Kvint (short for: Kon’iaki, vina i napitki Tiraspol’ia) is a wine- and brandy distillery based in Tiraspol, the administrative center of Transnistria (Moldova). Locals consider Kvint a national symbol. Its factory is shown on the 5 Transnistrian ruble banknote. Founded in 1897, the company is the oldest still-operating commercial enterprise in the region. Its annual production is approximately ten million liters of alcoholic drinks. The company also makes wines and vodkas. It is one of Transnistria's largest exporters. Visitors to its factory can sign up for daily tours which end with a product taste sampling. Kvint obtained ISO 9001-94 certification in 2000 and ISO 9001-2000 in 2003. The factory is one of only few enterprises in the former Soviet Union which can assure a kosher production process.
