(Each and every year, somewhere around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, our good pal Yarek invites us over to his place for some good Polish cheer.  This includes a wide assortment of meats, some pickled herring, and of course, enough vodka to blind a small army.  In fact, there have been a few times where we have ‘enjoyed’ the vodka so much that we were lucky to walk home without being hit by a car.  This is the vodka my closest Polish pal recommends to the world. – FATS)

Luksusowa is a 40% ABV vodka from Poland. The quality is considered to be amazing. The average price is around $14.84 per 750mL.

Most vodkas are made from the fermented mash of grain, whereas Luksusowa vodka, meaning luxurious and pronounced LOOK-SOO-SO-VAH, is distilled from potatoes. The result is a perfectly smooth vodka. Since its creation in 1928 in Poland, Luksusowa has maintained the highest production standards (its name literally meaning the highest quality spirit). 28 international gold medals crown its quality. Its perfect balance and smoothness makes Luksusowa ideal for cocktails, such as a Classic Martini. Luksusowa – the authentic luxury Polish vodka.
