Russian Standard Vodka: Sip Cocktails in Style

I recently attended an event at the Las Vegas John Varvatos Boutique and sipped on the most delicious vodka cocktail I had ever had (and I’ve had many), a Tolstoy Tang from Russian Standard Vodka.

Some vodkas leave me with a bit of a headache but not Russian Standard. It has a clean, smooth, rich wheat taste. So delicious.
Russian Standard is the leading premium vodka in Russia (so you know it’s good) and is unique because:

  • It is made with only the finest hand-selected Russian winter wheat.
  • It is distilled and bottled at the company’s $60 million state of the art distillery in St. Petersburg.
  • It is made according to the formula for vodka established in 1894 by famed Russian scientist Dmitri Mendeleev.
  • It is four-times distilled and charcoal filtered.

Yum yum! It’s great alone as a sipping shot or in a cocktail.
