The story goes that the three partners in the brand, two of whom had been involved in bringing Stolichnaya to the U.S., initially thought of Russia or Poland when they considered a vodka venture. They changed their minds when they met Rene Vriends, of A.H. Wanders B.V. distillery, who suggested the quadruple filtering method used for gin in Holland if they were to produce a sipping vodka with no flavoring.
Yes! also uses fine wheat grain, but sources water purified through reverse osmosis. After distillation the spirit goes through the four-method filtration process: (in order) chill, charcoal-, micro- and crystal-filtering.
