Vodka Producer 2019: Zubrowka
It is made from rye, as are almost all Polish vodkas, and then infused with a specific grass, Hierochloe odorata, which is native to the Białowieża Forest in Poland’s northeast.
In 2010, the brand launched Żubrówka Biała, named ‘White’ in Polish and inspired by the snowy scenes of the Białowieża Forest. It has become the country’s bestselling vodka brand, enjoying a 20% share of the domestic market. The super-premium Żubrówka Czarna was launched in 2016.
