This Father’s Day, treat your dear old dad to a few cocktails from Chopin Potato Vodka. Chopin is earthy, creamy, full-bodied, and viscous and “a wonderful vodka to drink in a martini,” says Tad Dorda, Founder & CEO of Chopin Vodka.

As many as 40 potatoes (seven pounds) are required to make one 750-ml bottle of Chopin; grown in the Podlasie region of Poland the naturally high starch content (18%) of the potatoes contributes to a creamy, rich texture and mouth feel. Family-owned and handcrafted, Chopin sources their potatoes from small, practicing-organic farms of 250 acres or less that use only traditional growing, fertilization, and harvesting methods.
