Notes: This over-proof vodka, Smirnoff Vodka Silver 90 comes with a silver label so it stands out from the rest. Smirnoff applies its proven triple distillation process, then filters the spirit 10 times to remove impurities and make it smooth to the taste. The 90-proof vodka is odorless, colorless and tasteless. It's ready to be poured in a glass over ice or mixed in a cocktail.
Smirnoff got its start in the mid-19th century when Piotr Arseneevich Smirnov began distilling vodka, and later became the official vodka-maker for the tsar and his court with the label Purveyor of the Imperial Court. His grandson left town under duress during the Bolshevik revolution and set up shop in France under the name Smirnoff. The name has remained since that time, but the label continues to innovate with new flavors. It's pure vodka still remains as a gold standard and is best kept on hand.
