Information about Vodka Faberge
The subjects of his Easter eggs as amazing creations in which were
combined the genius of an inventor, the divine gift of a jeweler,
filigree technique and audacious, limitless fantasy-were always
unique, and each egg concealed a new surprise.
In 1885, Karl Faberge became the official purveyor of the imperial
court, and 5 years later, in 1890, received the high title of
Appraiser of the Office of His Imperial Majesty, and also acquired
the status of Hereditary Honorable Citizen.
Empress Mary Fyodorovna, after receiving one of many Easter eggs as
a gift from jeweler Karl Gustavovich Faberge, the main purveyor to
the imperial court, wrote in a letter to her sister, the Queen of
England, "Faberge is simply a genius of our time."
Faberge's works received the highest rewards at international
exhibitions, and royalty from throughout Europe and even Siamese
kings collected them.
We have combined two symbols of Russia into one: a jewelry
egg-vessel and the national beverage, vodka. Continuing Karl
Faberge's work and following Russian cultural traditions, we have
created a product whose splendid form fully corresponds to the
quality of its content. And we guarantee every drop.
The production of glass items (carafes and glasses) was
entrusted to an old Italian factory where the secrets of producing
famous Venetian glass were passed on from generation to generation
since the 12th century.
The small glasses with an uncommon relief d?cor are manually made. The relief gilding is one of the most complicated stages and is fulfilled by an experienced old enterprise. The d?cor elements are plated with 24 karat gold. A graceful and elegant golden eagle completes the composition. A most famous Florentine master, who has been working in the Vatican at the invitation of the Pope for more than 30 years, worked on its development. Producing of the eagle and gilding of glass requires laborious manual work.
The set consists of
a corbel that is fixing four glasses and a decorative cap for the
carafe. The corbel and cap are gilded in a galvanic bath. A large
red glass crystal adorns the cap. A special source of pride is the
graceful and elegant gold eagle, which completes the composition.
One of the most famous Florentine masters, who for more than 30
years has been working at the invitation of the Pope in the Vatican,
worked on its development. Producing the eagle and gilding glass requires manual work.
Thanks to the painstaking labor of many talented masters, we are
able to present to you a true masterpiece: "Imperial Collection"
vodka. Today, "Imperial Collection" vodka is a diamond in precious
mounting. It is unique and inimitable. The history of the great
state of Russian returns to us in a new guise. Noble beauty is
embodied in an exclusive form, preserving and augmenting with great
care the traditions of Russian art.
Manufacture and Detail of Imperial Collection Vodka:
The production of vodka is a complex process consisting of several technological stages, on each of which depends the quality of the final product. Vodka originated in the south of Russia, in a zone with a favorable mild climate, far from industry, where the best types of wheat grow. It is believed that "grain wine" (an alternate name for vodka) appeared and was actively produced for the first time in grain-producing regions, i.e., in the territory of the present Rostov Kursk, Oryol, Tambovo, Voronezh, and Saratov regions.
Wheat has historically been cultivated in these territories, and remarkable types have been grown that satisfy very demanding tastes. By an edict of Catherine the Great, only nobles were permitted to distill and produce vodka. Russian nobles strove to achieve the best quality at any price, and the types of wheat from which vodka was prepared were usually family secrets.
Unfortunately, those secrets
have since been lost. However, contemporary types also meet high standards. Experts select grain with high starch content and
outstanding organoleptic characteristics. The "Saratov" type of
wheat, for example, which is used in the production of alcohol for
"Imperial Collection" vodka, meets these standards.
Wheat is sent from the south of the country to the west, to the ancient Russian city of Smolensk, where the merchant P.A. Machulsky established an alcohol plant in 1871. It has always been famous for its high-quality production and has earned numerous prizes and awards at competitions and exhibitions.
Today the latest
achievements in the field of alcohol production are used at the
plant. Key technological processes are fully automated. The grain of
the wheat is thoroughly cleaned before the production process.
Sterilization and other technologies make it possible to reduce the
quantity of by-products of fermentation, and during the subsequent
4-step purification of alcohol, all impurities such as fusel oils,
ethers, aldehydes, acids, and methanol are separated one-by-one from
the ethyl alcohol, resulting in very high quality.
