What to expect

Vodka is the national Russian alcoholic drink. Vodka is neither an aperitif nor a digestive. It goes well with food, especially Russian food. It is pure and simple.

“The secret of vodka is in the right snack and good company. Vodka perfectly accompanies Russian dishes: pickled mushrooms, herring with boiled potatoes, different types of cured fat (salo in Russian).

A nation’s character is determined by food and drink and Russian people, like any other nation, instinctively reach for a drink that compliments the food on their table. Many Russians piously believe that vodka is healthier and cleaner than other spirits.

We mostly drink it straight, but we also make many wonderful cocktails with Vodka. We will share with you secrets of the best, tastiest and most fashionable Vodka based cocktails by the best Russian barmen.
