Alexandrion’s winning formula

At the recent World Whisky Awards 2024, Carpathian Single Malt Whisky was awarded a gold medal and won the top accolade in the single cask, single malt category; it was also named as the winner in the Country category.

The Alexandrion Group has also announced a unique collaboration with Mexican tequila house, Casa Aceves, who they will be working with to create multiple top-tier original tequila brands

At the World Whisky Awards the Carpathian Single Malt Whisky expressions of Burgundy and Feteasca Neagra secured silver medals, followed by the Cognac and Ruby port winning bronze medals.

However, their Vradiono expression was the most prominent award-winner becoming the gold medal winner in the single cask and single malt category, no age statement and Country winner.

Commenting on the awards, Dr Nawaf Salameh, founding Chairman of Alexandrion Group said: “The Alexandrion Group’s flagship product Carpathian Single Malt Whisky, is riding the crest of the wave of new world distillers, which is reshaping the single malt whisky landscape.

“Receiving these awards demonstrates our commitment to the whole industry and contributing to its bright future. I am very proud of the whole team for creating a premium whisky but also an envoy of Romanian nature, culture and heritage”.

Underpinning the unique qualities of the Carpathian Single Malt Whisky is the purity of the water used in the production of the whisky, which emerges from deep below the Carpathian Mountains, combined with the high quality Romanian barley and Romania’s climate which encourage a faster maturation.

Working with Casa Aceves, based in the western Mexican state of Jalisco – the main tequila-producing area in the country – the joint venture will see the development and launch of a range of premium tequilas, which will be distributed by Alexandrion.

Both Alexandrion Group and Casa Aceves will open production facilities through which this joint venture operation will be managed and implemented.

Alexandrion Group will distribute the products globally through its international network.

Dr Nawaf Salameh, Founding Chairman of the Alexandrion Group was delighted to announce the news: “It is always very exciting to bring a new category drink within the Alexandrion Group’s brand portfolio and to go on a new journey alongside experts such as the team at Casa Aceves.

“Everything about their brand holds true the values within our group of heritage and artisanal quality. It is also another step-forward for our ongoing global expansion plans to broaden our product range and offer more diversity to all our end consumers”.

Commenting on the joint venture Jose Aceves, CEO of Casa Aceves said: “We are thrilled to synergise with the Alexandrion Group, a group that values quality, to incorporate our original tequilas into their global portfolio, thereby re-educating consumers about authentic tequila.”

Casa Aceves makes tequilas with 100% blue agave grown in the magical land of the Highlands of Jalisco; the soil of this region is rich in certain minerals that grant enchanting notes to its Tequilas. For this reason, this region is known as the Golden Triangle of Tequila.

Alexandrion Group is the market leader in the production and distribution of spirits and wines in Romania and the only single malt producer in the country. The group has a history of over 200 years in the local spirits industry, producing some of the strongest brands in Romania, at The Alexandrian Saber Distilleries 1789, recognised both nationally and internationally for their quality and refinement.
