Stolichnaya, the most prestigious vodka brand in the world reveals it's prized possession, Elit. Discover a remarkable combination of elegance and mystique. Nobility and purity. Prestige and pleasure. Elit's unmistakable purity is the result of the highest quality ingredients, centuries-old traditions and above all, a unique and revolutionary 'freezing' filtration process, specially developed and patented by the SPI Group.
This expensive, labor and time consuming procedure filters the spirit at sub-zero temeratures reaching -18 C, so that the liquid's density increases causing all impurities to freeze aagainst the walls of the filtration tanks. These unwanted crystalline substances are then discarded from the distillate, allowing the selection of nothing but the purist of spirits for their select formaula of Elit. The result is a vodka like no other. A rare spirit that ranks among the finest and smoothest in the world, Elit.
Tasting vodka is different from tasting other alcoholic drinks (including wine) because we are looking for an absence of flavour in vodka. Vodka is alcohol in it's purest form and the less flavour the better. Cheaper vodkas can have a pronounced burn on the back of the throat (the finish) due to a faster and cheaper filtration.
Stolichnaya Russian Capital Vodka is a Russian vodka produced from wheat and rye grains in Tambov a town 500kms Southeast of Moscow located in the Black Earth Region of Russia. This region has long been known as the bread-basket of Russia and has a long history of growing grain and vodka production. It's this blend of grain that gives Stolichnaya its spicy finish, something particular to Russian vodkas.
Artesial well water is added to these grains to begin the fermentation which takes about 60 hours. Once fermemtation is complete the resulting liquid is distilled four times to a strength of 96.4% ABV. This spirit, is then diluted to bottling strength with more artesial well water which ultimately gives the vodka its smoothness. Finally its filtered through quartz sand, then activated charcoal, and finally through woven cloth. It is affectionately called Stoli!
Stolichnaya has its origins in the Moscow State Wine Warehouse No. 1 which was opened in 1901 by the authorities to ensure higher quality vodka production. Since 2001, Stolichnaya trademark has been an object of a dispute between the SPI Group and the government of Russia.
