Smooth Polish Rye Vodka

Sobieski vodka has recently launched on the shelves of Morrisons, so what better excuse then to try some?

This Polish vodka is named after the 17th century Polish King and soldier, Jan III Sobieski, so we are expecting something with oomph, especially with the price point of RRP £16 for a 700ml bottle.

What we did experience was a pleasant surprise. A smooth and fragrant vodka.

A clear and bright liquid in the glass, which had long thin legs. There was a slight sweet note to the vodka, and not that strong alcohol smell that I usually pick up. Tastewise, this was a winner. Smooth and slightly sweet. A very easy to drink Vodka. This went down well both straight and in a cocktail, we tried it with a So’ Cranberry, recipe below.
