Oblomov continues his fascinating journey to Russian kitchen history. The next station is Polugar - famous bread wine that was popular long before vodka appeared. It's difficult and unnecessary to compare Polugar with other alcohol drinks. Russians had been drinking it for more than 400 years, it's become a traditional national aperitif best coming with rich meat dishes. It's not to make a shot - give Polugar time to reveal all facets of its rye taste while drinking it in small sips. You may already try three different sorts of Polugar at Oblomov: Bread, Pepper&Garlic, Buckwheat.
