Ultimat Vodka is one of the world's most distinctive vodkas. Created in the birthplace of vodka—Poland—it is the only vodka distilled from both grains (wheat and rye) and potato, a break from the traditional process of using just one or the other. The result is a subtle taste, smooth texture, and rich complexity uncommon in most vodkas. Ultimat Vodka is bottled in a striking cobalt blue crystal decanter.
