Luksusowa Vodka Review

I’ll be honest, while I appreciate all libations of the alcoholic variety, I’m not big on Vodka.  Which is exactly why I wanted to expand my palette and delve into this classic drink.  Think of it as a Vodka review from the perspective of a Vodka newbie.  I always want to make sure I do some background research on the brand the first time I write about it, so here’s what I found for the Luksusowa Vodka.

Brief History

Oh my, was I ever pleasantly surprised after visiting their website.  It is one of the wittiest sites I’ve ever come across, hilarious, yet tasteful (pun intended)!  While their product is on the forefront, the site is laid out as “The Man’s Guide to Manliness”, I love it.  And it is filled with “Manly Tips”, thirty-three of them to be exact.  I found a little doodle of their entire history since 1928, it was just below tip # 26.  According to their site Luksusowa Vodka has always been made in Poland and as of 2000 they are exclusively produced in Zielona Góra, a city in Poland.  They’ve won many accolades throughout the years , as of 2011 they have accumulated 42 medals and awards. read more
