I'm not much into vodka, but is Belvedere and Chopin really so much nicer than that old standby Wyborowa? Does it go down more smoothly, have a distinctive flavour or what?

Snow Queen is the smoothest best tasting vodka I ever had, hands down.

Snow Queen is by far the best vodka I've ever had too, so smooth it's ridiculous. However, seeing as it is a Kazakh vodka I don't think it counts as a Polish vodka ;)

Zubrowka is easily my favourite Polish vodka if I'm having it with apple juice.

If I'm just shotting vodka then I'd probably go for Pan Tadeusz.

Pan Tadeusz.

It is not too bad. Personally i prefer Ukrainian or Russian vodka but if i had to choose Polish vodka i would probably go for "Sobieski" or "Żubrówka".

On new years eve i was served "Skittles Vodka" which was somewhat of an unusual, creative and quite tasty experience.

Is it true that Żubrówka now makes a clear vodka as does Krupnik?

They do, and it immediatly became the best selling vodka in Poland because it was so good.

Reading Pan Tadeusz by Mickiewicz to my kids we ran into a passage about Polish gentry of 1811 drinking famous vodka from Gdańsk. It is called GoldWasser - Gold Water - and indeed contains little flakes of gold.

Watch it poured into glasses

famous vodka from Gdańsk. It

Unfortunately, today's Goldwasser has nothing to do with Gdańsk. A German distillery has trademark rights.

And where do they produce it? Do they still use Polish gold?

I just picked up an interesting Polish vodka made here in Michigan by Detroit City Distillery in the Polish district of Hamtramck's Detroit for Fat Tuesday.

It's being sold throughout the State of Michigan.
Paczki Vodka with a price tag of $30.
Made from raspberries and Polish and Michigan potatoes.
Haven't tried it yet but will keep you posted.

I think I saw that in NJ too but 1.75L was for 49.99 so I chose Grey goose for 39.99.
Do tell how is it.
The label/btl presentation didnt look very good to me.

I am not a great fan of spirits.
My daughter bought me a bottle of Jack Daniels for Christmas and though I like it, half the bottle is still in my cupboard.
When it comes to wodka, I have to say that I am not a great fan of this high alcohol, low flavour spirit.
But if forced to chose I would go for Zubrowka every time!

JD is actually considered cheap whiskey. Its mostly Rednecks that drink it, has a weird taste to me. Stay away from Southern Comfort as well.

Chopin is good:)

Thanks! Having read it, I started looking through my collection of whiskey which I got last year from grateful parents of students at the language school where I work. I didn`t find JD but one Jim Beam and sth unusual - Craft Whisky which is Scottish, Polish and American in origin.

The serial number on it is A 0885.

It seems the Polish producer buys crude distillate from Scotland and ages it in American oak barrels. Amasing.

The original, craft whiskey was created from the best combination of Scottish distillates and grain whiskeys, aged for three years in American oak. The secret of its recipe lies in the combination of the experience and talent of Polish artists and the tradition of Scottish masters, dating back to 1814.

I don`t like whisky so it is waiting for a visit from my wife`s relatives who are into boozing.

Scotch is good whiskey. I know a lot of Irish ppl and love shots of Jameson. I have to be careful when I see them or Im taking a taxi home. Haha

I like Kentucky bourbon... Makers Mark. I don't know if you can get it, but if can you should enjoy it.

Try Knob Creek as well....

Perhaps, the vodka topic has already been discussed and there is nothing more to add.

Unless you have some more information about Vodka?

Of course not. Vodka is the so called river topic in Poland.

Vodka which used to be produced before the WW2 comes back to Poland . E.g, Baczewski vodka - when I saw those labels a few years ago I had no idea where they were from. While Baczewski was the biggest producer of vodka in Poland in late 19th century and later on too.

After 1945, the descendants of Józef Adam Baczewski reactivated the company in Vienna and spirits are still produced there today under the JA Baczewski brand . The JA Baczewski brand returned to the Polish alcohol market, first in the 1990s as a product of Polmos Starogard Gdański under an Austrian license, and again in 2011 with specially designed original bottles (Polish designs differ from others released on European markets) in the shape of decanters and labels.

Very observant Lenka, however......
In Poland, pączki are eaten especially on Fat Thursday (Tłusty Czwartek), the last Thursday prior to Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.

In North America, particularly the large Polish communities of Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, and other large cities across the Midwest and Northeast, Paczki Day is celebrated annually by immigrants and locals alike.

The date of this observance merges with that of pre-Lenten traditions of other immigrants on Fat Tuesday.
With its sizable Polish population, Chicago celebrates the festival on both Fat Thursday and Fat Tuesday.
