RUSSIAN STANDARD embarked on a mission to create Russia’s first completely authentic premium vodka – a spirit made from 100% pure Russian ingredients and expertly distilled in Russia, the true homeland of vodka.

Today, Russian Standard Vodka is proud to be Russia’s number one premium vodka and one of the fastest growing spirits brands in the world.

By combining centuries-old traditions with state-of the-art distilling and a passionate attention to detail, we produce an unrivalled range of premium vodkas that epitomize the very essence of our vibrant, modern society.


VODKA is the true spirit of Russia. For centuries, this national drink has been at the heart of Russian life – at significant family gatherings, flamboyant festive parties and those special moments when Russians come together to celebrate.

Today in St Petersburg – Russia’s sparkling “Venice of the North” and one of Europe’s most beautiful and sophisticated cities – Russian Standard Vodka is being produced, reflecting the very essence of Russia’s modern society: bold, confident, stylish and adventurous.

As discerning consumers continue to seek out the very finest authentic products, Russian Standard offers the world vodkas of exceptional purity and style.


A century before the foundation of Russian Standard Vodka, Professor Dmitri Mendeleev – author of the Periodic Table of Elements and one of history’s greatest scientists – established the precise point of equilibrium for completely pure – Russian vodka: 40% ABV.

In 1894, Mendeleev’s perfect formula was established by Tsar Alexander III as the absolute mark of authenticity for vodka production of the highest standard.

By bringing Professor Mendeleev’s original vision into the 21st century, Russian Standard honours the pioneering quality of his work and the enduring model of excellence set by his formula. Today, Russian Standard is creating spirits that have established new, unequalled heights of perfection.

Finest Wheat 

Begin with the finest products. Russian Standard vodkas are made using only WINTER WHEAT grown in the fertile black soil of Russia’s southern steppes.

The winter wheat used in producing the vodka is hand-selected from slow-growing varieties planted in September and left to mature under the deep snows of the long Russian winters. At harvest time, in late July or early August, the ripened wheat will have accumulated exceptionally high levels of starch.

Plump with the rich, traditional flavour of bread, this is the grain that gives our vodkas their unique character and taste.

 Glacial Water


Blend with the purest, softest glacial waters from Lake Ladoga. WATER is the very soul of all vodkas. Indeed, the Russian word “vodka” quite literally means “little water”.

Covering some 17,600 square meters, Lake Ladoga, Europe’s largest freshwater lake, is the natural source of some of the softest water on earth.

Springing from a harsh, unforgiving glacial world with ancient origins – yet just 40 kilometers north of our St Petersburg distillery – the underground sources of Lake Ladoga provide us with the inexhaustible supply of crystal-clear, mineral-rich pure water that forms the liquid soul of all our premium vodkas.



In today’s world, people often sense that what they experience is not real enough. Too often things seem contrived, fake, artificial or somehow not as they should be. It’s the same with vodka.

People are drinking vodka that they instinctively know is not as good as it should be. Like many other experiences, this is not something they think about but something they know and feel. They are not connoisseurs, but they know what good vodka should be like.

It should be of high quality. It should come from Russia. It should be genuine and real. In fact, it should be just like their other real life experiences. ‘Vodka as it should be’ brings to life the real Russian vodka experience.



Russian Standard Vodka offers the world a portfolio of authentic Russian vodkas of exquisite perfection and great style. Each product is a vivid expression of vodka passion, inspiring and transforming moments that bring people together with zestful joy and enthusiasm.
