The story began…
Hot summer sun blazes down on an ancient forest. Dark shadows and mysterious aromas reign in the parts of the forest untouched by the sun. Places soaked in sunshine emit a heady fragrance of forest plants. The slender fireweed dances in forest wind, proudly wearing its high pink crown … This is how four eager Estonian men discovered the plant and decided to combine its taste and aroma with organic spirit.
There are now two unique RÜÜBE flavoured vodkas available: one with a touch of fireweed, an ancestral magical herb, the other spiced by zestful ginger and mint. Besides our flavoured vodkas, our organic vodka “Haljas” has been awarded the status of Estonia’s finest vodka and is labelled with a geographical indication.
There’s nothing quite like the colours and scents of an Estonian summer!
Forest plants have played an important part in folk medicine since the dawn of times, but nowadays, we tend to use them for our sensual pleasure. Enjoy the wonderful aroma and taste of nature’s gifts.
RÜÜBE is a wise drink choice on special occasions and serves also as a perfect gift.

„Craft-vodka brand Rüübe offers both classical tastes and something new and exciting. It’s great for just enjoyment but also for making cocktails and other mixed drinks.“
“Rüübe vodka should be drank in room temperature – only mediocre vodka shoud be drank cold. This clearly states that Rüübe is the flagship of highest quality vodkas.
Ginger Rüübe has an amazing aroma and I personally think, it might also have healing properties. It has healed some of my ailments. I think the fireweed Rüübe should represent the whole Eastern Estonia, the region, that keeps alive the legacy of fireweed tea known as Ivan-Chai.”
„Already when pouring out Rüübe, the aroma of the vodka made me want to pair it with a beautifully grilled piece of lamb. That was the first time for me when vodka aromas give me an instant association of a certain dish.
You do not need anything to wash down Rüübe’s vodka – it has a very clear taste and is clearly the first culinary vodka for me.
The fireweed Rüübe impresses me with it’s clarity in aroma and flavor. The good thing is that the ideas, that you gather during tasting the vodka, are still clear in the morning. Together with my family I’m a big fan of fermented fireweed tea. Tasting the Rüübe vodka felt like meeting my morning friend but in the evening.”
“Rüübe „Haljas“ – a vodka which is as clear as glass, with a slight viscosity, with a clear scent and slightly spicy undertone. From flavours you can distinctly feel spices and sweetness. Packaged nicely. Nice clear product, I recommend to enjoy it in moderation. 90 points out of a 100 from me.
Rüübe „Ginger-Mint“ – clear colored, has strong scent of mint in it’s aroma. In flavours dominates peppermint, which is slightly mixed with ginger.
Rüübe’s „Fireweed“ vodka – clear coloured, with a distinct herbal scent, associates with bog and smells of summer forest plants. Tastes slightly spicy, the taste is even more tempting than the aroma.
The last two (ginger-mind and fireweed) I would rather recommend for cocktail making.
PS. The drinks were taste tested at +10 celcius from a tulip-shaped glass.”
We taste tested Rüübe’s craft vodkas with 14 TalTech Open University Culinary Management academy 8th graduation class students under the instructions of top sommelier Aivar Vipper. All taste tested vodkas were beautifully clear, since they are 100% organic products. The vodkas received the following feedback:
KÄSITÖÖVIIN „HALJAS“: joogis oli tunda rukki täisküpsust ja magusust. Hästi tasakaalus ja puhta maitsega selge traditsiooniline viin. Järelmaitses oli tunda rukki magusust. “Haljas” on tõeliseks ehteks igale peolauale.
