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.
Monk Isidore Vodka
Over the years, vodka has been refined and expanded upon. We believe that Monk Isidore had the perfect recipe all those years ago, and have strived to keep his story alive today. Using complex and traditional distilling methods, we have created a smooth and compelling drink that the famous monk would be proud of.
From Bread Wine
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.
