Judge's opinion:

1st Place: Golden Chanterelles (Cantharellus formosus), Winter Chanterelles (Craterellus neotubaeformis), Hedgehogs (Hydnum umbilicatum) and Chanty vodka made from Golden chanterelles. I sliced the chanties, stuffed a jug and topped  it off with vodka and let it sit for 3 days. than I squeezed every drop out of the chanterelles and voilá, a vodka that tastes like chanterelles. I usually do not care for vodka, but a sip of chanty essence is a different story! It still tastes great a year later!
