Russian Standard Vodka’s collaboration with Jason Silva is a result of his passion for looking past the normal and finding inspiration in the complexities of science and nature. It is this same passion that inspired Russian Standard Vodka, and its founder Roustam Tariko, to realize their vision of the highest standard of vodka created from the softest glacial water and the finest quality Russian winter wheat, combined and distilled in accordance with scientific principals established by famed Russian scientist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1894. Harnessing the knowledge of Russia’s greatest chemist, cutting-edge technology, the most natural ingredients and Russia’s best vodka-making traditions, Roustam Tariko crafted Russian Standard an authentic, ultra-clean, smooth and delicious tasting vodka.

Jason Silva’s philosophy, optimism, intelligence and ability to convey stories in a simple and passionate way make him Russian Standard Vodka’s perfect partner. Already well-known for his award-winning National Geographic programme, Brain Games, Jason Silva’s hugely popular VIMEO films and YouTube channel Shots of Awe, which boasts millions of subscribers globally, has been exploring these incredible themes for several years to critical acclaim.

Jason Silva commented: “I am thrilled to be collaborating with Russian Standard Vodka and its visionary founder Roustam Tariko! From our very first conversation, I knew that this was an opportunity to do something totally different and creative that highlights the fascinating space where nature and technology become indistinguishable.”

Roustam Tariko commented: “With his unique ability to inspire people and communicate incredible ideas, Jason is a perfect match for Russian Standard Vodka. Together, we share an enthusiasm and passion for science and nature, which are at the core of Russian Standard’s mission to create perfect vodka.”
