The practice of drinking vodka with mixers and ice is wholly western in origin. There is no cocktail culture in Eastern Europe. They drink their Vodka straight and therefore look for natural flavor and mouth feel from the raw vodka. It's with this in mind that we have created Medoyeff Vodka, the first Russian-American vodka.
Using what he learned from his visits to Russian and Ukrainian vodka distilleries years ago, our head distiller uses a combination of charcoal and limestone to slowly filtering every drop of Medoyeff. This process removes any impurities, while retaining the natural character of the spirit. In fact, the limestone actually imparts a subtle minerally character to the finish that adds to the overall taste and complexity of
Medoyeff. The resulting spirit is so unmistakably Russian you're libel to shout "Na zdorovje" after just a sip.
