In today’s saturated premium spirits market, what is a devoted vodka drinker is looking for? Hardly a new flavor or an inventive name. What they are craving is purity, taste and reliability. And, perhaps as an added bonus, a hangover-free product. Regalia Vodka, distilled and bottled in Russia, will deliver all of that.
Regalia is produced by the state-controlled (read: strict adherence to the highest standards of quality) distillery of Yaroslavl, an ancient city located in close proximity of Moscow, Russia’s capital. Yaroslavl, blessed by its location on the Volga River, has long been the largest transportation center of the European part of Russia. Heaps and heaps of select wheat grain passed through the city, with the cream of the crop retained for making vodka, that elixir of a grand Russian feast.
Today, Regalia is still made in strong adherence to the recipe created by the master distiller 300 years ago. Only select wheat grown in the black soil region of the Russian South is used for fermentation. After the grains are sorted, they are finely mashed and fermented, preparing them for a 5-time distillation process that produces a clear, odorless “Luxe”-grade spirit.
The spirit is the soul of any vodka, but the body of a vodka is its water. We at “Regalia” pump it through an artesian shaft that penetrates some 1,500 feet deep inside the earth. Then, we use the most advanced technology available to rid it of the tiniest impurities. Due to its subterranean origin, the water that is mixed with our fine “Luxe”-grade spirit carries a variety of essential microelements, and a radiant aura of energy from deep in the earth’s core.
Once the spirit and the water are blended to reach a perfect equilibrium of a 40% alcohol content, the resulting mix goes through a 5-stage purification process to ensure the highest clarity and taste standards for the final product. A succession of quarts sand and birch charcoal filters get rid of the smallest impurities, and that is where most distillers would stop.
