Celebrity photographer Sasha Gusov playing Ivan The Terrible for new "Ivan The Terrible" vodka's cool advertisement short clip.
RUSSIAN VODKA IVAN THE TERRIBLE is a quintessentially Russian luxury vodka, crafted to a 16th century recipe in the unique Osobaya style. Unlike ordinary vodkas, it is neither a plain mixture of water and spirit, nor is it flavoured vodka. Its distinctive elegant character and exceptionally smooth finish come from delicate infusions of wild buckwheat honey and Siberian cedar nuts combined with the finest grain spirit and natural spring water. State of the art continuous distillation and multiple charcoal filtering process ensures its ultimate purity and hangover free properties. Unlike ordinary vodkas, Ivan can be enjoyed neat, like a fine cognac, at room temperature, either on its own, or accompanied by caviar in the authentic Russian style.

IVAN THE TERRIBLE \Ivan IV Vasilyevich

), known in English
as Ivan the Terrible
(Ivan Grozny Russian
: Ива́н Гро́зный (help·info)
) ( 25 August 1530, Moscow – 28 March [O.S. 18 March]
Moscow) was Grand Prince of Moscow
from 1533. The epithet "Grozny" is associated with might, power and strictness, rather than horror or cruelty.
Ivan oversaw numerous changes in the transition from a medieval nation state
to an empire
and emerging regional power
, and became the first Tsar
of a new and more powerful nation.
Historic sources present disparate accounts of Ivan: he is described as intelligent and devout by some; given to rages and prone to episodic outbreaks of mental illness
by others. One notable outburst resulted in the death of his groomed and chosen heir Ivan Ivanovich
(although this version is supported mainly by foreign authors of that time and those Russian historians who quote them; the exact cause of his death is still disputed), and resulted in the passing of the Tsardom to the younger son: the arguably mentally retarded Feodor I of Russia
. His long reign saw the conquest of the Khanates of Kazan
, and Siberia
, transforming Russia into a multiethnic
state spanning almost 1 billion acres, growing during his term at a rate of approximately 50 square miles a day.
