According to the subjective evaluation of 25 tasters, the most popular products were the kvass from Beer Factory "Cogalnic" in Cimislia, Gotter from Galiaris SRL (traditional kvass), as well as the kvass from Beermaster SA (industrial kvass).
On June 30, at Rozmarin Cafe, Madein.md organized the ninth edition of blind tasting of local products. This time, the participants had the opportunity to taste the kvass manufactured in Moldova.
This event was of great importance, given the fact that the majority of consumers in the country are not familiar with the local manufacturers of kvass, as confirmed in the video spot made by Madein.md before the event.
Thus, about 25 had the opportunity to try two categories if kvass: industrial and traditional (living beverage) from nine local companies. Industrial kvass was provided by the manufacturers:
- Efes Vitanta (branded Kvassika);
- Gelibert SRL (Derevenschii);
- Beermaster SA (Bocikovoi);
- SA Bere Unitank (Spicușor).
Traditional (living) kvass was offered by the manufacturers:
- Vis-Strom SRL (Cvas Domnesc);
- Fros Import (Zlato-Cvas);
- Galiaris- Com SRL (Gotter Cvas);
- Kellers SRL (Bread based kvass);
- Beer Factory "Cogalnic" from Cimislia (traditional kvass).
The tasters had the opportunity to try nine samples and evaluate them according to the criteria: color/ clarity, taste/flavor and degree of gasification. Representatives of manufacturing companies, five of which were present at the event, did not hesitate to answer the audience’s questions and to share interesting information on their products, used ingredients and the manufacturing process. At the end, according to the subjective evaluation of 25 tasters, the most popular products were the kvass from Beer Factory "Cogalnic" in Cimislia, Gotter from Galiaris SRL (traditional kvass), as well as the kvass from Beermaster SA (industrial kvass).
It was an exciting, interactive, and most importantly useful event for both consumers, as well as for kvass producers in Moldova. Madein.md team would like to thank Rosemary Cafe, manufacturer Gelibert SRL that provided us with water and Bread Factory from Balti that provided the tasting with biscuits and other snacks.
