Vodka Tasting at Cristall Distillery

When in Russia…
Russians firmly believe that vodka was created on their land, and commercial production was firmly established by the 14th century. Its history is interesting. In 1540, Czar Ivan the Terrible took a break from beheading his enemies and established the first government vodka monopoly. Distilling licenses were handed out to nobles and all other distilleries were banned. As a result, moonshining then became common practice. Vodka production became an integral part of Russian society as Aristocratic landowners operated stills on their estates and produced high-quality vodkas flavored with everything from acorns to horseradish and mint. In Russia today, vodka production has returned to the pre-Revolutionary roots and high-quality brands are once again being produced for the social elite as well as for export, while the more mainstream brands are still being widely consumed. You’ll have the option to sample exotic local vodkas under the direction of a specialist who will explain the traditions and food pairings. Traditional Russian hors d’oeuvres will accompany the vodka, and guests will also see the equipment used for production, including barrels, glasses and original clay pots. Through the knowledge of onsite experts, learn how Russians properly drink a shot, discover your flavor preferences and get a glimpse into this longstanding tradition.

“Have highly recommended Roadtrips to others and will do so in the future.”

We loved our trip to Rio for the World Soccer Game all organized by Roadtrips. Roadtrips provided guides and excursions for us during our stay which were excellent. The two games we attended were very well organized with all our needs kept in mind and fulfilled. The people at Roadtrips were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. We would definitely take another trip in the future with this company and have highly recommended Roadtrips to others and will do so in the future.
