2007 was the year of the Pig in the Chinese calendar, during which we gave Potocki Wódka an improved look. For us less parties, more travelling and work at the factory making vodka.
In March, visits to the Polish mountains, where glassware is hand-made. In June, a short trip to Bordeaux to oversee the application of the “Potocki blue” and silver foil on waterproof labels (so that they stay put in your ice bucket!). August was spent at the distillery, where J-R Potocki was busy tasting and producing a new batch of Potocki Wódka. The 2007 vintage is special indeed, with a soft, creamy mouthfeel followed by characteristic rye notes; looking smart in a brand new bottle!
