Home-brew (samogon) museum in Togliatti is definitely one of the most unusual museums in the city. Devoted to the traditional Russian beverage, it is popular not only with the foreign but also with the Russian tourists.
The initiator of the museum is the owner of the café situated on the territory of the Institute of Ecology of Volga basin RAS. The museum was founded with the support of the Culinary Togliatti Society.
To comment on the drink itself it is worth quoting the character of the world-famous book “The little golden calf”, talking about samogon: “What kind do you want? Potato, grain, apricot, barley, mulberry, buckwheat kasha? You can even make moonshine from an ordinary footstool. Some people like footstool vodka. Or you could make a simple raisin or plum vodka. In a word, any one of the hundred and fifty moonshines that I know the recipe for.”
The permanent exposition, devoted to the Russian moonshine and the technologies of the “bread-wine” welcomes the visitors, willing to learn more about the mysterious Russian soul.
