The first Smirnoff Vodka was produced in the early 1860's by Piort Arsenyevitch Smirnov in a Russian town. He was also the first person to use charcoal filtration in his distilling process. During the Russian Revolution the distillery was confiscated by the state, but one of the founders sons left Russia and moved to Paris. Here he met an American businessman who thought that perhaps the Russian Vodka would find a market in the United States. In March of 1934 Smirnoff Vodka was introduced to the United States. Smirnoff Vodka is still owned and distributed by Heublein, and produced by Ste Pierre Smirnoff.