The uniqueness of the purification process lies in the fact that the residual concentrations of the impurities in the alcohol are a small fraction of the values permitted by the State Standards Agency (GOST) for deluxe type alcohol. The technological subtleties represent the achievements of our specialists and are not to be divulged. In the next stage, the alcohol obtained is sent to the modern "Ladoga" facility, where "Imperial Collection" vodka is made. In the preparation of vodka, water from Ladoga lake undergoes an eight-step purification process.
Then the vodka passes through a specially-made, highly active birchwood carbon developed by Russian scientists, which has better adsorptive characteristics than the activated carbon that is traditionally used for the removal of impurities that are formed with the interaction of alcohol with water, as well as for softening and the formation of taste and aroma.
Then the vodka passes through a silver filter, which gives it medicinal properties, and finally through a membrane filter to give it
ideal transparency and luster.
The aristocratic taste of "Imperial Collection" vodka is characterized by softness and velvetiness. Experts will know how to recognize the bouquet of subtle, hardly perceptible nuances of sweet, astringent, sour and bitter.
The vodka has ideal transparency
and a precious diamond-like luster. "Imperial Collection" vodka is
the best gift for true connoisseurs.
Nowadays, true Russian vodka connoisseurs have the opportunity to taste and enjoy the same delicious vodka taste the Russia Kings once did.
When you try Czar’s Gold for the first time,
you play a small part in the history of our great country.
When a beverage remained in one of these “golden goblets” for same time it was believed that it gained the power to grant a person nobility and youth.
Sometimes, as a sign of his good will, The King would offer a Boyar or another special guest a drink from one of his magical chalices.
Tradition dictated that when a person was blessed in such a way they were expected to drain the goblet in one drink, keep their balance, and give a low and respectful bow to the monarch who had shown them such kindness.
For a long time The Russian King’s
vodka recipe had been kept a secret. But now in Saint Petersburg,
the former capital of the Russian empire, we have recaptured the
original “Czar’s Gold” taste and made it accessible to the
contemporary vodka connoisseur.
One of the most interesting ideas was to recreate the original vodka taste that had been served to the Romanov family for more than 200 years. In those days the precious beverage was intended only for the most elite government members, but ironically, it would later be the government itself who expressed the idea that the drink should be made available for all the connoisseurs of Russian vodka.
Ladoga’s “Czar’s Gold” vodka ended up opening the anniversary collection for this special ceremonial date. It won the strong drinks competition and became the official drink of the northem capital’s anniversary.
It was presented in all the most important
festival events, and even served to President of Russia himself. And
in 2006, “Czar’s Gold” received the special privilege of becoming
the official of the G8 Summit. It stood on the tables of the leading world powers gathered at Konstatinovsky Palace in Streina.
The numerous medals and prizes it has been awarded serve as
indisputable evidence that “Czar’s Gold” is one of the world’s best
The secret of the vodka’s unique and smooth taste is in the high-quality of the ingredients we use, as well as softness of our natural water. We also use a complex, and prolonged distilling process to make our vodka as pure as possible.
Only natural products are used in the production of Czar’s Gold, and we use water from the pristine and glacial Lake Ladoga to ensure that our vodka is as flawless as possible. When this water is being prepared for production it passes through several stage of our advanced filtering system which uses natural resources such as high-silica sand and birch adsorptive coal to make our vodka pure.
To produce Czar’s Gold we use a first-class alcohol base composed of natural grain and wheat products. Czar’s Gold is famous for its mild taste and delicate aroma which have a hint of lime and honey.
Before the vodka is bottled, it is given some time to “rest” as it gathers its tender and neutral taste. Czar’s Gold is unique in that it actually passes through special filters modified with gold flakes.
The vodka becomes enriched with ions of 24-carat
gold and acquired the rejuvenating effect that once so appreciated
by the Russian Kings. The Czar’s Gold bottle itself is made to
resemble the ancient chalices of old with its gold-matted design and
heraldic symbols of nationality.
The Czar’s Gold vodka bottles themselves differ from others not only with their original design but also because they are made from a special material. They are constructed using a cutting-edge pharmaceutical glass from Germany that keeps the original vodka taste fresh.
Furthermore, the advanced shrink-wrap on the neck of the bottle guarantees corking integrity. And, finally, the solid sparger keeps the precious drink safe so that you can enjoy it to the last, golden drop.
