Elit represents the zenith of Stoli’s distillation technique, using a patented ‘freeze-filtration’ technique to produce an awesome vodka of unparalleled purity. Pure class.

Stolichnaya Elit Vodka Review:

Classy and pure. Stolichnaya is bottled in Russia’s Urals, with a beautiful blue bottle and a subtle and sophisticated glistening. The colour of the bottle is slightly more yellow than we’d be used to, but it’s a subtle shuba, and only a faintly peachy nuances impress. The most most striking is the intense blue colour, which is almost metallic. It almost looks like a reflective mirror, but it’s definitely unique. The bottle on the other end is just the same, and it keeps its shine quite well. The chill shots are a pale blue and are a new and interesting twist; they’re more crystalline than cloudy to enhance the clarity of the drink.

The Elit bottle is a classy and elegant design. The hexagonal holed lid is rimmed by a strip of silver, giving it a sort of jewel-casing effect, especially when you look at it up close. Inside, the vodka is sparkly, bright red, and pretty. The smell isn’t really much to shout about, but I don’t really care too much.

Tasting Notes:

The Elit vodka has assertive flavours. The top of the liquor is a golden yellow colour, sprinkled with small crystal bits. The smell is something between classy and pleasant, with hints of coffee, tang and spice. It is a bit metallic when first poured, but dissipates quickly and quickly goes into a relaxed, smooth and sweet flavor. It’s the sort of flavor that you can keep coming back to again and again without becoming bored. There isn’t much in the harmony department; it is just a substance: This is a clear, red vodka of the highest quality. There’s a sweet layer of undertones, but it doesn’t come out too much; it is almost as if Stolichnaya names the drink after but fails to express any particular notes. The finish is nice and smooth, but doesn’t give you any real stamina. There’s no finish and it doesn’t last very long before fading out.


Elit is a really nice vodka; I’ve been on the lookout for a quality vodka for a while and having tried this, I feel I’ve finally found one. Elit is very pure, very smooth, very aromatic and very smooth. Under a large glass leaf, it’s the best vodka I’ve ever tasted. It is undoubtedly a fantastic drink, and although I know few people who can afford the price, I’d happily recommend it to anyone who has the willingness to spend the money for the good things in life. It is so sweet, so aromatic and so flavorful; it satisfies every palate and blends magic into aesthetics.

That being said, there is one aspect of the level of quality that could be improved: the lack of finish. Although a great vodka for the pure clean and smooth taste, it lacks the finish that a vodka should have, such as texture or taste. 

Nevertheless, Elit is still a great vodka. I’ve tried and tasted many brands of vodka, and it’s very clear that Stoli is the best. I would definitely recommend it to people who enjoy really high quality vodka for its smoothness and its flavor. 

Stoli Elit Review:

Stolichnaya Elit Vodka Proof is produced from the highest quality wheat and potatoes. Using the purest water, a mother liquor is distilled over an absolutely fire proofed copper kettle before being filtered through solid basalt stone, distilled a second time and frozen-filtered to guarantee quality. Pure class.

Stolichnaya Elit Vodka provides a smooth, crystal clear taste of the unique Stolichnaya Ruby by a neutral taste that slightly enhances the character of the exceptional taste of Stolichnaya. The color of the liquid is intense due to removal of impurities and artificial additives. The positive aspects of Stolichnaya Elit Vodka are ‘Freeze-filtering’ and ‘Freeze-filtration.’

A glass with a tight ring of ice:

Stolichnaya Elit Vodka – a purple liquid on the surface and clear under the glass. The smell is not as strong as in the chilled bottle, but the flavor is still there. It is quite smooth and rounded, tasting similar to a lot of spirits which I’ve had no problems with. Think vodka because of the very quick flavor of the drink, but compare it to vodka’s stronger, fuller, sharper, and more powerful flavors, and you’re not really tasting the Stoli Elit Vodka, just as is.

It’s quite a boring drink for being so expensive, but it’s got a lot going for it. A vodka drinker will almost certainly enjoy it, and I would recommend it for now. It is smooth, well made and well made.
