Chopin Rye Vodka
Chopin Rye is extraordinarily silky with a medium body, a rich, balanced finish, and a lively hint of spice. Clear with subtle aromas of rye dough following through, it is an elegant, artisanal vodka for sipping and superior cocktails. Savor Chopin Rye in a CEO—a Chopin martini with extra olives (pimento-stuffed for a touch of red). Or, try it with cranberry juice, a splash of soda, and lime.
Only the finest golden rye, grown naturally in the Podlasie countryside, is used to produce Chopin Rye. There are no secrets and no additives—just rye, yeast, and purified well water, which are transformed into premium vodka through a method that has changed little over the centuries, including the use of a traditional, copper-column still. Harvested locally and stored in silos at the historic Chopin distillery, the rye is first pressure-cooked to create a "mash." The mash is left to ferment for three days, then distilled four times to create a spirit that is almost 100% alcohol. At Chopin's bottling plant in nearby Siedlce, this spirit is blended with artesian well water and filtered five times to create the world's finest rye vodka. Packaged in the iconic frosted bottle that bears the image of the brand's inspiration, Polish composer Frederic Chopin, it is topped with a distinctive red label that distinguishes it as Chopin Rye.
