Ste Pierre Smirnoff has a long history. Started in 1818 by Mr. Pierre Smirnoff when he began to make and sell vodka in Russia under his surname “Smirnoff”. The business was continued in Russia by his descendants under the “Smirnoff” name. After the Bolshevik revolution the owners of the “Smirnoff” business fled to Poland where they established a firm which did business in Poland, France and elsewhere. In August 1933, the Polish firm sold its rights for the United States of America to its trademarks, formulas and processes to Mr. Rudolph Kunett who beginning in 1934, established his New York corporation to sell “Smirnoff” vodka nationally, including sales in California. Ste Pierre Smirnoff a Connecticut corporation, organized January 12, 1939. It is the successor to the New York corporation of the same name. The registered trademark includes the name of the New York corporation, “Smirnoff”, the picture of a crown, and the pictures of four medals granted for the original Russian vodka in 1877, 1882, 1886 and 1889. It also registered “Pierre Smirnoff” on July 16, 1935.
