Pretty generic name – Right? Well, this is anything but generic taste. Wodka vodka actually has quite a storied history.
While walking through the Polmos Bialystock distillery in Eastern Poland, a relic from Poland’s communist era was discovered, Wodka Vodka. Polmos was a Polish state-owned monopoly that controlled the spirits market. Founded in the late 1920s, it was the leading vodka producer in Poland, mostly because the communist authorities forced all distilleries to become a part of the monopoly. The bottle that was found was pale blue with a tattered paper label indicating, simply “Wodka”. Although the generic label, “Wodka” meaning Vodka in Polish, is similar to what American’s would consider a blue label brand, Wodka is a traditional formula founded on the backs of the true founders of Vodka, the Polish people. This simple design and off-center, hand-stamped price screamed “old work and authentic” – a minimalism that led to the creation of a new brand of “Wodka”.
This vodka is clean and tasteless just as you would hope a premium vodka would be. However, it doesn’t cost you nearly the doe. Go to your closest retailer and demand a bottle of this low priced premium stuff. If you aint satisfied let me know but I would sure be surprised……
Oh yea, and before I forget – the other half of the blog post photo might explain the picture a little better….
And just in case you thought they weren’t creative enough with their graphic design – Here is one of my favorites….
Just plain cool. Cocktail junkies equate this to “spiked juice;” urban legend traces its origin back to the American Bar in London in the 1930’s. WÓDKA™ Vodka, Grapefruit Juice and Ice – No B.S. – just like us. You can also salt the rim to create a “Salty Dog” and easily add another option to your personal drink menu.
