I cropped the pictures below, but for some reason when they published they UNcropped. I'm too lazy to fix it, but you get the idea (left old bag, middle new bag, right new Grade A bag). Also I think my driver may think that we are alcholics or Vodkaholics because of all of the vodka I have been buying, I look for a new cheap bottle every time I am out... I need to have someone who speaks Russian explain the factory to him.
Also, it is going to take me a long time to go through every brand of Vodka in Russia because there are A LOT of Vodka brands here. I am going to try to sneak a picture of the Vodka aisle at Lenta the next time we go there.
I was running a little low on vanilla beans, and I asked my mom to order me some new ones off of eBay so that I could keep my factory in operation.
I assumed that I would get another bag like the one I currently have, small with about 250 beans. That would be the one below. Keep in mind that that is minus the 100+ beans that I have already used.
Yes friends, my factory will continue running for quite some time. :)
Here are all of the bottles that I currently have in production.
I think that before I am done with this, I made have a bottle of vanilla made from every brand of Vodka in Russia!
