About Kyrgyzstani SPIRITS

Not surprisingly, vodka is the leading spirit in Krgyzstan, an independent nation that was formerly part of the Soviet Union. Quality is high as these are classic styled vodkas. They are often served chilled in a small glass, with natives downing the entire amount at once.

Boza is an unusual beverage, made from wheat and often mixed with milk. It is a popular drink with street vendors in the summer months.
Top Picks for Kyrgyzstan
Clear color. Vibrant, interesting aromas and flavors of pineapple cake, tropical fruit custard, and honeyed nuts with a silky, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish displaying accents of vanilla nougat, exotic peppercorns, powdered sugar, and fuel-like minerals. A rather exotic and flavor-packed spirit that will make for intriguing cocktails.
