Gastronomic “Borshchevka” is the first craft gastronomic vodka in Russia. A guideline for its creation was the production technology of “noble vodka” – a drink that invariably accompanied the high-end snack table.
It was noble vodka that glorified Russia, it was given by Catherine the Great to the Swedish king Gustav, to the German king Frederick the Great, to philosophers Voltaire and Kant.
The strength of the drink is traditional for noble vodkas and drinks of that time – 38.5% ABV.
Vegetables and spices creating the taste of borsch – the most famous Russian dish in the world – formed the basis of taste and gave the name of the drink. The set of ingredients for the preparation of Borshchevka is unique, and the cabbage infusion has never been used before in the production of alcohol.
