World’s Most Expensive - RussoBaltique Vodka, featured in "House Of Cards" and World’s Most Expensive Caviar – RussoBaltique Imperial Prix 1912
Set of DARTZ car ownership privileges was sold on Cannes FIlm Festival Auction 2K15 in Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic
And it is not random. This voyage has historical roots.
First RBVZ (later BTAZ, then DARTZ) cars which were sold under label RussBalt (RussoBaltique) visited Cote d’Azur more than a hundred years ago, in 1912.
Brave or insane Russian Team led by A. Nagel and copiloted by V. Mikhailov proved an unbeaten record.
RussoBaltique car leaving on December, 31, 1911, finished first accomplishing 3257 km in 195 hours 23 minutes, with average speed 16,3 km/per hour. Driving a convertible, freezing in minus 25` weather, they used 600 liters of gasoline.
Nagel received an Award for Best Route and for Endurance, however in General Classification he placed only 9th. The committee didn’t take into account the difficulties of the Russian winter routes, whereas other teams’ toughest conditions didn’t come even close to this.
This award for Nagel’s victory brought him also an honorary gift – Golden Caviar Bowl Imperial Prix 1912 and arranged 23 February 1912 at a friendly dinner. As all we know that caviar was one the favorite dishes on Russian Tzar Parties, but specially for “Golden” driver Nagel, Caviar was served with natural gold.
After the announcement of the results, awards, banquet and closing race in Monaco, A. Nagel and....
……V. Mikhailov drove the RussoBalt another 1,000 kilometers to the French riviera and Italy. They had unbelievable parties in Cannes and Nice. In Lyon, they loaded car and took a train back to St. Petersburg.
Of course their bravery and insanity was one of the things helping them succeed, but was it the only one?
If we look carefully on their original car we can find golden balloons, containers for pure military spirit, which drivers mixed with Alp water on their route.
And that’s how RussoBaltique Vodka was born.
We don’t declare that RussoBaltique Vodka is made from ubergrains and zillion times filtered with coal, silver or gold. It’s pure military spirit mixed with crystal clear alpine water.
Alright, we couldn’t help it, it’s diamond filtered, plus a natural diamond filter is implemented in bottle and you can easy see how Vodka passes through a natural diamond.
High ranks were given to Nagel in Russia. According to the report of Tsar Nicholas II’s Vice President, he was awarded the Order of St. Anne III degree. It was the first state award received for sporting success in motorsport!
And that’s how Imperial Prix 1912 - Sturgeon caviar with Gold was born.
Traditions are only traditions when they live in centuries, and people remember them.
DARTZ like proud inheritor of RBVZ made honorable RussoBaltique Vodka.
And this is not about drinking – anybody can buy generic expensive vodka.
It’s about traditions. Following them RussoBaltique Vodka MonteCarlo Rally edition is a copy of balloons found on Nagel’s car in 1912. Made from pure silver, gold, white gold, the RussoBaltique Vodka is first & only Family Relique Vodka. Vodka which is passed from father to son and again.
But no worries – there is also a table edition of the vodka - as some like it cold ;-).
RussoBaltique Vodka Rally Edition is one of deal sweeteners with DARTZ cars. Other one is Imperial Prix 1912 Sustainable Sturgeon Caviar with Gold. It is made in the same place where “1912 Rallye Automobile Internationalle Monte Carlo” almost-winner RussoBaltique was built. In Riga.

These jars are packed in natural wood – rosewood, karelian birch and other boxes which allows You every morning to feel taste of undoubtable World’s Most Expensive Caviar.
