Partisan Black – still not the Russian Standard
War changes everything. And that includes Partisan! With Putin's invasion of Ukraine, it went without saying for us to stop producing Belarusian goods.
It was the final trigger for a step we had been preparing for over a long period of time due to political developments: bringing production entirely back to Germany.
True hearts never die
We wanted to give our classic an overhaul. With Partisan Green, we were preparing to switch to German production as early as 2020. As a traditional, family-run distillery
in the south, we found conditions which even allowed us to set new quality standards: with naturally pure water straight from a mountain spring and wheat from independent farmers, coupled with everything we have learned about vodka up to this point.
40% alcohol, 100% passion
The result is a mild, pure vodka with distinct wheat notes. We are simultaneously nostalgic, grateful and proud that we can now continue to practice true vodka craftsmanship in Germany without having to rely on soulless industrial bottling. Despite extreme increases to the price of energy and wheat, we continue to produce fairly at every level with a moderate price correction.
This is the new Partisan Black. We hope you like it as much as we do. To a new chapter!weiterlesen...
The classic Partisan has fully embraced Russian vodka tradition. Despite this, Partisan doesn't just go hand in hand with tradition and quality, but progress and zeitgeist as well. That's why we have once again passionately charged headlong into our next adventure: Partisan Green!
Our base is once again pure wheat. For Partisan Green, we opted for an organic certified wheat from Germany. It is also critical for us to be able to guarantee continuous quality at all times without sacrificing character.
In addition to the excellent ingredients and the artisan quality, certified sustainable, vegan and organic production was essential for us. After a long search, we have found the perfect combination for all our quality criteria in the south of Germany: a family-run distillery boasting more than 100 years of experience, equipped with a still and filter technology perfectly suited for vodka, located right on a spring whose water travels through the depths of countless layers of mineral and rock, giving the Partisan Green its gentle, yet minerally character.
After defining the perfect fire together and following the final chill filtering, the Partisan Green was created with its appealing, pure mildness and traditional character.weiterlesen...
As a modern business, Partisan is always setting itself new challenges. Sustainability plays a decisive role in this respect. How can we reduce our ecological footprint without sacrificing quality? How can we use all our resources more responsibly, and save CO2, materials and packaging waste? Partisan has found the solution in the bag-in-box. We have all known the concept for a number of years from the wine segment, but now, Partisan is bringing the obvious benefits of the bag-in-box to the spirits sector. The same great taste, but in fully recyclable packaging. Separate it from other waste, fold it and put it in the recycling bin, saving space.
What remains is real, traditional distillation craftsmanship in the form of a high quality, mild distillate.
Available in two package sizes:
· 3L – ideal for parties, smaller functions and events, for consumers and restaurant/bar owners
· 10L – perfect for sustainable solutions in the restaurant/bar trade, large events and retailers with ‘minimal packaging’ concepts
Fact: the Bag-In-Box system saves energy during transport and production! Manufacturing and dispatching for example 10 litres of vodka in the Bag-In-Box system reduces the use of resources and primary energy compared to 10 glass bottles.
VODKA FROM 100% OATS
Unique in Europe, artisanally produced and in touch with the times. We have to admit, the oats don't make the vodka any healthier. But certainly more exciting!
Partisan Oat Vodka is impressive thanks to its very fine, mild character which tends towards the sweeter side. An alcohol content of 44% creates the perfect balance of soft mildness with maximum flavour release.
Given the greater complexity of producing a pure oat vodka in this quality, we needed experienced distillers. That is to say, we needed a traditional, family-run distillery in the south of Germany, where all other Partisan vodkas are also artisanally produced. Natural mountain spring water and independently cultivated certified organic oats do the rest to meet the standards we are known for.
The only atypical feature of Partisan vodka is the price. On the one hand, this is due to the higher raw material usage, as oats are significantly less productive than wheat, and due to the production costs of small, artisanally produced batches on the other. The look of this high-quality premium vodka is stylishly topped off with a stopper. An addition to our range as solemn as it is modern.
For vodka lovers, curious people on the hunt for something special, and all those who just want to stop talking about nothing but gin.weiterlesen...
PARTISAN + FEINE SAHNE FISCHFILET = GRÜNE BOJE
Our family's first expansion outside of vodka. For this step, we teamed up with the peppermint liqueur experts from FEINE SAHNE FISCHFILET.
No one has given peppermint more limelight than the band from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. And regardless of the many years of tastings in front of, on and behind the stage, they are just great guys who share the same values as we do. The perfect foundation for collaboration!
Together, we wanted to do things differently, but, more than anything, we wanted to do better and have spent a long time tinkering with the perfect liqueur for us. Unlike common products on the market, we wanted a natural flavour. In a specialised workshop, we have found the special peppermint extract, which is also obtained from regionally cultivated mint. You can taste difference right away. The gooey feeling you normally get in your mouth is a thing of the past, because the significant reduction in sugar content offers enough space for a real taste of mint.
Something else which Partisan and Feine Sahne Fischfilet share: we love good design. That's why we have gone our own way and are proud of the result.
Of course, the northerners also had the perfect name up their sleeve, and the "Grüne Boje" was born.weiterlesen...
Partisan emerged from an idea among friends and went all the way from operation to company. Following a visit to Kyiv, where vodka can truly taste great, we thought that vodka should also make its way to Germany. The founders of Partisan wanted to bring a product to the market for people who share their values. Back then, they found the smoothest wheat brandy to do this in Belarus, together with reliable partners who also shared their values and convictions. As a tribute to all resistance fighters, this vodka was christened Partisan.
The brand originated without commercial ambitions or significant prior knowledge and clearly reflects the founders' mindset. Despite its growth, the adventure of this free, economically independent brand's founding continues to manifest itself in its central outlook on life to this day.
From Belarus to Germany
Following the production of Partisan vodka, initially in a small, independent distillery in Belarus, 2020 saw Partisan Green Vodka, an organically produced vodka made in southern Germany, added to the family.
However, as the regime in Belarus became increasingly strict, Partisan gave a lot of thought to moving the entirety of its production to Germany. Thus, with the Russian troops' invasion of Ukraine in 2022, production of Partisan in Belarus ceased immediately. The repressive state apparatus there should no longer be able to finance itself through Partisan. As a result, all other Partisan product lines were brought into the south German family-run business with which we were already familiar – a traditional and independent distillery boasting more than 100 years of experience.
A partisan is a freedom fighter, and that's exactly what this brand embodies. Partisans braved any challenge, even if the task appeared too great at times. With this partisan-like passion, the brand stands against the industry, even if the means and conditions are significantly worse. Partisan's economic independence creates the brand's characteristic freedom. For Partisan, brand values are more important than unconditional commercial success. Partisan is thus more than just a vodka, because the brand isn't defined by the product, but rather can be seen as a project. Unlike other brands, this means Partisan is able to act freely while being authentic and sincere. Partisan stands out so clearly from others and shows itself to be a trustworthy brand with which you can and should identify, because Partisan is a brand which meets you on an equal footing.
With Partisan, you aren't just getting high-quality vodka at a fair price, but a loyal friend as well. The brand already has a wealth of experience and can tell a fair few stories even now. Nevertheless, Partisan isn't stuck in the past, rather, it is in step with the times and passionate, with its eye set on the future. Partisan always remains true to itself and the brand's identity. By combining previous experiences with innovative ways of thinking, Partisan is proving itself to be both strong and exciting.weiterlesen...
