Yes, its true - the birthplace of vodka can be found in Poland dating back to the early Middle Ages. And vodka (Polish: wódka), is not only the official national drink of Poland, it is the centerpiece of Polish life, enjoyed at most every celebration and occasion. In fact, in this land where vodka began, Sobieski is the number one premium vodka. So youll forgive us if we bristle at the notion promoted by those who claim that vodka had its origins, well, elsewhere. Theres frankly a lot that many people dont know about Poland, and weve only just begun to tell our story.
