Merged: What is your favourite Polish vodka?

My number 1 favourite is Khazakstani Snow Queen. For the Polish stuff it's Sobieski and Krupnik. Same distillery so not surprising they taste virtually identical but Krupnik is less expensive. You pay more for the name with Sobieski.

As a English Vodka drinker,

What is a good English vodka? Never knew the British even made the stuff.

Most countries make it. Try French vodka.

I drank this rubbish once with a friend of mine because it was cheap. Ended up annoying people on internet chatrooms while the worse for wear.

You might be surprised, but the best polish vodka is Luksusowa.

I agree. Failing that, I like Sobieski. Forget premium vodka. It's nothing like the difference between blended and single malt Scotch.

I tried Grey Goose, it's good no doubt but very expensive. Snow Queen is the smoothest best tasting vodka I ever had, hands down. Surprisingly reasonably priced too. It's hard to find though especially in Poland.

According to the International Wine&Spirits Research whiskey consumption has doubled in Poland in the last four years.,124630,12401977,Whisky_rosnie_ja k_na_drozdzach__Czy_warto_w_nia___.html

I used to prefer vodka something has happened to the best vodkas, they taste 'cheaper'. Jameson Irish Whiskey and Jim Beam Bourbon are my favorites.

Merged: Does the PF drink Vodka?

So guys and gals, what with it being New Year's Eve on monday, I thought we should discuss the tools of the trade: what to get hammered with? More specifically, I'm asking what vodka do my fellow PF forumers drink? I'll start us off with three of my recent favourites.


No. 1: Krupnik. Everyone I know's drinking that, and it's p. good for its price. It even goes down semi-warm.

No. 2: Soplica Orzechowa. I've never been a fan of "colours" in my booze, and I generally avoid sweet vodka. But after a recent visit to Poznan, where the above product is drank universally, I've become rather partial to it. Sweet as foock, but damn does it taste good. Probably causes a monster of a hangover, though.


No. 3: The classic. Some people don't like it, but I find you can't go wrong with zubrowka and apple juice. In the last few years the company's widened their product variety, and I'm told that their clear vodka is also good. I'll stick to the tried and tested formula.

And as an added bonus, If you're feeling brave: zoladkowa gorzka with milk. as in a shot of booze followed by milk. I know it sounds crazy, but trust me - give it a go. Not something to overdo, you understand, as this is a method for considerably shortening your night out.

I prefer wine but once or twice a year I fancy vodka.

Having a sweet tooth, I have always liked Stomach Bitter


which, paradoxically, isn`t bitter at all, but my recent discovery was simple traditional Wyborowa, which, frozen, also tastes a little sweet. Amazing!

I was going to answer you, kondzior, but, before I could do so, the thread you started was......


into this one, which is a thread about only Polish vodka. (You see 1.75 liter bottles of Svedka brand vodka are one sale here in Southern California and thus lately almost every home I've visited has poured it for me quite liberally. I was even going to make a Polish history reference about being "deluged" ((as Svedka is distilled in Sweden)) but, alas, someone has moved your OP here.)

Kondzior, ask mods to go back on their action of merging your thread. After all, Polish vodka isn`t the only one drunk in the world.

I recently "discovered" Luksusowa (Polish) vodka in my local grocery store. I used to love drinking white wines, but the sulfates in the wines suddenly became problematic for me. So, I switched to vodka. This is the only one I really seem to enjoy. It is very smooth, not "biting" at all.

Na Zdrowie!

My Polish aunt, who is 86 and lives in Warsaw, still makes her own vodkas. Her white chocolate vodka is simply the best vodka I have ever tasted.

Yes, but it is no longer vodka, only nalewka.

* Debowa
* Pan Tadeusz
* Zubrowka

Wódka can even save a life :)

The sound is in English

Żubrówka Palona (Roasted) - aged in oak casks. More of a strong liqueur than the traditional 'bison grass vodka'. Sweet, aromatic and delicious - even when drinking it "neat" at room temperature.

Merged: Which wódka to take from Poland back home?

We are going home to Belgium shortly for a long-awaited vacation. Question and dilemma...which wódka to take? In Belgian supermarkets you can buy Wyborowa and Żubrówka - be it at twice the going rate in Poland...So not these ones. I was thinking of Pan Tadeusz or Dębowy. Chopin is also nice....

For my mother I am taking as always Krupnik.
23 Jul 2014 #594
Look at the bottle design and pick the one you love best. When a Polish vodka is chilled enough, it tastes good no matter the brand ;)

Question and dilemma...which wódka to take?

The Mlody Ziemniak 2013 is pretty good but won't be at all like what people expect vodka to be (serve it room temperature):,5l/4770

The Mlody Ziemniak 2011 is probably better but not twice as good (but is twice the price):

The Wyborowa Single Estate is very interesting and has an excellent bottle (serve it from the fridge):

Siwucha is pretty cheap and a 'rediscovery' of a pre-WWII vodka. It comes with a wax-sealed cork rather than a screw-top (as a hint that once you open the bottle you really should finish it):,id-44003

If you look hard you might be able to find it in its presentation box form:

Also, the Vestal Kaszebe and Vestal Pomorze are both excellent artisanal vodkas which are well worth checking out.

Not really :). But as for now I will go for the wódka - Polish wine I need to investigate a bit more :)

I can't get enough of Old Krupnik. It's dangerously nice.

Delicious stuff.

Siwucha is pretty cheap and a 'rediscovery' of a pre-WWII vodka. It comes with a wax-sealed cork rather than a screw-top (as a hint that once you open the bottle you really should finish it):

Siwucha was introduced a few years ago now (at least 15 years back) as a 'retro' vodka, using a pre-war recipe that gives it the delicate grey colour and the slight oleisty-ness. Quite a few people in Poland have told me they don't really rate it, since the taste there is for very clean, crystal-clear vodka but I like it and it makes a great present.

Worth mentioning that a few times I've taken a bottle of Żytnia along to bring a bottle sessions (I like the old-fashioned label) and people have thought it strange that I've taken that one and not Absolwent, Wyborowa, Bols, the usual stuff.

I see a lot of J.A. Baczewski vodka in the shops now. Looks interesting but not cheap.
