This is what Mongolia looks like.
Genghis Khan is easily Mongolia's most well known export but David Solomon, co-owner of Golia vodka is looking to change all of that with Golia vodka. Mongolian vodka is a pretty novel concept, right? Well so is Solomon's story. Before getting in to the booze game he owned 20 Toys R Us stores and founded Redbox, those ubiquitous automated DVD rental kiosks that you see at virtually every supermarket and 7-11.
Solomon partnered Wilmington native Lee Cashell and founded Golia, now available in state stores. When talking vodka with Solomon he told us that the trifecta of super pure water (from and underground, un touched by the hands of man) source plus prized (and organically grown) Mongolian winter wheat and superior distillation (six times) makes for a pretty incredible product.
So incredible in fact that Solomon says that it's virtually hangover free. Really? Well, "Not if you drink the whole bottle." He did tell us that a close friend went through half a bottle in one sitting recently with no ill effects the next morning.
