About this deal

Zubrówka is a classic Polish beverage instantly recognisable from its crisp, subtle flavour profile, the blade of bison grass in the bottle, and even the majestic bison on the label. A blade of grass is inserted in every bottle by hand which gives the vodka its unique colour and flavour. This 70cl bottle of vodka has a unique flavour profile that is infused with the essence of bison grass, which is native to the Białowieża Forest in Eastern Poland. Bison grass contains coumarin, a glycoside with a distinctive fragrance, once generally used to flavour tobacco, cakes and beverages.

Our Bison Grass Gin is infused and distilled with the natural flavour of Hierochloe odorata grass which is more commonly known as Bison Grass. Two years later, we now have masses of organic Bison Grass growing in planters right outside the distillery doors, pretty cool right? It is well know for being a key ingredient in a famous Polish vodka, as patches of the grass can be found in the northern forests of Poland, near where the last herd of European Bison roam.

Finally, the vodka is filtered and the final product is bottled, with a blade of bison grass in every bottle for decoration. Super smooth and good enough to drink alone but also goes superbly as a mixer with tonic or coke (if you must) and especially, as already stated, with apple juicy (cloudy pressed is best) - it does taste like apple pie/strudel.
