Moskovskaya, literally meaning 'Muscovite' is a Russian brand of vodka which dates back to the communist era and was originally made at Moscow's famous Cristall Distillery. Osobaya or 'Особая', denotes this as being 'a special' vodka, thus 'Moskovskaya Osobaya', translates as 'Special Muscovite'.
Moskovskaya is one of 43 previously state-owned Russian vodka brands brought in 1997 by Sojuzplodimport (S.P.I.) and has since been subject to the same legal wrangles as its better known sibling, Stolichnaya. As a result, Moskovskaya, destined for the international market, is distilled in Russia and then shipped in bulk for bottling in Latvia.
