Potocki expresses the full character of Polish vodka and continues a proud family tradition. It is distilled in central Poland at a small facility surrounded by fields and forests, chosen for its artisanal approach. At every step of production care is taken to emphasise the natural taste, starting with the choice of ingredients. Superior quality rye is sourced from the fields surrounding the distillery. The resulting mash is only twice distilled - as every additional run would unnecessarily strip the alcohol of its character – at low speeds to ensure balance and smoothness. The distillate is tasted at regular intervals, and only selected when optimum criteria are reached. The resulting pure alcohol is watered down to the required strength and tasted again by Jan-Roman Potocki and the distiller. The vodka is left to rest for a few days and then bottled without resorting to the customary charcoal filtration, illustrating again at this final stage their commitment to producing a high-quality spirit with an authentic and distinctive personality.

The past decade has seen plenty of vodkas hiding behind highly-massaged marketing stories, but amongst them are some true gems - with plenty of heritage. Potocki has one of the strongest histories in distillation, with original documents tracing its production back to 1784. The spirit today is made from rye and is lightly filtered before bottling to retain its strength of flavour and classic earthy finish. A ‘must try’ on this list, for quality, consistency and history alone. BBC Good Food Guide (Mar 2018)
