Review: Chopin Rye Vodka

Chopin Rye Vodka was launched March 2011.  Rye joins the Original Chopin Potato, and Chopin Wheat Vodka.  It is produced at a distillery located in the picturesque village of Krzesk Poland with a history dating back to the 1900th century.  The Dorda family acquired the distillery in 2003, restoring its traditional operations to their former splendor as well as modernizing it’s bottling and packaging facilities.  Chopin Rye Vodka is cultivated from farm to bottle with the finest naturally grown golden rye grown within 25 miles of the distillery.  The vodka is distilled in the distillery’s original four column copper still.  It is then filtered five times.  Purified artesian well water is blended before bottling at 80 proof.

Review: Wyborowa Wodka

Wyborowa Wodka is made by Polmos Poznan at a distillery dating back to 1823.  Wyborowa translates in English to Excellent.  Wyborowa Wodka was launched in 1927.  It is made from rye grain grown in Western Poland and water sourced from a 200 meter well.  Three kilograms of rye are needed to produce one liter of vodka.  The pure rye is mashed and distilled once at 40 small individually owned agricultural distilleries.  The spirit is then distilled in a copper pot still.  After arriving at the Wyborowa Distillery the raw spirit is rectified in a three column continuous still.  The spirit is then filtered through natural cellulose plates and mesh filters.
