The history of legendary "RUSSKAYA" dates back to the 60s of the XX century and occupies a special place among Russian vodka brands. Its Russian nature is already inherent in its very name.
The recipe of vodka “RUSSKAYA” was developed in 1967 by technologists L. Milovanova and P. Rodionova with Leningrad Distillery. The principal feature of “RUSSKAYA” distinguishing it from earlier technologies lies in utilization of a new technology of rectification enabling to eliminate harmful infusions from the product. This feature streamlined the improvement of flavour, as well as the quality of vodka in general.
Since the early 70s “RUSSKAYA” became the most popular Soviet and afterwards Russian vodka brand. Practically ideal value for money and classic taste, comprehensible for the majority of consumers, doubled the attractiveness of this vodka and contributed to its confident leadership in sales in the national spirits market.
Since 1977 market share of “RUSSKAYA” vodka increased from 19% to 68% of overall vodka and other spirits production in the USSR.
The volume of production and sales of “RUSSKAYA” vodka had achieved record levels by the 80s: 187 mln decalitres of “RUSSKAYA” was produced nationally only in 1982. That’s the absolute record in the world history of spirits!
The “RUSSKAYA” trademark was recognized as a well-known trademark in Russia in 1985. In order to promote the state interests in the international alcohol market and raise the status and prestige of the authentic Russian vodka, FTE “Sojuzplodoimport” registered the designation of origin of the product “Russkaya Vodka” and received the first certificate for the right to use this designation under register number 65/01.
“RUSSKAYA” vodka, prepared according to special technology with the use of high quality spirit “Lux” distilled from wheat and rye, and potable soft water, is distinguished with the soft and clear taste as well as slight piquancy of the aftertaste.
Nowadays, as formerly, “RUSSKAYA” is considered to be the benchmark of the national Russian drink and enjoys firm standing in the Russian and world markets.
