‘ZAKUSKA’ is the Russian word for a ‘snack’, in most cases it refers to the kind of snack that you have
after taking a shot of vodka.
A true Russian experience that consists of a Siberian Express Vodka tasting and Russian food pairing.
Meet the Siberian Express team and learn a thing or two about Russian traditions, culture and flavour!
And all of this will take place in one of Cape Town's most historically fascinating buildings; Rhodes
Place in Queen Victoria street.
This unforgettable event will occur on Friday, the 13th of November 2020. Arrival from 18:30 for
the event to officially kick-off at 7. Please note that no tickets will be available at the door.

Our story began on a cold winter’s night in Cape Town, Southern Africa, where a Russian gentlemen decided to craft Africa’s very
own original Russian recipe craft vodka. It was indeed something that the nation has never tasted before. Since 2019 we have
embarked on a journey on board of the Siberian Express and have already collected pockets of valuable memories!
Our Journey’s Highlights
We always enjoy attending events where our brand can make a meaningful contribution.
We are all about authenticity, flavour experiences and breaking the stereotype about
vodka. At every event, everyone who interacts with our vodka and our team is always
pleasantly surprised about how real Russian vodka tastes. If you would like us at your
event, please contact us so that we can make a plan for an exciting collaboration!

Cape Talk’s Pippa Hudson, on the best radio show in the Cape! For those of you who tuned
in, you will know that we brought Pippa our Siberian Express tasting experience right
into the studio! We had our four variants paired with gourmet snacks that compliment
the flavour of each. Our distiller, Evgeny, also gave the cape a lot of insight on why
traditional Russian vodka is made from wheat and also about the special origin of our
We have had a lot of questions about our tasting experience; and we have good news!
We are planning another Vodka and Zakuska event, all details will be announced soon!
