Seller: upsynthau (50) 100%, Location: Sydney, Ships to: AU, Item: 291777303595 If you’re ready to go further than Russia for your vodka, you’re ready for Monopolowa. Established in 1782, J.A. Baczewski made vodka for the Polish and Austrian aristocracy. Using a family recipe of impeccable standards, Baczewski purified the highest quality, triple distilled, 100% potato spirit. Then, with Polish expectations, he produced vodka perfection. Smooth and neutral, Monopolowa will raise your vodka bar. There’s a jolt of anticipation that gives way to smooth excitement when the vodka hits your palate. It’s velvet. It’s smooth seduction. It’s a touch of sweetness. Freeze to sip it neat. Monopolowa was made in a time when imperialists vodka’ed all night, worked all day, then thanked Baczewski for un-heavy heads in the morning. A pure recipe meant a lot to Poles back then. Once you’ve matured to Monopolowa and joined the aristocracy of vodka aficionados you’ll never look back. And you’ll never look for anything else. A prominent U.S. trade journal wrote it is “easily identifiable in blind tastings…. it is one of the most flavourful and interesting vodkas.” Critic's Guide, Jan. 14, 2011 wrote, “Monopolowa—a simple, inexpensive and beautiful potato vodka handled minimally, yields a progression of soft floral notes and vegetal sweetness. As the burn of alcohol kicks in, potato skins emerge, followed by husky leaves and a lingering peppery tingle, as well as the sensation of 80 proof clinging to the back of your throat."
