Stolichnaya 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.

While others have tried to imitate Russian vodka production techniques, they have never totally succeeded. There are three key elements that separate Stoli from its imitators. First, Stoli is distilled from winter wheat, which is the best tasting wheat, not from corn or other grains. Produced in Russia's oldest distillery, its is considered the classic Russian vodka. Second, virtually all domestic vodka producers use processed water to reduce the product to its proper proof, while the makers of Stoli use the purest, softest glacial waters. Last Stoli is carefully filtered through both quartz and activated charcoal, then through quartz again.
