Russian Standard's new television ad launched in the UK last weekend

Russian Standard has begun the roll-out of an international advertising campaign in the UK for its namesake vodka brand.

The company, owned by Russian entrepreneur Roustam Tariko, said late last week that the push launched in the UK on Saturday during Sky Sports' coverage of the Champions League final. Carrying the tagline “Vodka as it should be”, the television campaign will be complemented by outdoor and cinema placements across key UK cities.

Specific details on the scale and speed of the rollout will be announced later this week, a spokesperson for the company in the UK told just-drinks earlier today (31 May).

The TV ad can be viewed below.

Last month, Russian Standard and William Grant & Sons agreed to end their distribution agreements in Russia and the UK.
