The grape brandy Z’ta Strela (meaning Yellow Arrow) by Imako Vino winery was awarded “Quality Champion” at the international competition for spirits ISCRO 2018, which was held in Zagreb, Croatia. Besides the awarded gold for Perla (muscat grape brandy) and silver for Merakliska (natural grape brandy) the most prestigious award was given to Z’ta Strela.
ISCRO 2018 was highly competitive with submitted 89 spirit samples from 9 different countries. The blind testing was done by a panel of spirit tasting specialists and in accordance to the regulations of OVI (International organisation of vine and wine).
The notes by the Croatian media that the Macedonians were awarded the most prestigious title Quality Champion, was an absolute pleasure for us, because in a company of very strong completion we have managed to prove that Imako Vino’s distillery can produce spirits of such high quality. Additionally, all the effort s that have gone into production and investing in a truly modern distillery were crowned by being awarded these prestigious recognitions.
