Since the 14th century, bison grass has been used to create a unique flavoured vodka, Zubrówka (say ‘ZOO-BROOV-KA’). The infusion adds smoothness and unparalleled freshness to the original singular spirit from Poland.
In a remote corner of Poland, in the North Podlasie Lowland, lies a mysterious place called Bialowieza, the last primeval forest in Europe, home to the continent’s only herd of bison and a distinctively aromatic plant - bison grass. This wild grass resists cultivation and, to this day, is still carefully harvested by hand.
Nose: Wonderfully complex and enigmatic, with grassy herbaceous aromas (mainly thyme and lavender) with vanilla and spring flowers.
Taste: Fresh notes of herbaceous, lavender, jasmine tea and citrus flavours open up further with a hint of tobacco, chocolate and café latté.
Finish: Aromatic and smooth.
