WARSAW, Poland/NEW YORK – June 28, 2021 –
Chopin Vodka has created a wide-ranging line of artisanal liqueurs, debuting in five flavors: Amaro, Bitters, Orange, Lemon and Elderflower. The most comprehensive expansion from Chopin, the new expressions are made with Chopin Rye Vodka, natural herbs, spices, and fruits, ranging from 25 to 40 percent alcohol by volume.
Packaged in artistically illustrated, angelic-inspired bottles, the five varietals showcase the critical role nature and harvest play in these centuries-old distilling and maceration processes. Made by hand in small batches, the range starts with award-winning Chopin Rye Vodka, a combination of herbs, spices, and fruit that macerate in large clay pots from two to seven months that are then meticulously blended. Apart from Orange and Lemon, the varietals are rested in 50-year-old Polish oak vats before being bottled.
"We have always taken great care in the spirits we craft. We are passionate about every ingredient, every step of the process, and Botanika Angelica is no different," said Tad Dorda, CEO and Founder of Chopin Vodka. "We want to change the perception of what a mixer is, so this collection is pure enough to serve neat, with soda or elevate any cocktail. We made no concessions."
