While wrapping up a stellar issue of Flaunt (stay tuned for The Peaches & Cream Issue!), this week called for vodka around the office. At one time, bison grass flavored vodka was a favorite drink of nobility, so it seemed fitting that we similar high-rankers at Flaunt should partake! The strand of grass floating in the bottle and the unusual pale green tint intrigued us. Anything to do with grass: we’re in!
Zubrowka Bison Grass Flavored Vodka is nothing new in northeastern Poland. The 400-year-old formula is based on the original vodka from the XIV century. Zubrowka is culled from an apparently mystical forest in northeastern Poland - the last primeval forest in Europe and home to Europe's last remaining bison herd. You can't artificially grow bison grass, so for the real deal, it's got to be from the Bialowieza Forest!
We’ll leave you with Flaunt's lively experience with Bison Grass Flavored Vodka:
"It tastes like the vodka that Laura Ingalls Wilder would drink. In a good way."
- Maxwell Williams, Editor
"This Polish bison grass spirit has a soft, citrusy flare to it and a smoothness that would sit well upon a bed of ice accompanied by a slice of lime. Question: How do you keep a Pole in suspense?"
- Griffin Goins, editorial intern
