Carbonated drinks (Cola and others)

Translator is not needed here! In Russia there are all well-known brands of beverages (e.g. Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, Schweppes, etc). Just say the brand!

We also recommend you to try unique Russian drink Baikal (in Russian - БАЙКАЛ). Some people call it "Russian cola", although this is not entirely true, because the composition includes natural Russian herb extracts. Learn more

Note! Exclusive rights to the drink of Baikal belong to the company Aqualife - the trademark "Drinks from Chernogolovka" (see the logo). Baikal with any other logo is counterfeit!


The unique recipe of the drink was developed by technologists of the All-Union Research Institute of Brewing, Non-Alcoholic and Wine-Making Industry in 1976. Its ingredients, such as the medicinal herb St. John's wort, licorice and eleuterococcus root gave the drink its distinct taste and tonic properties. The Russian Company AQUALIFE retained the traditional receipt, due to which the drink engaged the hearts and won the recognition from the consumers.
The AQUALIFE Company has exclusive rights to produce and sell the Baikal drink both in Russia and in 30 countries around the world.

Ingredients: Artesian water, Sugar, Extracts: eleuterococcuss, black tea; Oils: cardamom, eucalyptus, lemon.

Link to sound
Russian aristocrat Prince Golitsyn established the first economically successful Russian sparkling wine at Abrau-Dyurso. So successful was Golitsyn that in 1900 at the Paris World Fair, Novy Svet champagne defeated all the French entries to claim the internationally coveted Grand Prix de Champagne.

The new brand, named 'Soviet Champagne' (in Russian - Советское Шампанское) is a generic brand of sparkling wine, was created in 1928. The "father" of the new technology was Anton Frolov-Bagreyev, a former employee of Prince Golitsyn at Abrau-Dyurso. The technology of production was further improved in 1953 by Professor Georgy Agabalyanc, who received the Lenin Prize for that achievement. In 1975 Moët & Chandon bought a licence for production of sparkling wine by Soviet method.

Wine is made from a blend of Aligote, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon blanc, Muscat, Pinot blanc and Traminer grapes. Sweetness: Brut, Dry, Medium Dry, Medium Sweet (most popular in Russia) and Sweet.

Under European Union law, as well as treaties accepted by most nations, sparkling wines produced outside the champagne region, even wine produced in other parts of France, do not have the right to use the term "champagne". However, in 2011 the Russian Association of Sparkling Wine Producers said that it had reached an agreement with the Inter-Professional Champagne Committee that the terms of Russia's refusal to use French terms had been shifted to 2022.
