Each Polugar single grain selection is distilled three times in copper pot stills that were meticulously reproduced from 18th century drawings. The distillate then undergoes a labor-intensive and expensive egg-white purification process, a popular method used by the Russian aristocracy in the 1700's. A long purification process ensues using birch wood charcoal.
