Russian Standard Original is recognized throughout its native homeland as the ultimate benchmark for all Russian vodkas. Distilled in accordance with professor Mendeleev’s original formula, it is a superbly smooth spirit with a pure taste that maintains the characteristic “bread” flavor of traditional Russian vodka. The unique shape of its specially textured bottle is inspired by the 200 tonne bell, which stands at the foot of the Ivan the Great Bell Tower in Moscow. The bottle also features Dmitri Mendeleev’s signature as a mark of its absolute authenticity and historic ancestry. Russian Standard Original is the finest expression of traditional Russian vodka.
Distilled from the finest Russian winter wheat from the southern steppes of Russia, blended with the softest and purest glacial waters from Lake Ladoga and incorporating time-honored Siberian golden roots which provide a soft taste – Russian Standard Gold is clear in colour. A smooth and rich vodka, Russian Standard Gold has a slightly honey sweetness with a good viscosity in the mouth and a peppery heat in its finish.
