Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka, first produced in 1956, is a market leading Polish brand of herbal vodka. The name of the vodka literally translates to “bitter vodka for the stomach”. Despite its name, Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka is a bitter-sweet, amber-coloured vodka with a unique spiced aroma and herbal flavor. Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka is made according to the orginial 1956 recipe, following the traditional Polish practice of infusing alcohol with dried fruits and herbs. The distinctive taste of Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka is the result of combining many herbs and fruits in a secret recipe including, among others: wormwood, gentian root, pepper, galangal, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka owes its distinctive colour to the addition of caramel. This herbal vodka has won several awards, including the Oskar FMCG 2006 award, CoolBrands award, the Gold Medal at Poznan International Fair POLAGRA 2000, and the Monde Selection 2009 (Grand Gold medal). Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka makes the perfect apertif or cocktail base.
