Roger Stone, sounding very much like every other two-bit Russian propagandist, announced on his podcast he was going back to drinking Russian vodka after other brands were just too “woke” for him.
Stolichnaya rebranded as ‘Stoli’ back in March after Russia invaded Ukraine, trying to distance themselves from Putin’s invasion. And although originally a Russian (Soviet) brand, in recent times the company has made its product in Latvia, with some operations in Ukraine with offices in Luxembourg.

On his podcast on Friday, Stone explained he was ditching Stolichnaya after a label announced the company supported Ukraine after it was invaded by Russia.
“That means the people who make Stolichnaya vodka support child sex trafficking, money laundering … and the arming of actual Nazis on the ground in Ukraine,” Stone alleged.
“As for Stolichnaya, I will never drink another sip of their swill,” he vowed. “And therefore, I’m going all-American, Titos, made in Austin, Texas, is my new brand.”
One day later, Titos was no longer Stone’s new brand.
“I decided to switch to American-made Tito’s until I learned that they sponsored a drag queen show. Now I have no choice but to use Russian Standard Vodka in my extra dry Martinis,” Stone announced.
And the Stoli label that Stone found so offensive.
