While the last hippies and disco still ruled pop culture in the mid- 1970‘s, there was an emergence of something else in Russia. Enormous oilfields were discovered in Siberia with the promise of land and prosperity.
Three young Russian engineers adventured to the remotest areas of Siberia and the hunt for black gold was on!
Drilling wells and developing oilfields was no cake walk – these guys pushed the limits every day. Extreme living conditions, unforgi- ving Siberian cold, and brutal hard work took a toll on the mind and body. How did they cope? Vodka was the key to survive the Siberian oil rush. The Vodka served with their meager food rations was good enough to warm the spirits but the men knew it could be better.
They dreamt of how it could be much better!
With all the success and money rolling in, the oil pioneers then had the means to distil their own high- grade vodka – exactly how they imagined it. Vodka as it is meant to be. Vodka from oilmen for oilmen.
They called it NEFT, oil in Russian, to honor the natural resource that brought them prosperity.
Many years later they took their formula to Austria, where they could unite the best Austrian grain with the freshest local spring water. They wanted to produce the best vodka as they see it. Today, NEFT
is produced according to their engineering vision, technological knowledge and Russian experience. Always distilled and filtered at the super premium level with the best ingredients.
Packaged in the most efficient and environmentally sound way, NEFT simply the most unadulterated vodka in the world.
NEFT is made from water filtered for fifty years, four ancient grains of rye, and nothing else. The way we crafted it was not the expected choice, but we believe when you stay true to your values, you come out an original — and have a story to tell. So, at NEFT, we’re going to keep to the fundamentals, and let unexpected choices guide our path. Because life is a story. Make it a good one.™
