Yep. We talked about those one before here:

$20 is a lot for 100ml of vodka but it might make an interesting addition to someone's collection.

there are no Cyrillic letters on that "genuine" RUSSIAN product on it?! :wink:


Any body else concerned that they give them alcohol up there? :shock:

I agree with Housil-

An English label likely means it's a novelty item made for commercial sale.

The lack of cyrillic markings is because the product used was for export.
If you buy a bottle of Stoli, out side Russia, any kind they don't have the cyrillic on them.

If you buy vodka for local consumption (Moskovkaya, etc...) their lablels and everything is in cyrillic. :D

Stolischnaya vodka is mostly for export....tht's why it has everything, well almost everything in english.

Probably some of the astronauts in the ISS have enjoyed the cosmonaut's drink of excellence.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Salud!...Prost!!!...Dabai!....Kampaii!!....
Enjoy!

Peace!
