Stolichnaya was founded in 1901. The vodka comes from the roots in the fertile black soil of Russia 's Tambov region where the Stolichnaya farms lie. Here the finest wheat is the treasured reward for a years hard work and the key to Stoli's gentle and grainy taste. It is distilled three times to ensure the bold character of Russian wheat. Only the highest alpha spirit is allowed to leve the distillery gates.
The vodka is filtered four times, first through quartz sand and then through the charcoal of Russian birch wood. Finally it is belnded with pure, natural spring water from the Balzams' artesian well.
