The original Smirnoff name dates back to 1815, when Ivan Smirnoff began production from a battle scarred shack, flavouring his product with raspberries, strawberries, plums and other fruits. His son, Piotr Smirnoff, carried on the tradition and gained the attention of the Tzar in 1886 at a town fair. Piotr’s exhibition involved a real bear and waitresses dressed as bears serving vodka. Impressed, the Tsar appointed Smirnoff the official supplier of the Imperial Court – hence the references still on the label.

The charcoal for the filtration process is selected from a sustainable source of hardwood trees such as maple, birch or beech. These procedures ensure a clean, clear crisp result.
