Today is National Vodka Day, so we’re raising a glass to the spirit and toasting to its versatility.
And we’re saluting it with one of our favorite vodka brands, Chopin. This boutique, family-owned distillery sources local ingredients for its spirits from a pristine district in eastern Poland, about 100 kilometers east of Warsaw. Every part of the distillation process—from growing, cooking, fermenting, distilling and bottling—is done on the Dorda family property, so they can oversee the excellent quality that goes into making every bottle. While Chopin makes vodkas from rye and wheat, their potato expression is one of our favorites on the market.
Chopin Potato Vodka is the world’s most awarded potato vodka, and for good reason. With a full-bodied, creamy texture and earthy, clean flavor, it’s perfect sipped on the rocks or mixed into a cocktail. We especially love it in savory-leaning drinks like Martinis and Bloody Marys because it can stand up to more robust flavors and ingredients.
To celebrate National Vodka Day, we’re mixing up this Steak & Chopin Potato cocktail. Mixed with vodka, Worcestershire sauce, and garnished with a skewer of steak and potatoes, it’s the perfect drink to whet your appetite for a celebratory meal to come.
