Chopin Potato Vodka
Chopin // Poland
Chopin Potato Vodka was first launched in 1992 and was first introduced to the US in 1997. This family-owned brand produces single ingredient vodkas with no flavored vodkas in their portfolio. Their 100% potato vodka is made mostly from potatoes sourced within 25 miles of the distillery, some of which they grow themselves. They are cooked whole with their skins prior to fermentation. The vodka is distilled in a copper column-still. Bottled at 40% ABV.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"Chopin Potato Vodka has a dark, earthy aroma to be found but you have to really dig your nose in the glass to get it. The vodka is full, but soft on the palate with very little slickness on the mouth. An overall savory profile, the vodka has a little bite on the finish along with a gentle earthy finish. "
