Relaunched in late 2017, Stoli Gold has changed their recipe as well as updated their bottle. The vodka is based on 100% single-estate Gubernator Dona winter wheat. The water used in this vodka has been filtered through shungite, a meteoric rock found in the Tambov region in Russia. The vodka is filtered like their standard Stoli, through Russian birch charcoal and quartz sand, but it also is filtered through coils of gold thread.
