The Legend

History credits the creation of vodka to a 15th Century Russian Orthodox monk called Isidore. Located in the Chudov Monastery in Moscow, he created his concoction based upon his exceptional knowledge of distillation processes.

From Bread Wine

to vodka

Known originally as “bread wine”, Monk Isidore’s creation was produced over many years for the Grand Duchy of Moscow, who was a huge fan of the drink.

Isidore’s “bread wine” was later coined as “Vodka” in 1751 by Empress Elizabeth. The rest, as they say, is history.
