A classic ultra-premium Russian vodka, Stolichnaya Elit is made using freeze filtration, which involves filtering the vodka at -18 degrees Celsius. The result is a stunningly smooth vodka with an wonderful flavour of aniseed and spice.
Stolichnaya is a very well-known brand of vodka, which has its roots stretching back to 1901, though no one is really very sure of Stolichnaya’s exact date of birth - some say 1944, some say 1946, some say 1948, and there was a trademark patent dated 1938. So yes. it’s a rather contentious subject indeed. In 1972, Stolichnaya began to be imported to the United States by Pepsi, who were able to sell their soft drinks in the Soviet Union. Stoli (as it is colloquially known) is produced both in Russia and Latvia - two companies that produce it have disputed the ownership of the brand for years.
"Elit Vodka is crafted using Alpha Spirit, the highest grade of spirit recognized by the Russian authorities. Elit Vodka is set apart from all other vodkas, not only through the use of Alpha Spirit exclusively, but unique freeze-out filtration process – the final stage in its crafting. Inspired by the old Russian tradition of leaving casks outside in freezing winter conditions, they chill the liquid to exactly -18˚C; at this temperature, the liquid density increases and it moves through ion-charged carbon filters very slowly. This ensures the smallest impurities are captured and removed, leaving an exquisitely pure liquid.
After rigor comes rest. Our liquid is given time and space to return to ambient temperature. Unhurried, it acquires the hallmarks of molecular perfection: flawless clarity and density.
From its visible luminosity in the glass to its weighty, feeling in your mouth, Elit Vodka exerts a presence unlike any other vodka. Consistently commended as the highest rated vodka in the world* Elit Vodka elevates the vodka experience. For those who know better, Elit Vodka is vodka pleasure at its most precise."
