Non Alcoholic Vodka has the taste of vodka but does not contain any alcohol. Non Alcoholic Vodka was first presented in the exhibition Shiftscale – Sculpture at the Extended Field in 2006 at the Kumu Art Museum, Tallin – a museum neighbouring one of the largest Russian ghettos in the city. More than 25 % of the Estonian population are Russians of which a majority are isolated from the rest of society because of cultural differences: they do not speak the language, are less educated, have drinking problems etc. For the opening of the exhibition a non-alcoholic vodka bar was serving the drink.
