Russian Standard is more than a name it’s a promise to give vodka lovers around the world a new standard in vodka. Where once drinkers had to choose between a pure vodka or a vodka with good taste, now drinkers can have both. Made only in St. Petersburg, Russian Standard Original adheres faithfully to Dmitri Mendeleev’s 1894 principles for the creation of vodka.
Dmitri Mendeleev’s dedication to science and our passion for vodka making converge in every bottle of Russian Standard Vodka, lovingly produced in their shared hometown of St Petersburg, the Venice of the North. It’s not just the home of Russian Standard by chance. To begin with, it has an incalculable advantage…
St Petersburg stands close to Lake Ladoga, whose soft waters of glacial origin are perfectly suited for use in vodka that sets new standards. Lake Ladoga water contains very few impurities. Its vast granite basin, created by glaciers in the last Ice Age, preserves the softness of the water.
Not much further away lies the rich black soil of the Russian Steppes, where our winter wheat is grown. Nothing less than the finest food quality grain is selected, which contributes to the unique sensory profile and taste of our vodka.
These natural ingredients are then brought together at our state-of-the art distillery in St Petersburg, where they pass through a proprietary distillation process more than 200 times to arrive at a state of near-celestial purity and smoothness.
And so we come to where it all converges. Unstrained nature. Cutting-edge technology. All condensed into a single moment of pure pleasure.
This is Vodka as it Should Be. Russian Standard Vodka is the benchmark for excellence in the homeland of vodka.
