If you spent your 20s in ritzy 1860s Moscow, a night out would have meant Vaudeville Opera, the Bolshoi Theatre or a refined cocktail party. It was to this audience that Piotr Arsenyevich Smirnov opened his small quality distillery. He little imagined that over a century later his family name would have such a significant part ot play on a very different social scene.
During the revolution, the Bolsheviks confiscated all private property and converted the distillery into a state owned garage.
Later on, one of Piotr's sons successfully revived the family business and the 1930s saw the launch of his high quality product on the American Market. The venture was a triumph. By the 1930s, Smirnoff vodka had entered the New World.
This week Smirnoff launches its 'Twist' range of flavoured Vodkas. After the success of Citrus Twist, Smirnoff now brings Twist in other flavours like Raspberry, Orange and Vanilla. This week and Smirnoff bring to you a contest where not only do you get to put on your thinking cap and be your creative best, but also win a hamper of Smirnoff Twist.
