The Imperial Collection Faberge Egg pays homage to Russia's illustrious royal past

VODKA

Honoring the best in life takes time, patience, skill and good taste. The Peter Carl Fabergé-inspired decorative egg cases that house this premium Russian vodka pay homage to such greatness. Commissioned by the Russian Ladoga Group and based on the traditions of Russian high society, these classic works of art come in pearl, sapphire, ruby and emerald finishes, and hold four matching Venetian-glass shot glasses as well as the vodka decanter. The water used in the vodka's production is sourced from Lake Ladoga, the largest freshwater lake in Europe. Other local ingredients include wheat and rye. The spirit is distilled five times through birch charcoal and another few times through quartz sand. The last step is filtering the vodka through algae, its moisture adding further to the purification process. The smoothness is astonishing and to be expected from this unique, spare-no-expense vodka.

Price: $1,400
