Snow Queen Vodka

Top 10 Vodkas

Snow Queen Vodka is produced in Kazakhstan from organic wheat

Origin: Kazakhstan; $43

As the Snow Queen on the bottle beckons you in for a taste, our advice is simple: comply with her wishes and you will be rewarded with a superbly crafted, smooth and uncompromisingly clean vodka. Produced in Kazakhstan from organic wheat, and utilizing artesian spring water draining off the Himalayas, this vodka is distilled five times to remove any minor impurities. The use of Kazakh birch charcoal is unique to Snow Queen and produces a light, mellow and uncommonly refreshing mouthfeel. The craftsmanship is obvious and of the highest grade, as the vodka’s natural smoothness on the palate can attest. This is a superb vodka, which, by the way, just so happens to be organic.
