Review: Chopin Rye Vodka

by Jeff Ellingson

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.The aroma is sweet rye and pepper.  The sweet fruit entry builds to a vanilla and rye bread peak.  It fades with a sprinkle of pepper, mineral, and charcoal.  The finish is warm with a black peppery sting and butterscotch taste.  Chopin Rye Vodka is a tasty rye forward flavored vodka with sweet vanilla notes.
