Acronym KVINT is composed of the first letters of the Russian phrase meaning:
Divins, wines and beverages of Tiraspol
The history of KVINT dates back to 1897, when the first rectification warehouse was built and launched into operation on Vokzalnaya Street in Tiraspol. At that time it was specialized in production of 40% alc. vodka from homemade grape wines purchased from the peasants of nearby villages.
