A premium vodka created by Polish Prince Jan Felix Michal Korybut Woroniecki – Kavka – has launched in Australia.
The inspiration for Kavka came from Jan’s two decades of experience as a restaurateur. He has launched world-class restaurants in London – Wódka and Baltic – and after tasting hundreds of different vodkas during his time in hospitality he realised that most modern vodkas filtered out much of the taste and had lost the tradition of individuality. Using this as his inspiration, he created Kavka.
He uses traditional production methods, popular since the 19th Century, to create the fine rye and wheat spirit, with the resulting spirit being reminiscent of how Polish vodka used to taste in the days when every vodka was distinctive and every distillery had its own bold personality.
As for its name, Woroniecki said: “During Poland’s prohibition period in the early 20th century, Kavka was the code for getting a drink in a restaurant, so it’s a slightly cheeky name that combined my love of vodka and restaurants.”
Drinking it as a shot from the deep-freezer will highlight the apple tones, while sipping it at room temperature will emphasise the plum notes.
This bold distinctive character has already won Kavka a Gold medal at the 2020 Warsaw Spirits competition.
“For a long time the vodka space has been overshadowed by innovative gin makers and the growth in popularity of tequila, rum and whiskey as drinkers look for personality in their spirits,” Woroniecki said. “Now it’s time to reinvigorate vodka!”
