan transport company „Betta-Snab“ Maras Bekkaliev explained to RBK, — as Russian demand of Kazakhstan wine and brandy grows especially in the border zones».

Onishenko will meet Georgian delegation

The Chief Sanitary Doctor of the Russian Federation, Director of the Department of Control of Consumer Goods, Dr. Gennadiy Onishenko informed «Interfax» that in the very beginning of February there will be meeting with Georgian delegation concerning the return of Georgian wine and mineral water to Russia.

Dr. Onishenko said that he had got information about the members of the delegation: " I consider them rather competent according to the status of the persons who will come. Three of them are functionary and as we understand they have competence to answer questions that we have,« — he said. Dr. Onishenko didn’t precise the date of restart import of Georgian wine and water to Russia. Georgian part hopes to start dispatching products in early March.

Importation of Georgian wine and mineral water to Russia stopped in 2006 due to aggravation of Russian-Georgian relationships. Official reason was named as quality defaults. In December 2012 the Director of the Department of Control of Consumer Goods declared that the supply could restart in 2013. According to his words the documents for importation had come from 30 Georgian enterprises.

«We are ready to meet Georgian producers here, but absolutely have to see the production at place. If we are satisfied by everything we would recommend to register new products. If everything is all right we’ll start importing under a strict control.» — assured he.

Georgia is ready to satisfy all the Russian part demands in terms of WTO to restart exportation of their products to the Russian market, declared the Minister of Agriculture of Georgia David Kirvalidze.

Alcohol price increases in Russia

From the 1st of January retail price of semi-liter bottle of vodka became 170 rubles due to the order of the Russian Alcohol Regulation Department. How will it influence premium alcohol drinks?

125 rubles price of a bottle of national Russian drink stayed in the Past. The reason is in increase of the rate of excise from 300 till 400 rubles per liter of ethyl spirit. According to the idea of Vladimir Putin, consumption of spirits in Russia should diminish in two time until 2020. Nowadays it is between 16 to 19 liters of pure spirit per person. Last year the statistics of death provoked by alcohol reached 75 thousand people.

This struggle against alcoholism will be followed by grow of prices to expensive drinks, remarks Svetlana Fomicheva, manager of wine boutiques «Elitnie vina»: «Excises become more expensive, so the final product becomes more expensive too. Market will decide the size of the increase and in every concrete place the price will be dictated by the profit of the enterprise. I can only speak about my company: we will try to keep prices at the lowest level we could, as this is both in the interest of us ant the customers. But what we can’t stop is price growinig».

Increase of retail price of cognac will make 28%, brandy — 32%. And the main question is Why? The answer s evident — from 2012 the fiscal reformation in the sector of the strong spirits started. The rate of excise has been growing to 8-10% per year during the latest decade. And that corresponds with the inflation. New politics preview 30% grow.
General director of the Research Center of Federal and regional markets of alcohol Vadim Drobiz is sure that Russian alcohol market changes exclude low-income population from the consumption processes: «Prices will grow to 5-6 times by 2015. Such expensive drinks like cognac, rum, gin, whiskey, tequila will not suffer a lot, but the cheapest cognac in Russia will cost 280–290 rubles».

Actual price of whiskey in Russian bars is about 120 rubles per 50 grams, it will be at least 200. The fight with alcoholism starts from a wrong end, it will bring nothing but price grow to Russians, says an alcohol market expert, Director of Strong Drinks Academy Erkin Tuzmukhamedov. By the way, his opinion is that premium drinks will grow insignificantly.

This price increase will absolutely provoke augmentation of volume of illegal alcohol. As RIA News report currently there are about 1,3 million off-excise bottles and in 2013 the quantity will grow. Another trouble for customers is a new beer regulation. Starting from the New Year this drink is equal to spirits and can be sold only till 8 p.m.

And Kuban wines really worth a great respect as well as gratitude to the wine-makers who give a part of their soul for creation of this fine product, — said the Minister, — today we fight for a law of vine-growing and wine-making which define the general possibility of development of the sector in the region, so not only 20 firms could do that but thousands of people, officially with license. And we consider this way as production development followed by income into budget of the region.»

Eduard Kutigin accented attention of the representatives of wholesalers on the fact of acceptation of the Kuban wines at the international market, and that this high-quality natural product should be demanded at the local market.

«Today about 3 billion rubles come into the budget form excise payment. We think that at least five billions of excise should be made by the coming year. It is evident that our producers can produce such volume of wine with quality proved by exhibitions in London, Vienna, Hong-Kong by 44 medals,» — concluded the Minister.

As a mechanism of promotion of the wines of Kuban following ways were previewed — partnership of producers and distributors, active positionning of the brand «Wine of Kuban is a pride of Russia» in retail network and in HoReCa, struggle against false and bad-quality alcohol distribution.
