Stolichnaya Gold

An excellent vodka and only $5.00 more than regular Stoli. Well worth the difference. So smooth and delicious. Makes a wonderful Martini.

Sure Shot Vodka

New vodka for the Canadian market; made in Saskatchewan. It's distilled 12 times, so it's incredibly inoffensive. With 1.5oz of product accompanied by a single ice cube; after allowing the ice cube to melt, there is no odour. Mouthfeel is slightly oily and smooth, taste is simplistic and as vodka should be. There is no back bite, burn, or bitterness. With no ice in shot form there is only a slight tingle for a burn and no aftertaste... again, it's distilled 12 times. A must try, best part is, it's inexpensive.

I love pinnacle 100% it's a smooth drink, I usually have a tough time stomaching vodkas, however, for the price and quality It's worth every penny. Every flavor so far that I have tried have made me love it more and more, so if you get the chance buy it, I promise it's worth it.

Banff Ice

I expected more. After drinking vodkas like Iceberg, or Finlandia (for the same price) this one just doesn't measure up. Pay a few dollars more to get a big jump in quality.
Reviewer: Mav 221 | Review this vodka


In the late 1970's I started drinking vodka and was a Stoli drinker. My dad said "daughter, try Luksusowa, a Polish potato vodka, it's better and much less expensive than Stoli." My Dad was a bartender at a high end Russian restaurant in Manhattan at one point in his life. He knew his spirits. He was correct! It's been my go-to vodka ever since. I've tried many others like Belvedere, GG, Tito's, Ketel, etc. but Luks beats them every time. Very smooth and almost creamy. Plus never gives me a hangover as grain alcohols tend to do. Bonus points for the very reasonable price!

How many times should vodka be distilled? And when does the quest for purity go too far?

The Little Water of Life

Many nations of the world have a singular drink that they have come to be identified with and that has come to be identified with them. For Russians (and Poles, Belarusans, Finns and Ukrainians), it is vodka.

Vodka on the Zakuska Table
Vodka on the Zakuska Table

Vodka is an essential part of the Russian zakuska table. When a liberal amount of the potent stuff is supplied to guests, the meal not only will be off to a fast start, but to a rollicking one as well.
