Stolichnaya Elit Vodka
Developed to capitalise on the popularity of the Stolichnaya brand, this is a unique super-premium release produced from 100% grain, using a patented 'freeze-filtration' technique. The first step in Stolichnaya’s reinterpretation of the process is to pass the spirit through a special silver filter upon which the vodka is frozen to -18C. During the freezing, the vodka becomes glycerine-like, and the solubility of different impurities reduces. The liquids density increases causing all the impurities to freeze against the walls of the filtration tanks. These unwanted crystalline substances are then discarded from the distillate resulting in one of the finest and smoothest vodkas on the market today.
A vodka bearing a Russian name that is actually distilled and bottled in Russia? Apparently so! Stolichnaya (pronounced stol-eetch-n'yah) means 'capital city.'
The west began drinking "Stoli" in 1972, when Pepsi brokered a multimillion dollar trade deal to import it from the USSR to the US. Since then, Stoli's become a sentimental favorite; even today, it's one of the few Russian consumer products to make its way into Western homes. Made according to the traditional Russian methods, using pure grain filtered through birch charcoal and quartz sands, and then blended with pure spring water, "Stoly" is popular for its quality and slightly sweeter, oily taste and texture. The packaging remains a sterling example of Soviet kitsch.
Stolichnaya Salted Caramel Vodka
Stolichnaya Salted caramel Vodka offers the perfect balance of sweet and savoury. A creamy-silky textured mouth-feel, with a finish that is rich and warm with lingering caramelized sugar and English toffee notes, balanced with a light saltiness that draws out the caramel for a taste that is completely delicious.
