History of Smirnoff

Way back when in 1864 Moscow Russiea, a man by the name of Pyotr Smirnov (the guy on the right) decided to start a vodka company based on his passion for the beverage.
Pyotr had a different process of creating his vodka. One big different was how he utilized charcoal filtration.
Keep in mind that Russia back then was strict on alcohol.
In order to reduce the negativity from the anti-vodka church leaders, he donated very generously to the clergy.
Pyotr was also the first vodka company to take advantage of newspaper advertisements. By 1886, his vodka was dominating Russia.
Later on when Pyotr died, he passed on the company to his third, and most trustworthy son, Vladimir Smirnov. The company continued to grow in popularity and sold over 4 million cases of vodka per year. Considering this was before the digital age, this was ab even bigger accomplishment.
In 1904, the emperor of Russia focused on becoming a major exporter of vodka. Vladimir was forced to sell both his factory and brand.
During the revolution of 1917, the entire Smirnov family fled to Constantinople (which is now present day Istanbul, Turkey) where he started a new factory.
This wasn’t a permanent move and 4 years later he traveled to Lwów (present day Ukraine).
Up to this point you might notice that the family’s last name, Smirnov, is spelled differently than today’s company, Smirnoff.
When the Smirnov family moved to Ukraine to start selling Vodka, they were selling it under the French version of their name, Smirnoff.
They were selling well, but not even close to how it was selling in Russia.
It wasn’t until the 1930s, when Vladimir met Rudolph Kunett, a Russian emigrant who came to America in the 20s. Vladimir sold Kunett the right to produce Smirnoff vodka in North America, starting in Bethel Connecticut.
This didn’t go to well and Kunett nearly went bankrupt doing so. Kunett couldn’t afford to run Smirnoff anymore.
A man named John Martin bought the rights to the North American Smirnoff branch for $14,000. He actually afforded it from the launch of his company Heublein’s popular steak sauce product, A1 Steak Sauce.
Keep in mind that at this time in America, no one drinked vodka. The liquor of choice was whiskey.
Martin made the life-saving decision to rebrand. They started using whiskey corks, called their product “White Whiskey”, and their main slogan was “no taste, no smell”. This decision made a huge difference in sales.
In 1982, the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco company bought Heublein Inc. for 1.4 billion dollars. While that is a significant amount of money now, it was worth considerably more back in the 80s.
After that long battle, the company was free to innovate and come out with amazing products including Smirnoff Whipped Cream Vodka.
So there you have it; that was the history of Smirnoff.
