Beluga Gold Line Russian Vodka 

Top 10 Spirits 2012

Beluga Gold Line Russian Vodka is not your ordinary vodka, which is why it made our list of Top 10 Spirits


Vodka is supposed to be a neutral spirit, but it's hard to remain neutral about Beluga Gold. It stands out from the rest starting with its unique ingredients, including hyaline artesian water from the springs of Siberia, malt spirit, rice extract and rhodiola rosea extract. While few vodkas enjoy any sort of rest period (as in any business, time is money), the distiller insists on a whopping 90-day rest period so the spirit melds together. The result is worth the wait and the price. Warming, almost caressing to the nose, it is smooth, full-bodied, clean and crisp. As its flavors continue to evolve on the palate over time, we recommend you give it another rest period in your mouth.

Price: $150

This clear spirit may come from the Russian word for water, but the best vodkas pack a punch and taste far beyond anything that naturally springs from the earth.
