Crownhart-Vaughan's introduction to her translation of Krasheninnikov's Explorations of Kamchatka mentions an Imperial monopoly on liquor, and the state's difficulty in enforcing it, in 1750s Kamchatka. One main principle of the alcohol business in Siberia was not serving native peoples.
A book called "The Russian vodka monopoly" describes another such plan, but one created in 1894.
Did the alcohol monopoly of Krasheninnikov's time cover the whole Russian territory? Were measures and prices standardized?
