Notes

Meneleev vodka is named for Dimitri Mendeleev "the father of Russian vodka." Mendeleev is better known as the creator of the first version of the periodic table (for those of you with an inkling of chemistry). But more importantly, he was named to the Bureau of Weights and Measures and implemented a set of standards for Russian vodkas.

Mendeleev vodka is a product of Ukraine and makes claim to a fine taste brought about through both eight-times distillation and eight-times filtration during production. They also claim to use water from "Carpathian snow"--the purest water on earth brought down from the Carpathian mountains, the largest mountain range in Europe forming part of the landscape of the Ukraine. The distillery itself--currently undisclosed--is said to have been distilling for well over a century. 

We're informed that Mendeleev is owned by Aloy and Sons, Inc of Los Angeles, California.

Had a heck of a time getting the liquor out of the bottle. Terrible pouring system at the top of the bottle. Has it not already been distilled!? Kind of annoying. Actually really annoying. Still dont even really know how it works. Just had my first sip. It really is quite delicious. Maybe one of the best vodkas Ive ever tasted. And Ive tasted my fair share of vodkas.

Hands down the best Vodka I have ever tasted. Smooth, mellow, odorless, with a slight sweetness.

Very smooth taste, mellow nose and subtle aftertaste. We compared this with a cheap Schmirnoff and it was clearly superior thus disputing the old saw that vodkas are odorless and tasteless.

I'm typically not a fan of chilled vodka shots, but this was quite good. Smooth flavor & finish, with no aftertaste. Lends itself well to classic cocktails & drinking straight. Its worth the price point.

This vodka is fucking miraculous. Seriously, I've had a lot of vodkas. Smirnoff, Popov, Gray Goose, Belvedere, Ed Hardy, Svedka, Skyy, Absolute, Ketel One, Level, Platinum, Stoly and one called "3" that the idiots at some prestigious wine and spirits review board gave "A perfect 100 rating!". Every single one - EVERY single one - has been bad vodka. I feel nauseous, hungover when I'm done - I can only drink them mixed. Mendeleev is the FIRST that I genuinely enjoyed. It has no odor, no taste, and only the slightest burn, and absolutely NO hangover - which is fucking phenomenal. They could charge $50 a bottle for this and I'd cheerfully pay it. If you are staring at the shelf, trying to decide, don't. Just get Mendeleev, drink the bottle, then look sad there isn't any more.

Not a bad Vodka but if you are not making martinis or mixing with fruit to temper the burn I would recommend looking elsewhere.

This was surprisingly a very tasty smooth Vodka. There was no harshness to it and it has a clean finish. I am shocked that it didn't do better in San Francisco tasting. Makes me wonder what they use as a standard to judge by because they missed this gem by a mile.

I would like to know if this is a regional item or is it national and if so where can I find it?

A friend of mine invited me to a private tasting in LA, and there were several Vodkas being tasted there but this was far superior to any of the ones being tested.

I have had a lot of vodkas and most of the lower grade ones give me a hell of a hangover! But not this one, this was clean and well made.

This is a very, very nice vodka. Smooth, tried it in three drinks and though it played very well with others. Good stuff at a good price.

This is a surprisingly good vodka. Light, silky smooth, no needling, and no bite in the finish. Definitely worth the $30 price point.

Very good. Made me think of the lake and making it with lemons, sugar and ice in a sun tea jar.
