History of Smirnoff Vodka

The history of Smirnoff Vodka dates back to 1860 when it was founded in Moscow by Pyotr Smirnov who started a distillery under the trade name P.A. Smirnoff. This person, who pioneered charcoal filtration for vodkas captured a significant portion of Moscow markets, by taking successful measures against anti- vodka initiatives made in the country. The Smirnoff vodka of those times saw tremendous success as it was liked even by Tsar of the nation. But as the original inventor died, the Russian vodka industry was nationalized, and the occurrence of the Russian Revolution, the business suffered a severe set back and was wiped off from Russia. Vladimir Smirnov (the successor of P.A. Smirnoff) re-established the brand in Istanbul in 1920. In the next decade Smirnov moved to Poland where he adopted the French spelling for the vodka brand and flourished there. By 1930, the vodka was exported to many European countries and the Smirnoff vodka unit was set up in Paris.
