Stolichnaya Elit is a super-premium release from the hugely popular Stolichnaya brand - a true world class vodka. Handcrafted with 100% neutral grain to unprecedented perfection and exclusivity for the most discerning palate. Its sleek and elegant design hint at the quality it contains. Its distinctive shape helps it stand out in a crowd.
Elit's unmistakable purity is the result of the highest quality ingredients, centuries-old traditions and above all, a unique and revolutionary 'freezing' filtration process, specially developed and patented by the SPI Group. This expensive, labour and time consuming procedure filters the spirit at sub-zero temperatures reaching -18 C, so that the liquid's density increases causing all impurities to freeze against the walls of the filtration tanks. These unwanted crystalline substances are then discarded from the distillate, allowing the selection of nothing but the purist of spirits for their select formula of Elit. The result is a vodka like no other.

Tasting Note: Very neutral nose with faint hints of river rocks and custard. On the palate, a silky, effortless entry with a dryish body of sweet cream, talc, citrus and anise. Finishes clean and smooth with a sugar accent. Clean, pure flavours.
