Chopin Rye is extraordinarily silky with a medium body, a rich, balanced finish and a lively hint of spice. Clear with subtle aromas of rye dough follow-through, it is an elegant, artisanal vodka for sipping and superior cocktails.
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.
