The art of making fine vodka has an illustrious history in Russia. Passed on from
generation to generation, it was practiced by noblemen and czars alike. Even
Peter the Great is known to have created his own recipes. It is in this proud
tradition that Stolichnaya distills its classic Russian vodka.
Three key elements distinguish Stolichnaya from its imitators. First, it is distilled
from superior winter wheat rather than lesser grains like corn. Second, it is made
with only the purest, softest glacial water rather than processed water. Third, it is
put through an elaborate, time-consuming double-distillation process that
requires quartz and activated charcoal filtration.
The result is a vodka of spectacular smoothness and clarity that outshines all
others when served straight in the Russian tradition. It also mixes beautifully with
juices, tonics and sodas.
