Moskovskaya , whose names means "Moscow vodka", is one of the oldest brands of Russian vodka. It was first created by the Vodka Monopoly of the Russian Empire in 1894. In 1910, Moskovskaya received the designation of "Osobennaya", meaning special, from the Emperor. Its recipe was patented by the Russian government and Russian soldiers were even given bottles of Moskovskaya to celebrate the end of WWII during their parade through the Red Square.
This vodka has been produced in the same facility since 1900 and is made using only traditional ingredients in the classic Russian method. They take the finest grain and blend it with purified water, allowing the mixture to ferment for three days. Afterwards, the liquid is triple-distilled to offer consumers the purest vodka possible. There is no fuss in a recipe this simple, just vodka. The triple filtration using quartz sand, charcoal, and quartz sand again, results in a satisfying vodka with character.
Vodka, in Russian, is the diminutive form of voda, meaning water. Enjoy this little water however you see fit. Moskovskaya vodka is best enjoyed simply, either chilled or on the rocks. Try it with the classic vodka pairings such as blinis and caviar to get a taste of what has been and continues to remain perfect since 1894.
