Russian Standard Vodka is made based on the original recipe from 1894, by Dmitri Meneleev. To guarantee a soft and particularly mild taste, only the finest winter wheat is used in combination with clear glacier water. Malachite Edition is inspired by the dark green mineral rock malachite. This became a symbol of pure luxury through the Romanov dynasty, which is exactly what this edition is meant to reflect. Furthermore, the goal was to present modern Russia in the form of the standard Russian vodka. Tasting notes:Color: Clear. Nose: Smooth, fresh, harmonious aromas. Taste: Soft and smooth notes.
