Do you like your vodka Russian? If Russian provenance is important to you, Russian Standard vodka wants you to know its 100% Russian. The Russian Federation has ruled that to be labeled a Russian vodka, all ingredients must be grown, distilled, and bottled in Russia and Russian Standard Vodka is one of the first vodkas in the U.S. that will carry a special label with a unique number declaring its 100% Russian provenance.
"We are proud to display our Certificate of Origin as a guarantee of Russian Standard Vodka's quality and provenance," said Roustam Tariko, founder and president of Russian Standard Vodka in a press release. "In today's world, consumers value authenticity and production origin highly in their choice of brands. Just as superb French and Italian products are awarded Appellation d'origine controlee and Denominazione di Origine Controllata, or a Cuban cigar holds the coveted Habanos D.O.P., Russia, the homeland of vodka, also must guarantee its national drink. Our Certification of Origin will help vodka lovers distinguish Russian Standard from the many vodka brands that pretend to be Russian, but are not."
