The history of Polish vodka
The first literary references to the production of the "clear water" date back to the 14th century and come from Poland (not Russia). Vodka at that time was called "Gorzatka", because vodka was understood to be a medicinal alcohol mixture or aftershave. Which doesn't sound so appetizing in this context. It was not until around the 18th century that the two terms merged. In Poland, too, the privilege of the aristocracy had an extremely positive effect on vodka quality, and Polish vodka was diligently traded and exported throughout Europe. The spirit even outlasted political and governmental changes of Poland. After a temporary monopolization of production, it was subsequently privatized again.
The fertile Polish soils are particularly favorable for the production of potatoes and grain. From these, high-quality vodkas are then produced, such as Belvedere Vodka - which can boast numerous awards - but also rarities like Buffalo Grass Vodka and U'Luvka Vodka in the curved bottle. From creamy smooth, sweet to dry vodkas - there is something for every taste. Our Polish vodka brand Chopin shines with versatile packaging design and special editions in Christmas ball shape for extravagant needs and festive occasions.
