4. Russo-Baltique Vodka (Old) by Dartz Cars
This story about this Vodka commenced in the city of Riga at the RUSSO-BALTIQUE Railway Car Factory located at Valmieras Street. Back in the day, this factory was one of the largest car manufacturer in the world and for good reason. Even famous Rolls-Royce produced less cars than RUSSO-BALTIQUE.
In the past, PR techniques were not as advanced as today’s techniques. Andrey Nagel, a Russian journalist, simply had to drive the car to make business. In December 31, 1911, in the frosty winter evening, he started his car made in Russo-Balt and made his way directly to Monaco. It was winter and Prince Louis of Monaco decided to hold a rally so that to enliven the winter life of the city-casino. It should be kept in mind that it was the year of 1911 and then cars were not equipped with heating equipment and wind screens as well. His way to Monaco Nagel drove by cabriolet.
There were many articles about the carriage and skill of the crew as well as about the quality and reliability the car. However, there was a tiny detail that had never appeared in the press: workers from RUSSO-BALTIQUE presented Nagel a small flask with vodka, the Russo-Baltique Vodka (Old). The vodka assisted the crew to meet their targeted goals set. Of course, the crew did not confine themselves to consuming only one flask. But this flask was kept in Nagel’s breast pocket and it was the exact duplicate of the car’s radiator guard.
On the square in front of the Prince’s Palace of Monaco, Prince Louis rewarded the participants of the rally. The crew from RUSSO-BALTIQUE received three awards and one of them was for the longest route completed. Upon Nagel’s return to Russia, he was awarded the Order of St.Anne 3rd cl. by Tsar Nicholes II.
In 2008, 100 years have passed since the RUSSO-BALTIQUE Factory was established and, therefore, a decision was made to commemorate the centenary. An order and financing to held the commemoration activities came from the steppes of Kazakhstan because the extravagant daughter of an oilman from Kazakhstan decided to find a use for the dad’s money. There was made a solution to launch a new product under the name of RUSSO-BALTIQUE VODKA and thus create a new family of RELIQUE VODKA brand.

1. Billionaire Vodka
Price: $3.7 million
The most expensive Vodka in the Universe, designed by luxury Leon Verres. The distillation process is strictly confidential and the bottle is covered with thousands of sparkling diamonds and Swarovski.
The vodka has been concocted for the uber rich and therefore carries a befitting price tag of a whopping $3.7 million. Mr. Verres is the same man who came out with the immensely popular worlds most expensive champagne called, Billionaire Champagne and has now introduce the most expensive Vodka in the world. Each of these stunning bottles carry up to five liters of exclusive vodka that has been developed using a secret Russian recipe. The entire manufacturing process revolves around distilling of wheat as well as pure water after which the resultant solution is put through a filtration process numerous times.

Apart from the luxury vodka, the bottle itself exuberates nothing but sheer elegance, as the Billionaire Vodka bottle is studded with some 3,000 diamonds and Swarovski crystal make up for the alphabet ‘I’ in the word Billionaire.

The cap is based on the form of Russian fur hats with the exception of being made from faux fur.
For the rest of us who would still like a flavor of this diamond drink , Verres has an option of the cheaper 0.5 liter vodka bottle which would be decorated with a handmade gold label. The B on the bottle which stands for Billionaire Vodka would be studded with Swarovski crystals. The bottle comes with white gloves meant to be used while serving the alcohol. The gloves too would have the golden Billionaire vodka logo.
The Billionaire Vodka is definitely one of the more high-end vodkas on this top 10 list, earning a well-earned spot at No.1.
