Is it vodka?

No, it is not vodka! To produce moonshine the technology of distillation is used that fundamentally differs from the technology of vodka. Distillation is an older and more expensive technology.

“Kosogoroff’s Moonshine №5” is manufactured after a classic technology of distilling of the new grape wine. As the result of double distillation and the following blending we receive an unrepeatable taste and a unique saturated aroma of moonshine with strength of 40 “turns”. Using this technology are produced such legendary and popular all around the world drinks as grappa, whiskey, tequila, rum and so on.

The equipment for distillation is produced from copper by the Swiss company ArnoldHolstein. It allows catalyzing the production of substances, which formulate the aroma.

Who is Kosogoroff?

Kosogoroff is a soldier that has gone through the Russian-Turkish War of the 1877-1878.

After the war he has produced the classic grape moonshine of very high quality.

In the modern times we succeeded in finding by miracle preserved unique composition and in the year 2003 resumed the production of the legendary drink.

In 2012, mostly thanks to the perseverance of the Kosogoroff’s descendants, who have once emigrated from Russia to Europe, we started to widen the geography, to enable a person appreciating the quality to purchase and deservedly evaluate the unrepeatable taste and the unique saturated aroma of “Kosogoroff’s Moonshine №5”.

In 2013 we have chosen our path in Europe.

How to drink moonshine?

It is recommended to drink “Kosogoroff’s Moonshine №5” at room temperature and from a specialized glass – it is something between the vodka glass and the tulip glass.

This type of glass is able to convey precisely the saturation of aroma and taste. However, the traditional glass will be appreciated. Many people enjoy it pure after the meal or during the change of dishes. Also, it is not swallowed in a gulp as vodka. You should agree that if You pay for a drink with the grape aroma, it would be good to enjoy this aroma.

For those, who does not enjoy strong drinks, pure moonshine might be disliked! This is the reason for developing of a row of tasty cocktails.
