Szambelan Vodka

Some years back, samples of Polish vodkas new to the United States market poured through our front door. We were consistently impressed by the quality. Then, for reasons unclear, the great Polish vodka deluge ended. Thereafter, the vodka samples we got mostly came from distillers in the U.S. Go figure.

Well, we are very pleased to report that a Polish vodka has arrived— SZAMBELAN VODKA.

This 100% rye vodka won a gold medal at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. We now understand why. SZAMBELAN VODKA is an astonishingly smooth spirit. Although it is made from rye, a grain that can provide robust flavor, SZAMBELAN’S makers have distilled and filtered it so as to greatly reduce the rye notes. KETEL ONE drinkers looking for something new probably would love this vodka. Well done. (Rating ****1/2).
