Vodka

Vodka is everywhere in Dushanbe, although the number of people that drink here seems to be fewer than in Armenia, and the amount consumed much less. Walking through a supermarket, I was excited to see this familiar bottle, usually a sign of quality vodka. Then I noticed that it was not the brand I was familiar with, but another. Look closely.


Yes, only in Tajikistan can you find 'White Goose' vodka. Grey Goose must have ripped off the image and label, and changed the flag colors from red/white/green to red/white/blue. The Tajik producer should sue. What's especially amazing about this product (besides the taste, I'm sure) is the fact that it's 'Made in Tajikistan', and yet at the same time 'Imported'. The brand team managed to convey nationalism and quality through this unique combination of terms.

  1. Actually, it looks like it says White Goos. Exactly how many of these goos are in the bottle, I can't tell. But the goo is white, that's for sure.
