A traditional non-alcoholic brewed drink based on bread, known from the time of Russ, which is for very very long. Good to slake the thirst on a sunny day, good to drink instead of beer if you’re driving, great for a picnic. Very refreshing in the morning after you tried Samogon or Medovuha.

A moonshine made of all sorts of products, sugar, beets, potatoes, fruit, jam gone sour etc. Heavy metal stuff! For battle-hardened and tough only. Beautiful girls, better get a Pina Colada.
