In the S03E03 of House of Cards, the Russian president brings this vodka for the US president. Is this real or just a made up vodka since I couldn't find any results on google. Cheers!

  • Do you by any chance know how to find a freely available image or video clip of it? I'm guessing the current answer might be based on similar appearances, but I haven't seen the show. – Cascabel Mar 2 '15 at 4:24

Nope, it appears to be totally fictional.


It's referred to as $750,000, with a bottle of gold.

That could be real, except that it doesn't appear to be.

You can spend that much on a bottle of Russian vodka, but none of the bottles look like that.

  • Wow.. I wasn't expecting to get any answers, I am overwhelmed with the responses. Yes, he mentions it is worth $750,000. That link, nice find! Thanks! – brokenfoot Mar 3 '15 at 0:00

Osobaya Sayanskaya literally translates to Sayanskaya Deluxe or Special Sayanskaya, possibly implying that its origins are in the Sayan Mountains region. There is no real brand of vodka like that, although Sayanskaya Kristaljnaya (Crystal Sayanskaya) vodka does seem to exist. It’s not at all famous or of known special quality however.


No, it's not real, but it was probably based on russobaltique vodka.
