Wyborowa stems from the Polish word wyborowy which means excellent and it is an appropriate name. Trademarked in 1927, although being in production for the domestic market well before that, Wyborowa Vodka went on to dominant the export market until the 1960’s where they were close to bankruptcy. At this point they were bought by the French producer Pernod Ricard.
Wyborowa Vodka, or Wodka Wyborowa, is twice-distilled to create a pure rye vodka, produced using water from its own well. It is a smooth beverage with grainy notes which make it perfect to enjoy neat, or as a mixer in other concoctions.
