Belka and Stelka were two stray dogs who were chosen to spend a day aboard the Sputnik 5 on 19th August 1960. They orbited the Earth 18 times! When the space dogs came back to Earth, they were received as heroes – their incredible venture into space paved the way for further space exploration. One year later, Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space. The brave canine Cosmonauts were launched into space from Baikanur in Kazakhstan, where Belka & Strelka Vodka is distilled today. This charming product is a tribute to their legendary flight between the stars.
A special, triple distilled Vodka, Belka and Strelka is filtered through silver to give it an incredibly clean, crisp and minerally flavour. Hand applied, bright retro-Soviet packaging gives this Vodka a unique, charming and genuine craft feel – perfect for space fanatics and cocktail connoisseurs alike. For vodka cocktails that are truly ‘out of this world’, it has to be Belka & Strelka…
