Estonian vodka (PGI)

Tradition is the name given to cultural features that in times of change continue to be
handed down, thought about, and preserved.
Forgetting traditions—no matter which ones—is not difficult at all.
We are maintaining the traditions first mentioned at Moe Manor in 1500.
This is a true little story, which began in that year, continued until 1526, from there to 1688,
developed further in 1886 and still continues. This is our story – the story of the
Estonian vodka* that we wish to introduce to you.

MOE 1886

Traditsioonideks nimetatakse kultuuriilminguid, mida muutuvas ajas antakse edasi põlvest põlve, millele mõeldakse ja mida hoitakse. Traditsioonide unustamine on aga imelihtne.

Moe mõisa elavad traditsioonid said alguse, kui:

• 1500. aastal esmamainitakse Moe mõisa (Muddis)
• 1526. aastal esmamainitakse viinavalmistamist Eestimaal
• 1688. aastal esmamainitakse viinakööki Moe mõisas
• 1886. aastal alustatakse Moe mõisas moodsa piiritusevabriku rajamist
• 2011 aasta oli „Moe 1886“ esimene villimisaasta

See on meie lugu – Eesti viina* lugu, mida soovime teile tutvustada.

Viljatera elujõudu – antud juhul Sangaste talirukki oma – iseloomustavad seal sisalduvad proteiinid, süsivesikud, tärklis, vitamiinid, mineraalide mikroelemendid ja teised elemendid, kaasa arvatud fütoestrogeenid ja antioksüdandid. Silver Swan Organic Vodka valmistamiseks  kasutatakse ainult kõige elujõulisemat rukist.


By applying modern technology to ancient Estonian and Livonian knowledge, Silver Swan is bringing passion and integrity back to vodka. Without the honest goals of time—quality, purity, flavour—technological advancement only takes us farther away from a truly premium spirit.

The vitality of grain—in this case Sangaste winter rye*—is characterized by its content of proteins, carbohydrates, starch, vitamins, trace minerals, and other, including phytoestrogens and antioxidants. Only rye with optimal levels of vitality is used in the production of our spirit.

When you choose Silver Swan, you know that we did not invent another tasteless vodka. This vodka takes you on a journey back to classical period of vodka, to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Clear, complex, and remarkably pure, the frst impression of the unsurpassed smoothness is an experience that makes all others obsolete. Silver Swan is unfltered.

Originally vodka was unfltered and made only from the best winter grain—only the best grain lives in the taste of vodka after its long journey through mash, fermentation and slow distillation.

Truth resides in the single grain. Silver Swan uses winter grain for its strength of character, sourcing it from old manors lands. These estates are still farmed: simply, with sustainable, earth-friendly practices. The precious grains are harvested only at the optimum time, painstakingly sorted, and dried with the utmost care. Then past meets future.
