PSFK Tours Russian Standard Vodka's St. Petersburg Distillery [Pics]
Go behind the scenes and glimpses the process and machinery behind creating Russia "most authentic" vodka.
If you're looking for an authentic gift for your favorite Slavophile this season, look no further. Touted as the best Russian vodka both by academics and actual Russians, Russian Standard Vodka comes in three classes (Standard, Standard Platinum, and Imperia), and as one quick visit to its website will show you–this is the real deal. Perfectly encompassing the west's idea of a strong Soviet vodka that'll knock you off your feet, with the desire of today's successful Moscovites and St. Petersburgian's for a luxury and premium spirit (with heritage), Russian Standard is more than just a kitsch brand.
