For Fun – Ten Anastasias We Know

Our favorite Anastasia is, of course, the one you spell with an “e”, then a capital A at the end, as in AnestasiA Vodka.

But there are lots of fun Anastasias out there, and we thought we should pay quick tribute to a name exceedingly rich in history, culture, and even popular culture.

1. 1997 Fox Animation, Anastasia. Animated musical fantasy drama.

2. Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the last sovereign of Imperial Russia, and his wife, Tsarina Alexandra Fyodorovna.

3. Saint Anastasia, Christian saint and martyr who died at Sirmium, Serbia. In the Orthodox Church, she is venerated as St. Anastasia the Pharmakolytria, in explanation, ”Deliverer from Potions”.

4. Anastasia Steele, the female protagonist in Fifty Shades of Grey, a book trilogy. We thought our AnestasiA Vodka was hot…but this trilogy truly burned up the pop culture bookshelves last year.

5. Anastasia in Beverly Hills. As their website states, Anastasia Soare is widely referred to as a beauty innovator, and for good reason. Long before professional eyebrow shaping became an essential beauty ritual, she was thee beauty specialist for top celebrities, and has singlehandedly turned perfect brows and youthful eyes into essential accessories. For our beauty tip, we think anyone drinking AnestasiA Vodka looks a little better… ;)

6. Anastasia Ashley, the pro surfer. Sea skills matched with Greek Goddess beauty, you may want to check out her wave. What’s an enchanting drink after a sunset surfing session? AnestasiA Vodka of course, mixed with Hawaiian pineapple and Caribbean mint.

7. Anastasia, the first book of the Ringing Cedars Series, found on Amazon among other places. It “tells the story of entrepreneur Vladimir Megre’s trade trip to the Siberian taiga in 1995, where he witnessed incredible spiritual phenomena connected with sacred ‘ringing cedar’ trees. He spent three days with a woman named Anastasia who shared with him her unique outlook on subjects as diverse as gardening, child-rearing, healing, Nature, sexuality, religion and more. This wilderness experience transformed Vladimir so deeply that he abandoned his commercial plans and, penniless, went to Moscow to fulfil Anastasia’s request and write a book about the spiritual insights she so generously shared with him.” Sounds interesting, yes?

8. Anastasia Tsioulcas is an Associate Producer for NPR Music. We love NPR!

9. Hotel Anastasia in Venice, Italy. A truly romantic city, famous for food, architecture, and a vibrant culture, among other attributes. Italy has been importing AnestasiA Vodka lately, so we think it’s suiting there’s a Hotel Anastasia.

10. Anastasia Chatzka. According to many in Chicago, this place is an essential shopping experience. Anastasia Chatzka is an innovative, stylish designer with lively colorful clothes. What tastes wonderful after a long day of shopping? You know… :)

Also note, the common misspelling for AnestasiA Vodka is Anastasia Vodka. Anastasia Vodka is nearly correct, except the third letter actually has an E, AnestasiA Vodka. Either way you spell it, our vodka is smooth, luxurious, American-made, and gluten-free!


Happy Halloween!

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog…



Bottle Design by Karim Rashid

Here’s another interesting article describing Karim Rashid’s design process when he created our bottle.

We were thrilled he took on our project—and have been pleased with the results since day one. We believe it resembles an award, a work of art, something that helps define the new standard of American luxury, akin to our smooth premium vodka. We hope you agree!

We’re also pleased that Las Vegas Top Picks continues to connect with our vision, and write about us:

Las Vegas Top Picks has our vodka under both the Sunlight and Starlight sections. We imagine that’s because you can enjoy AnestasiA with either sunlight or starlight… :)

Fifty Shades of Vodka?

We’ve discovered another Anastasia out there, Anastasia Steele, the female literary character in Fifty Shades of Grey. Of course, our AnestasiA has an “e” in the middle, but Anestasia and Anastasia are often mistakenly swapped when spelling them in online searches. There’s already the Russian Princess Anastasia Nikolaevna as well as the 1997 Fox movie Anastasia.

Rumor has it the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie is cast with Charlie Hunnam playing Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson playing Anastasia Steele. Maybe we can get a cameo? Anastasia Steele could be sipping AnestasiA Vodka… ;)

AnestasiA Vodka vs Anastasia

AnestasiA Vodka Bottle, Black and White  Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna Anastasia 1997 Animated Film
We should note, AnestasiA Vodka is sometimes misspelled AnastasiA Vodka, with four A’s instead of three. There are a variety of Anastasias out there, for example, the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russian history. Then, the 1997 animated Disney film “Anastasia” about her story –

AnastasiA Vodka is nearly correct in that it contains some Russian history, too. Our brand CEO is Ukrainian-born Yuliya Mamontova, who named the vodka after her Russian grandmother Anestasia. Her compelling history weaves back into Mother Russia as well as 200 years of family experience with vodka making.

When ordering our luxury vodka online, researching its many positive reviews, or checking out the AnestasiA Lifestyle Blog, please remember our AnestasiA has one E and a “nest” in the middle. Cheers!
