Reserved for a highly selective clientele, the production of Kremlin Award vodka was highly regulated to ensure an exceptional product of unrivalled quality. Originally made to order for the Kremlin and in limited quantities, this vodka was prepared only upon the issuance of special orders from the Kremlin. Today, Kremlin Award vodka contains the finest that Russia's land has to offer. Made entirely with the best ingredients, preparation of this vodka requires unique know-how and expertise.
In 1936, Russia's greatest distillers convened for two years to research and develop a remarkable premium vodka. This search for perfection led them to refine and improve the original Kremlin Vodka recipe. In the laboratory of Unit No.1 in the prestigious Crystall distillery in Moscow, the authentic Kremlin Award vodka was born. Rigor and precision are needed and each batch of vodka undergoes a rigorous examination in order meet optimum quality standards. There are no less than three in sections that must be conducted: in the Crystall factory, in Unit No.1 and in the Kremlin laboratory.
Manufacturing Kremlin Award vodka requires the use of high-quality rectified alcohol, as well as pure artesian water that undergoes six steps of purification. An innovative filtration system allows the vodka to be refined to perfection while ensuring exceptional transparency and crystalline brilliance. The prepared vodka then rests for several months, during which time it acquires a rich, intense taste expressing every facet of its character.
