Day 269 Drink: Russian Standard Vodka
Russian Standard Vodka dominates the premium segment in Russia with a 60 percent market share. The company sells more than 1.9 million cases per year in Russia and over 50 export markets across Europe, the U.S. and Asia. Russian Standard was introduced in 1998 and conforms to the formula for vodka established in 1894 by Russian scientist Dimitri Mendeleev.
Russian Standard Vodka is an 80 proof vodka with a slightly sweet nose. Distilled in St. Petersburg, the vodka is smooth with just a hint of licorice in its flavor profile.
