Great Women Spirits by Francis Ford Coppola The Countess Walewska Vodka
2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold Medal Winner
The Countess Walewska is one of history’s great symbols of purity and loyalty. Known for her beauty and intellect, she was a fervent Polish patriot. Forced to give up everything in her life for the good of her nation, she became influential during her era as she had the ear of Napoleon.
The Countess graces their potato vodka, which represents loyalty to the traditions of the finest potato vodkas from Poland. It takes over 9 pounds of potatoes to make one bottle. It is an expensive undertaking. Less than 3% of the vodkas in the world are potato based, and they think that makes theirs pretty special.
This vodka is clean and neutral, but retains its own personality. Slightly sweet cocoa on the nose with a hint of brine and pepper. Subtle sweet honey taste with a noticeable creaminess, a signature of fine potato vodka.
Great Women Spirits honors the individual accomplishments of women throughout history and tells their largely forgotten stories.
All of our spirits are small-batch, ultra-premium and classically styled, and are proofed with pristine Napa Valley spring water that has been naturally filtered through the base of an extinct volcano.
Made from the distillation of anything containing fermentable sugars, Straight Vodka is a clear and unaged spirit. Cereal grains like wheat, rye and barley are the most commonly used bases, but modern Vodkas are now made from crops as diverse as sugar beets, grapes and potatoes. Ideally Straight Vodkas should be colorless, odorless and flavorless. They are sipped chilled and neat, or used as a base for a variety of cocktails, from the Martini to the Cosmopolitan.
