The Alexandrov Design House was put to the task of developing a very Russian vodka bottle for the Urzhum distillery, and chose to focus its efforts on pulling inspiration from the Vyatka province.

A known symbol for the province are Dymkovo toys and this design brings out the vibrancy of the province with vivid colors, shapes and lace-like patterning. Although it seems like a vodka bottle with an image of a doll on it could easily be overly feminine, the color scheme and all of the detailing puts much more of a focus on being Russian than it does being girly. Even though vodka has strong ties to Russia, this bottle design strengthens and celebrates the connection. Stats for Quintessentially Russian Vodkas Trending: Older & Mild
