10 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT POLISH VODKA

10 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT POLISH VODKA

Polish Vodka is world famous! Enjoyed by connoisseurs in Poland and around the world, it now has its own day. From now on, 13 January will be celebrated every year as Polish Vodka Day. This is no random choice, but marks that day in 2013 when the definition of what makes a vodka Polish was legislated! So this is a great opportunity to check out how much you know about this drink regarded as being part of Polish national heritage! We have listed 10 interesting facts about Polish Vodka that you might not know!

1. Polish Vodka can be produced from 5 types of cereal, or potatoes.
According to the current definition of Polish Vodka from 2013, Polish Vodka can be produced from rye, barley, oats, wheat, triticale or potatoes. What is more, all the raw materials must be of Polish origin.

2. Polish Vodka is on the list of Protected Geographical Indications.
Polish Vodka has been added to the group of unique products listed as Protected Geographical Indications. This indication can be used for products whose name includes a specific geographic area that defines their origin. It is also necessary for all the stages crucial to producing the quality of the product to take place within this geographical location. In this case, in Poland. This confirms that Polish Vodka is a very important part of Polish national heritage.
3. Rumor has it that 10,000,000 liters of vodka were spilled onto a Warsaw street in 1915.
This unusual and extraordinary situation took place on Ząbkowska Street. The perpetrators were Russian soldiers, who, on having to leave Warsaw in 1915, received an order to destroy all the alcohol stored on Ząbkowska Street. And so 10,000,000 liters of liquor flowed down through the street.

4. Pablo Picasso loved Polish Vodka.
This is confirmed by a famous quote by the artist: “The three most astonishing things in the past half-century were The Blues, Cubism and Polish Vodka”. We firmly believe that there are many more extraordinary supporters of Polish Vodka! 😉

5. Polish Vodka was an indispensable companion of a popular Warsaw dish.
So what was it? In the past, people in Warsaw often gorged on trotters in jelly served with two shots of Polish Vodka. This was popularly known as “binoculars with jelly fish”, and at the time was a very typical appetizer!

6. You would need 846 bottles of Polish Vodka to build a tower the height of the Palace of Culture and Science.
The Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw is 237 meters high. In order to build a tower of the same height, you would need to find about 846 half-liter bottles of Polish Vodka. It sounds like a challenge… 😉
7. Polish Vodka should be served at a temperature between 6 °C and 8 °C.
This is when you can best experience its taste and aroma. More importantly, ice-cold vodka loses its characteristic properties. Stick to the proven 6°C-8°C when you serve Polish Vodka.

8. The minimum alcoholic strength of vodka is 37.5%.
Not a single percent less! In line with its EU definition, a spirit drink with an alcoholic strength by volume of less than 37.5% cannot be considered a vodka. Traditionally, vodkas in Poland are characterized by an alcoholic strength of 40%.

9. Before the war, Polish Vodka was served in mikadkas.
What is a mikadka? It is simply the name for a small glass, one holding about 50 ml of vodka. Interestingly enough, there was once a saying “to drink a mikadka of vodka with a Catholic”, which meant to drink a small glass of vodka, with a herring chaser!

10. A museum of Polish Vodka is being created in Warsaw.
The Polish Vodka Museum is to open in 2018, located within a historic distillation and rectification building on the premises of the Koneser Praga Center. This was no random choice, it is the former site of the “Koneser” vodka factory in Warsaw, a building complex in the neo-Gothic style covering an area of 50,000 square meters between Ząbkowska, Nieporęcka, Białostocka and Markowska Streets. This is where those flagship brands of Polish vodkas: Luksusowa and Wyborowa, were once made.
