BORN OF INNOVATION AND INTEGRITY.
Taste for the finest.
We started with the fundamentals, simple things we’d learned from our Siberian roots. We drew water from the Rhaetian Alps in Austria where slate and granite filter out the pretension. Discovered a blend of ancient rye in Lower Saxony that had been blowing in the wind for 5,000 years. And then partnered with a distiller who, for five generations, had been handcrafting rare, curated spirits and winning Distillery of the Year — a family with terroir running in their veins.
We used a gentle, slow distillation. Sipped the first batch. Tasted the softness, flavor and skill passed down over a century. It was smooth and rich, with a sweetness borne of ingredients, not sugar. Turns out, we weren’t alone in our reaction — NEFT went on to win consecutive Double Gold medals. And since we’d landed on a taste like no other, we preserved it in a shape like no other, the NEFT barrel — in honor of our grandfather, a Russian wildcatter who always knew how to tell a story.
