Stolichnaya // Latvia
Relaunched in late 2017, Stoli Gold has changed their recipe as well as updated their bottle. The vodka is based on 100% single-estate Gubernator Dona winter wheat. The water used in this vodka has been filtered through shungite, a meteoric rock found in the Tambov region in Russia. The vodka is filtered like their standard Stoli, through Russian birch charcoal and quartz sand, but it also is filtered through coils of gold thread. Available first in travel retail at Heathrow and Dubai airports with a wider release expected thereafter.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
