Peter the Great arrived to the Neva river to create a new city, and indeed a new state. There, on what became the Imperial city of St. Petersburg, he hoisted the Czar's Standard. Two hundred years later, it was in this great city that D.I. Mendeleev created the highest standard for Russian vodka in 1894. Today Russian Standard Vodka revives that same formula, combining the finest wheat grains from the heartland and soft glacial water from the frozen north to create a classic Russian spirit with a superbly smooth and soft taste. Russia's leading premium vodka!
