This outspoken original has set the benchmark for authentic premium Russian vodka—unmatched heritage honed for today’s connoisseur. Recognized in its homeland as a benchmark for excellence, Russian Standard Original owes its name and quality to Dmitri Mendeleev’s classic formula, commissioned by Tsar Alexander III for optimum balance and purity. Its combination of traditional wheat taste—from the hardy winter wheat of the Russian steppes—and remarkable clarity—from the soft glacial waters of the frozen north—make Russian Standard Original a perfect vodka to sip neat or as your preferred spirit for a long drink. Russian Standard has come to epitomize vodka in the spirit’s motherland, and in the process become an iconic symbol of modern Russian life and dynamism. The dramatic bottle design, inspired by the Ivan the Great Bell Tower in the heart of Moscow, evokes Russia’s Imperial past, and the vital role that vodka plays in Russia’s most elegant traditions. Striking a balance between Russian heritage and the energy of modern life, Russian Standard Original is a masterpiece of technology, passion and craftsmanship.

While it seems only natural for Russia to enjoy a renaissance in premium vodka production (vodka is Russia’s national drink), it took an enterprising visionary to recognize Russia’s potential as the 21st century motherland of premium vodka. Roustam Tariko’s first insight was to solve a perplexing paradox: though the recognized birthplace of vodka and the largest vodka market in the world, after the fall of the communism, Russia had no premium domestic vodka brand of its own. Assuring Russia’s place as the birthplace of vodka, Roustam Tariko launched the world’s first premium Russian vodka made according to the exacting standards of chemist Dimitri Mendeleev’s 1894 formula for authentic vodka.The rest, as they say, is history. Russian Standard Original quickly became the number one selling premium vodka in the country, paving the way for the launch of super-premium Platinum and ultra-premium Imperia. Over the last 10 years, Russia has undergone a true renaissance and Russian Standard has played a pivotal role, providing Russians from all walks of life the opportunity to realize their dreams. A premier entrepreneurial company with leading businesses in spirits production and distribution, banking and insurance, Russian Standard offers more than products or services, it provides Russians with a sense of pride and personal freedom.Russian Standard Vodka’s unwavering quest for absolute authenticity has transformed the field of premium spirit production. Its $60 million state-of-the-art distillery in St. Petersburg is the most technologically advanced spirit production factory in the world, designed to meet increasing demand for the the brand around the world. Named the number one premium vodka in Russia and ranked one of the fasted growing brands in the world, Russian Standard is well on its way to achieving its long-term vision as the international leader in premium and luxury spirits.
