Chopin Potato Vodka
Chopin Potato has an alluring nose with subtle notes of vanilla and green apple. It is creamy and well rounded with a reassuring earthiness and a long, clean finish. Chopin Potato is an excellent base for cocktails; served neat or on the rocks, it is unsurpassed. Try it in a CEO—a Chopin martini with extra olives.
There are no secrets and no additives in the creation of Chopin Potato. Each bottle contains only potatoes, yeast, and purified artesian well water. These three ingredients—simple but superior in quality—are transformed into premium vodka through a method that has changed little over the centuries, including the use of a traditional, copper-column still. As many as 40 potatoes (seven pounds) are required to make one 750ml bottle of vodka. Cleaned and left unpeeled, the potatoes are pressure-cooked to create a "mash," which is fermented for three days. The fermented mash is distilled four times, creating a spirit that is almost 100% alcohol. This spirit is then transported to Chopin's bottling plant in nearby Siedlce, where it is blended with artesian well water and filtered five times before its final destination—the iconic, frosted bottle that bears the profile of the brand's inspiration, Polish composer Frederic Chopin, and the signature of master distiller Waldemar Durakiewicz.
