Konik’s Tail is produced in limited quantities in accordance with uncompromising Polish vodka-making traditions dating back over six hundred years and handcrafted under the watchful eye of Pleurat Shabani and Bernadeta Ejsmont the Master of the Cellar (Mistrz Ceremonii).
A unique blend of the three grains ensures Konik’s Tail Vodka is rich in flavour, full of character and distinctly complex.
Three wild Koniks each represent one of the three grains in this unique blend, bringing alive the name and story.
Nose: A sophisticated, rare and delicate nose with different layers of distinctive rich ripe grain, giving way to notes of spelt nuttiness, white pepper, delicate spice and citrus.
Palate: Velvety and elegant with a creamy, light buttery character, an impressive crisp nutty balance with underlying full bodied ryness adding depth and balance, and expanding further with aniseed freshness and spice. Notes of creamy vanilla and nuances of zesty fruit undercut by peppery basil
Finish: Rich in flavour, full of character and distinctly complex and most importantly very persistent.
Time stands still in Bialowieza, Poland’s last remaining primeval forest. So still, the snap of a twig alerts the native Konik to gather and gallop at great speed through the ancient forest. Sure footed on their time-worn path, their shimmering tails brush and blend with the silver birch, stirring up the pure air of this enchanted place.
The primeval Konik is the elusive spirit of the forest. To catch a glimpse is said to ensure a good harvest for the making of great vodka.
A unique blend of three grains
Each of the grains bringing its own distinctive character to the blend
Rich in flavour and surprisingly complex
It is complex and very well balanced
Serve with a lemon twist as a classic dry martini or on the rocks
On the nose there is a lot of character for a vodka with rich, creamy notes giving way to some citrus and nutty aromas. The mouth feel has a creamy texture with fresh citrus and basil flavours before the more complex nutty, rye characters develop. A surprisingly long and rounded finish, crisp and fresh right to the end.
A Polish vodka produced in column stills and filtered through silver birch charcoal from the Bialowieza forest, the last remaining Polish primeval forest.
Best served neat in a frozen glass. Or serve in a classic dry martini.
