Smirnoff Blue Vodka is the super-premium member of the Smirnoff family. Produced using demineralised and filtered water, this vodka is triple-distilled and filtered through activated charcoal to achieve the prerequisite smoothness and purity prior to bottling. This is indeed a unique blend. Founded by Piotr Arsenieyevich Smirnov in the 1860s and later passed down to his third son Vladimir Smirnov, the Smirnov Vodka Distillery was the first in the world to use a charcoal filtering process and is owned by Diageo today. In the late 1990s, the brand introduced flavoured vodkas including Raspberry, Mandarin, Green Apple, Raspberry, Cranberry, Raspberry, Citrus, and Vanilla.
