Statement from Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich on the Cessation of the Sale of Russian-made Liquor

For Immediate Release: Sunday 27 February

In solidarity with the people of Ukraine, all products produced in Russia have been removed from the County’s Alcohol Beverage Services (ABS) stores. 

There will be an opportunity to purchase popular non-Russian-made vodkas, including Smirnoff, Ciroc, Tito's, Absolut, Svedka, Grey Goose, SKYY, Ketel One, and New Amsterdam. 

ABS wholesale customers and licensees make their own decisions about the availability of Russian-made products; however, they will no longer be able to order these products from ABS until further notice.
