Stolichnaya® Premium Vodka has its origins in the Tambov region of Russia. Here, amidst its own wheat farms, the ultra-modern distillery Talvis produces the highest quality of Alpha Spirit by carefully removing all of the volatile “heads” and oily “tails”. This means just three distillations are all that are required to preserve the subtle flavour of wheat, characteristic of Stoli®. Then, at the Latvijas Balzams distillery in Riga, the spirit is filtered through Russian birch charcoal and quartz sand to create vodka of unsurpassed smoothness.
Stolichnaya® traces its origins back to the dawn of the 20th Century. It become the brand we know during the 1940s Soviet Russia. Since then, it has journeyed into space on board Soyuz 19, pioneered a new world of flavoured vodka in the 1970s. It was mixed in cocktails for the finest actors and the greatest Presidents. It created and defined the super-premium vodka category with Stolichnaya® Gold, launched in 1989 as Stolichnaya® Cristall. Then in 2003 Stolichnaya® created a new reference quality, ultra-luxury vodka, with the introduction of elit™ by Stolichnaya® – the highest rated vodka in the world*.
Stolichnaya® is celebrated by the finest bartenders for the smooth character it brings to every drink.
