About Chopin Wheat Vodka
Chopin Vodka is named after the famous Polish classical composer Frédéric Chopin. Produced by Polmos Siedlce, their classic vodkas are quadruple distilled from either potatoes, wheat, or rye grains. It is a small-batch Dorda family affair that first made its debut in North America in 1997. Though they are most renowned for their potato vodka, their label has expanded their portfolio to include what are considered to be some of the "finest single ingredient" vodkas around, recently adding vodka-based caramel, chocolate, and coconut liqueurs to the lineup as well.
They are going against the popular belief that the spirit should be as neutral as possible, refusing to use any flavoring and coloring and proving that the single ingredient used in each expression can shine through. Distilling their vodka in the Chopin distillery in the Polish village of Krzesk, they claim a whole 7 pounds of potatoes are used to make a liter of the spirit. All the ingredients are sourced locally and most of the process is done by hand, using a copper column still.
Their Wheat Vodka expression is the most delicate of the bunch. Light, sweet, and floral, it's a perfectly crisp summer sipper or an awesome base for refreshing cocktails.

It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
