The Cuban Missile Crisis – thirteen days that changed the world. In October 1962 John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev negotiated removing Soviet nuclear weapons from Cuba, but their agreement did not remove the Soviets from Cuba. Thousands of Russian soldiers (then known as Soviets) were left on the island and with them their great love of vodka. Micro distilleries were created throughout Cuba to produce Russian-style vodka to satisfy their thirst. Using Russian know-how and Cuban ingenuity, Russian quality vodka was created and enjoyed on the island. Due to politics this great vodka has not been known to the world, until now. The Cuban migration to Miami has brought along with it Jestony Vodka. Produced in South Florida with the same Russian know-how and Cuban ingenuity used on the island for the past five decades, Jestony Vodka is a six-time distilled vodka with the smoothness of the world’s finest super premium vodkas, and it is now available for the first time ever in the United States.
