The brand was introduced in 1998 by Russian Standard, a company founded in 1992 by the businessman Rustam Tariko. The new product quickly established itself in the Russian premium vodka market as the first luxury brand with a Russian—as opposed to Soviet—identity.[1]
Two years after launch Russian Standard Original surpassed all imported premium vodkas on the Russian market. A broad international expansion was then launched. The Russian Standard Platinum was introduced in 2001, and the luxury brand Imperia in 2004.[2]
In 2005, global sales passed the 1,000,000 case mark.
In 2006, a new $60 million state-of-the-art distillery was opened in Saint Petersburg. The distillery occupies an area of 30,000 square meters. The facility produces 4 million cases per year, at a rate of 22,500 bottles per hour

70cl

And 40% volume which is stronger than some other vodkas which come in at 37.5%

For those who don't know. This is a great Vodka. Premium in Eastern Europe!! This is a very very good price, although I don't touch Vodka. Heat added

So do people think this is better or worse compared to Smirnoff?

V hot deal by the way

I personally don't like it for some strange reason as I am a vodka drinker and like most of them. But my friend things its excellent and a great price so voted hot

Stolichnaya is much better, but this is not bad at this price

I'm always worried about Vodka from Russia ever since that fake Russian vodka killed loads of people.

Great price heat added:)

Smirnoff is a truly awful vodka, this is far superior, of course that is just my opinion

Anything that is produced in quantities of over 20,000 bottles an hour has to taste like Paint Stripper! Oh wait its for Vodka, it does! :P

Better than Smirnoff, Absolut and definitely Stolichnaya. Not as good as Goose and Kettle One.

i prefer gray goose but kinda too expensive :P

If it's any comfort, you are not alone. I don't like it either. I'd rather have Absolut. But you can also buy me Grey Goose, or especially Ciroc, which is isn't even made from grain or potato.

Looks like this thread has been well and truly "goosed" lol

Same here, I think it tastes harsh.

All the talk of best vodka etc. is pretty much useless everybody has a different opinion, even the experts cant agree, the only thing they do agree on is that Smirnoff is terrible :-p.

Other than that the rankings chop and change between all the usual suspects depending on who you talk to.

End of the day its cheap for this brand so hot.

This stuff is good but I'd recommend to anyone who really likes vodka to try zubrowka.com/ - Polish bison grass vodka

Nad 84, nice profile pic. I DJ'd at the launch party of that album. Cracking bargain at this price.

Isn't Smirnoff an English vodka trying to advertise itself as Russian? Smirnoff is horrible imho regardless, RS is quite nice, even neat.

£11.50 in my co-op reduced from £13.50

Sadly some of my most treasured memories from my teen years involve Wyborowa. Haven't seen it for ages though.

Anyone ever tried Chase Vodka?

Its just owned by the British company Diageo

Asda stock it now. Thought i would buy some when it was £10 for a bottle. hope its not too bad :P?

Smirnoff has and always will be utter garbage that is barely any better than the likes of Vladivar, Red Square, Glens. Their marketing is just very clever.

I've found that Russian Standard is almost on a par with Absolut and Stolly.

Grey Goose, Sky etc are expensive vodkas so its hardly a fair comparison. In the Price range that Russian Standard operates, its the best.

Love it. Got some for tomorrow night.

£11.50 in my co-op reduced from £13.50



......and my two local Co-op's has any one actually bought it at the OP's price?

£11.50 up here as well, a massive 10p saving according to OP

Yeah, I think this may be a one off miss price. It did seem too good to be true.
Edited by: "Sancho" 30th Jul 2010

yup. seen at £11.50 down from £13.99 in 2 coops in barnsley

This is a fab vodka, Smir doesn't even come close! this stuff is up there with Absolut.

Cracking deal - if you can get it.

Stolichnaya is much better, but this is not bad at this price



Mmmmmm....Stoli! I love Stoli! Got a 1l bottle dirt cheap when I went on holiday to Greece. I'm drinking Absolut right now (1l bottle bought dirt cheap on holiday, too), which is also nice. Never been a Smirnoff fan. I'll have to go check this out, though.

Give me Glenn's any day, after a few shots they all taste the same anyway
