Smirnoff Vodka 1.75L
Pure, clean and smooth with a pleasing texture and classic aromas. Light charcoal, citrus, flower flavors. Distilled three times from American grains. Great for mixed drinks.
Pyotr Smirnov, the man behind the mask, is responsible for what has come to be known as the world’s #1 vodka. Born as a serf in Russia, Smirnov lived out a true rags-to-riches story by becoming one of Russia’s richest men by the time of his death in 1998 (his fortune was worth more than $130 million at that time).
He began making vodka in 1964, using only the finest ingredients to make his brand of vodka the most prestigious. To market his product, he became one of the first people to advertise in newspaper ads and even made charitable donations to the clergy to keep them from preaching anti-vodka sermons. One of the best parts about Smirnoff’s story, though, is the ingenious way that Smirnov got the vodka into the best bars around Russia.
The story is that in one of Moscow’s poorest neighborhoods, Smirnov invited panhandlers into his home for food and drink before sending them out on a mission. After being wined and dined, their mission was to spread out and go to the bars in the area, demanding Smirnoff vodka. Soon, sales were booming and Smirnoff was a staple around Russia. Smart man.
Smirnoff survived through periods of political unrest and factory strikes in Russia, and later was introduced to Europe in the 1920s and America shortly after that. It is now a best selling brand on both sides of the Atlantic, being sold in over 130 countries.
One of my bottles was wet at the lid. All your packing was also wet about halfway through. Second time this has happened and I did mention it in a review, before. This was a shipped order so you might want to look into this matter.
very nice, shipping was a little expensive but I guess 4-5 bottles would add up!!!!!
I was really glad the bottles were plastic, I was worried about them getting broken. I am happy with my purchase, but it took a really long time to get it. I will put in another order since Pennsylvania has still not opened the wine and spirit stores to the public. Thank you!!!
Loved that I was able to order, being in PA, and our stores are not open. Website was really easy to navigate, and I really liked how every bottle was wrapped like a cocoon !! Will definitely order again !
