His experience, passion and dedication made it possible to create a unique vodka concept.

Without question, one of the fastest growing segments of the wines and spirits industry is white spirits and particularly vodka. Inspired by his home country Russia and driven by his passion for the finest things in life, Dr. Mark Kauffman has worked for 5 years to produce this worlds finest and only genuine luxury vodka. The innovative production concept and design elevate this vintage vodka to the same aspirational levels as the finest cognacs, whiskies and wines.

To produce the worlds finest vodka Mark decided on certain selection criteria. First, it should come from only one vintage when the finest wheat grains are identified and selected prior to meticulous multiple distillation. When choosing the wheat grains Mark selected the seven best for the production of wheat regions in Russia. Within each of these regions a single field was chosen. The choice of regions will vary from year to year depending on the quality of wheat production. Second, to ensure consistency, guarantee quality, and retain continuity of style there should be only one bottling per vintage. Third, strictly limited quantity should be produced and only in the years when the grain quality justifies the production of the luxury vodka. Thus, only 25,000 bottles of Kauffman Luxury Vintage Russian Vodka with each bottle carrying the limited edition bottle number are produced annually. Finally, Mark worked with the worlds most innovative designer to produce a bottle which would incarnate Russia's future rather than its past. This bottle is a symbol of modern Russia - the country that is integrating with the rest of the world and is truly becoming one of the Global Powers. The packaging is truly inspirational and contributes to the idea of the product of the XXI century.

All the above makes Kauffman Luxury Vintage Russian Vodka the most exclusive and the only genuine vintage vodka in the world.

I have just tasted this Vodka not ten minutes ago, forget all the fancy so called premium Vodkas that you see on supermarket shelves. If you want a Vodka of the purest distinction then Kauffman is for you.

Despite the outrageous price-tag, this is probably the best vodka money can buy.
