Tasting of the most prominent Soviet time alcoholic drinks

Estonia was a part of Soviet Union for 48 years.
One of the myths about USSR, that people drank nothing but vodka. True, that vodka was the most popular drink for the working class of people.
However, upper classes of the society preferred something better like Armenian cognac and Georgian wine. For mass Communist party events, even a special kind of vodka was introduced and for special occasions, like New Year or a Birthday party, a sparkling Soviet champagne was absolutely necessary.
Some of the Estonian drinks became a part of Soviet alcoholic tradition too, like Vana Tallinn liqueur.
Please come, and try 5 of the most popular Soviet liquors.
Our tasting is not just drinking but learning about history of the country, tastes and life of people.
Tasting takes place in a great restaurant in the main square on the Old town
