About this deal

Bottled at 40% abv, Romanov Dynasty Edition celebrates two great cultures and their interwoven history, France and Russia. Not only by standing out from the rest but also by the virtue of honoring a great moment in time, and the spirit that got us there. Triple-distilled from wheat and filtered through silver, it's made in Kazakhstan, the country where these brave dogs were launched into space from.

This dynamic duo of dogs ventured out into space aboard the Sputnik, orbiting Earth 18 times before safely landing. Recently-formed brand management company Ellustria is set to unveil three new expressions – a gin, vodka and a Cognac-based spirit. Also joining the portfolio is Il Dottore gin, inspired by Venetian doctors battling the black plague with gin-based remedies.The real Belka and Strelka, preserved via taxidermy, reside at the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics in Moscow. Drawing in consumers from both the standard and premium segments, by either being a craft product or of better value. That is why when there were plans to introduce this Kazakhstan made vodka , we soon found inspiration in the stars. It's a great story, and a killer pub fact, but what you probably don't know is that they also have an entire spirit dedicated to their brave deeds.

For a limited time only, you'll be able to claim 10% off from March until June 2018 at drinksupermarket.After establishing the origin of this vodka’s story we wanted to create a design that would stand out from its comrades. The vodka needed to feel like a poster; a poster that paid homage to this fantastical and heroic story. The long connection between the Royal Navy and rum can be traced back to 1655 and Vice-Admiral William Penn's expedition to the West Indies. This dynamic duo of dogs ventured out into space aboard the Sputnik 5 back in August 1960, orbiting Earth 18 times before safely landing. Although they may be dogs, these brave animals gave hope and inspiration to the future of mankind, they went to space and back in 1960 aboard Sputnik 5.

Unfortunately, she died from overheating within the first seven hours of the five-month mission—a detail that was not made public until 2002. It's an extremely versatile vodka that has been created in the same pioneering spirit that helped pave the way for Belka and Strelka's heroism. You might know the story of Belka and Strelka: two stray dogs who were plucked from the streets of Moscow, trained up and fired into space from Kazakhstan.The Ellustria brand portfolio stands for re-imagining beverages and to do so we want to ensure that their stories are heard! This triple distilled vodka is made in Kazakhstan with the same heroic spirit as the brave space dogs. Their survival was cause for celebration, Soviet pride, and a whole lot of commemorative tchotchkes, ranging from candy tins to plates to porcelain figurines. The rocket-shaped Belka-and-Strelka vodka jugs pictured were sculpted in the wake of their flight in the Russian village of Gzhel, a town outside Moscow that has been known for its folk ceramics since the early 19 th century.

You'll struggle to find a cocktail or mixer it won't go perfectly with, but we prefer to add a shot of it to an ice cold glass of Fentimans Curiosity Cola, a mix otherwise known to you and us as "Curious Cosmonauts". From the Vodka you can expect some Peppery notes at the forefront infused with hints of Citrus Lemon and an Earthy undertone. Belka and Strelka orbited the earth 18 times aboard Sputnik 5 on 19th August 1960 before landing safely back on earth as canine heroes. This Kazakhstan vodka is named after the world's first cosmonauts, two dogs who were launched into space from Baikanur in Kazakhstan.The White Russian was first mixed up back in 1949 when Gustave Tops, a Belgian bartender, dreamt up two luxurious cocktails, the Black and the White Russian. Bottled in France, the spirit drink blends together the “softest vodka with luxuriously complex” eau-de-vie de Cognac.
