The original rye kvass Vyatsky drink was prepared with live fermentation practices that are drawn from ancient recipes that have been marked down by Vyatsky monks during the XII-XIII century. The Vyatsky kvass uses rye malt and commemorates the historic time where Russians were suffering from a lack of vitamins during the winter and thirst during the summer.
The kvass recipe dates back thousands of years and is currently a widespread libation that is enjoyed on a daily basis. It has a rich history of being prepared for peasants and landlord, the military and monks, and more. This kvass Vyatsky is made from rye bread and uses rye malt for the natural fermentation process.
