Mongols have made shimyn arkhi for many centuries, since the first Mongolia people, Huns. Making shimyn arkhi is a complex process and requires a lot of skill and the right matelials. The process of making shimyn arkhi has been passed down through many generations, from father to son, and mother to daughter.
First you will need a few important items: two bowls, (one large bowl and one slightly smaller bowl), a cylinder or bottomless barrel (the cylinder should fit snugly around the large bowl), a bucket, and of course a good fire. Another critical material is cow’s milk. Once the cows have been milked, the milk must be churned. The milk is churned 500-800 times, the more the better. The milk must be changed into buttermilk and yogurt. Next, a fire is made. Then the large bowl is placed over the fire and the yogurt is poured into the bowl. Immediately, the bottomless barrel is put over the large bowl and the smaller bowl is placed on the top of the barrel. The smaller bowl is then filled with water, the barrel remains empty. Inside the barrel is a bucket that hangs between the two bowls. This bucket is very important, because it catches the newly made arkhi.
Now the preparer must wait. The yogurt is boiled. As the steam from the yogurt rises, it hits the bowl of cold water; eventually the water will get hot, so the preparer must change it several times, but “be careful of the steam!”
Once the process is completed, the arkhi should be tested. A little bit of arkhi is poured out and thrown into fire. This is considered an offering to the God of fire. If the arkhi makes a flash (a blue flame) then the arkhi is good. As one can see, this is not a simple process; before shimyn arkhi can only be made in the countryside of Mongolia. But now Shiguderi, also referred to as a “Nermel” vodka, is made using the method of Traditional Mongol with the latest technology with years of scientific research, hard work and created by Mongolian scientists to ferment and distill the natural grass grazed milk to ensure relaxation. So you can buy Shiguderi mongolian milk vodka from big supermarkets.
