Although this product is today produced in Great Britain, their is an anecdote concerning the products heritage that is almost certainly apocraphal. As Revolution overturned the Russian Empire, Vladimir Smirnoff, head of Russia's leading distillery and exclusive purveyor of Vodka to the Czar, was arrested and sentenced to death by firing squad. Very luckily for Vladimir, and for the future of the spirits industry, the prison was stormed by White Russian troops just before his execution was to be carried out. He managed to flee to Poland, carrying with him the only two assets he had left: his name and the formulae for vodka which had made his family famous. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, it at last became possible for the successors of Vladimir Smirnoff to return to Russia and explore the roots of their product.
They studied the old methods of distillation, the small copper pot-stills which the Smirnoff family had originally used to produce small batches of fine vodka for the Imperial household. Then, using highest quality native Russian grain, and pure Russian silver birch charcoal as a filtering agent, they produced an extraordinary product, a style of vodka which has not been tasted since the days of the Czars.
This vodka has a unique "silken" feel, and rich, mellow undertones. A vodka to be sipped and savoured. Drink Smirnoff Black neat, or with a little ice. 40% alc./vol. No tasting notes available.
