Polish Vodka Facts and Production


Vodka production in Poland keeps up for more than 600 years!

Production of Polish vodka is split into two stages. The first stage takes place in small farm distilleries. There the agricultural distillate is made.

In the second stage, the spirit goes to a distillation and rectification plant. Then, it is mixed with water. The final purification of vodka begins.

You need to remember about two things before you call vodka the Polish one. Firstly, that two stages needs to take place in Poland. Secondly, the alcohol needs to be made of Polish raw materials.

Nowadays, around 100 distilleries are operating in Poland.

Polish vodka can be made of 5 types of cereal and also potatoes. In the current vodka definition you can find that it can be produced from oats, rye, barley, whear, triticale or potatoes.

The majority of people are consuming ice cold vodka. In fact, 6°C to 8°C is the best temperature to serve it. Then vodka will have all of the characteristic properties.
