Polugar is the true legendary Russian bread wine brought back to life using the traditional technologies and recipes from the 18th and 19th centuries. It hasn't been produced for the last 120 years, is 38.5% alcohol strength, smells of rye bread and has a soft pleasant taste. The lost symbol of the Russian wining and dining traditions is brought back, thanks to the effort of dozens of people who are keen on the idea of restoring the historic justice. Bringing back the former popularity of the Russian distillates to the level they were at their heyday during the era of distillation at manors of noblemen. 

The taste of Pulgar is unlike any alcoholic beverage currently produced. Everyone who has tried it is fond of its natural bready taste and aroma, and cannot find a single known alcoholic beverage it can be compared to. Polugar is neither vodka or liquor, it's' a different category of distillates in the Russian and international market - rye distillate. Polugar is the new symbol of national pride and restoration of Russian cuisine traditions - top class bread wine.

This traditional recipe of the XIX century Russian noblemen used by private distillery "Rodionov and Sons": is a triple distillation of rye and wheat in copper alembic, added to a third distillation of allspice and hot peppers, and a thorough cleaning by birch charcoal and the addition of honey. Taste is sweet, enveloping, spicy, refined, with a pleasant pungency, honey, rum, sweet sugar syrup, pepper and other spices such as fennel, ginger, candy, and rye crust of rye bread. An excellent choice for special meals and hearty snacks to enhance the taste of lunch or dinner. 



We suggest serving sipping Polugar No.4 over ice on a cold winter's night. Perhaps with a few drops of runny honey and an orange peel.
