It is hard to believe that Russian Standard has only been around since 2007 in the UK. From its first launch it exploded onto the market and firmly positioned itself as a leading premium brand vodka. The brand originally created in 1998 by the Russian Standard company purports itself as being proudly Russian through and through: raw Russian materials as well as distilled and bottled in Russia. Within Russia it has a 40% market share selling more than 3 million cases per year.
