Chopin Rye Vodka
Chopin // Poland
Introduced in 2011 as the second extension in the Chopin portfolio. It is made from 100% golden rye grown in the Podlasie countryside in eastern Poland. Distilled in a copper column-still.
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.
"The aroma is mild with peppery/spicy rye notes. Definitely more on the neutral side of things. The palate is of average body, but the finish is dry and spicy. A tad bitter. More of a bracing vodka--clean, sharp, and structured. Would cut through rich foods, so feel free to serve with dinner."
