Chopin Potato has an alluring nose with subtle notes of vanilla and green apple. It is creamy and well-rounded with a reassuring earthiness and a long, clean finish. There are no secrets and no additives in the creation of Chopin Potato. Each bottle contains only potatoes, yeast and purified artesian well water. These three ingredients – simple but superior in quality – are transformed into premium vodka through a method that has changed little over the centuries, including the use of a traditional copper column still.

Founded by Tad Dorda in 1992, Chopin Vodka is a small-batch, family-owned producer of single-ingredient, premium Polish vodkas. With Chopin's legendary potato vodka, Mr. Dorda pioneered the luxury vodka market in the early 1990s, leading to a world-wide appreciation of high end vodkas that had previously only been available in small batches.
Chopin is one of only a few vodka producers to distill its own spirits; most vodka is acquired from a trading market - with no information regarding its heritage and ingredients - and subsequently bottled. This is not the case with Chopin Vodka. There are no secrets and no additives in the production of Chopin Vodka. Each bottle contains only three ingredients – the highest-quality, naturally grown potato, rye or wheat, yeast and purified artesian well water. Moreover, the process by which Chopin Vodka crafts its vodkas is 100% sustainable; discarded potato mash is returned to the fields as fertilizer.
Chopin sources its ingredients from select local farmers in the Podlasie region of Poland, who grow their crops naturally, ensuring that only the highest-quality rye and wheat or late-harvest potato makes it into each bottle, along with purified water from Chopin’s own artesian well.
