All great things start small, and you don’t know what’s gold until you’ve struck it! Siberian Express Vodka was born in the kitchen of a Russian house-hold in Strand, Western Cape, South Africa. The Surogin family has been living in South Africa for more than 20 years, which means that Evgeny had pretty much tasted every vodka on South African shelves in his years living here. As the stereotype says; a Russian man cannot part with his vodka – and this is somewhat true. Real Russian vodka is made from wheat grain that is at least triple distilled and filtered through activated carbon, milk and other natural filters.
