  • Moskovskaya use traditional filtration methods such as quartz sand and Charcoal to produce the highest quality liquid
  • Clean, delicate nose with hints of white pepper and lemon zest. Sweet and spicy taste with fresh and light flavour
  • Enjoy in a range of cocktails including the Mosko Mule with Ginger Beer and Lime

Difford's Guide says,3470171.jpgVodkaphiles reviews, here

3470171.jpgEven though it is sually overshadowed by its sister, Stolichnaya, Moskovskaya is still THE Russian vodka. And this is so because (1) it is made of rye, the most traditional vodka ingredient in Russia and Poland (see Wyborowa), without added spices, and (2) it is still made in accordance with the recommendations coming from the great Mendeleyev (the "Moscovite standard").
Moskovskaya's sweetness is genuine, not, like is the case with Stoli, due to the added sugar (oh, yes ... the famous Stoli, being made of wheat, needs some extra sugar).
A remarcable, traditional Russian vodka.The real stuff.

Not sure, give it a go.

I’d personally go for a bottle of Stolichnaya and stick it in the freezer.
I'm sure in Russia a bottle of this goes for 1 or 2 pounds.

No chance. Aclo with less than 40% is just rubbish.

Why lie? Why does 2% make all the difference? I don't get your attitude. I know Russians who only drink wine. So, are they drinking rubbish?

I'll try Amazon Pay now I'm back home (it's freezing out there - like winter!).

Okay, that was a waste of time. This comes up. Does it for both Amazon Pay and "regular" payment (cleared cookies).

The default shipping country on gourmetencasa is Spain, which is why it only charges £4-odd.
40852275-99vdk.jpgI should also point out I check alternative prices elsewhere before I post a Deal, and this comes up as an option. I knew it rung a bell.40852275-niLSS.jpg

The best Grey Goose-alike is the Kirkland Signature French Grain 1.75L bottle (can be had for around £30 sometimes) and many online speculate it's made by the same people. Doubt it, to be honest, but sis likes it. Oh, and Ignis French Grain is good (from Lidl).

She prefers Ciroc and Mamont.

We are talking about hard alko now. ,
This is not a Russian vodka, this is made under license by 3rd country.
So, taste and quality will never be the same. Exactly as you drink Stella in the UK or in Belgium - 2 different drinks/tastes.

BIG difference!
The same as you buy stolichnaya (made in latvia) - taste of acids but not vodka.

+ price of pack of headache tablets for the morning = same/similar price.
Stolichnaya is Latvian Vodka and this one too. You need to consider before 1991 Latvia was part of Russia, so everything was Russian before that. In UK shops you have just few kinds of Vodka's which is shame (Smirnoff, Standart, Stoli…. and cheap ones too. They have much better vodka's which taste better. Try to drink Babicka vodka that has really nice taste of Vodka (I would suggest how vodka should taste like). I have tried Grey Goose nothing special is too smooth there is missing the kick what vodka brings. In St Petersburg they drinking Standard Vodka with caramel it taste nice . The caramel is something similar as the syrups you put in your coffee at Starbuck. Try Zubrovka with Apple Juice. You can worm the apple juice with cinnamon and add vodka in it. It taste like good homemade apple strudel cake. The problem with this you loose control when to stop "Eating it"

Yep this man knows his stuff. There are many ways how to drink it just depends on your taste buds. And Inga is a woman from Latvia that pretends to be a massive vodka expert. 😄

Are you stalking me?😁😁😁 If you are Geographically educated that Latvia is near Russia
vodka can be made from literally anything - there’s a scottish vodka made from commercial oil by-products.

No, I just want to say, that any hard alcohol which is less than 40% , is crap, making you to feel sick and have a bad hungover.. unfortunately. 37 isn't as 40

My sister got hers today (so Amazon delivery times are good for this, though maybe it applies as a "food item"). Will edit this post with her thoughts when she cracks it open, her birthday is in just over a week.

how so?

and why does that only apply to spirits and not cider or beer?

is it because it's completely fabricated?
Bit late to update but my sister has tried this on her birthday (kept forgetting to ask) and she really loved it! She likes the smooth vodkas so I'd say this is likely typical of her taste.
I would repost this but as it didn't seem to be popular (and attracted some unexpected bickering!) I won't bother. But FYI, this is £2 cheaper from Amazon now - not sure why they have the medicines/pharmacy badge for a bottle of vodka!41113209-xTwMd.jpg
