The Spiritique Story:
Spiritique began when Stephane Aussel and his two partners, all veterans of the the spirits business, decided to create a company specializing in quality French Spirits made from the best ingredients, presented in really handsome packaging.
The Bistro Story:
In 1814 the Russian army was in Paris. Although they were not allowed to drink in pubs, they were served vodka when they asked for a quick drink. “Quick” being “быстро” (bistro) in Russian. Thus the Parisian “Bistro,” a place to have a quick drink or light meal was born.
The Bistro Recipe:
Bistro Vodka is made from top quality French wheat. Distilled five times in a triple pot still. The results are a perfectly balanced, clean and light vodka with an ABV of 40%.
A well rounded and highly refined nose, somewhat floral, with a nice freshness. Clean, crisp, and delicate on the palate, with soft aromatic nuances and a light lingering finish. No bitterness or afterburn.
