Chopin – name of single-ingredient vodka, 4 times distilled from potatoes grown in the Polish region of South Podlasie. It is produced by Siedlce-based Podlaska Wytwórnia Wódek Polmos. Chopin was first introduced to North America in 1997. The production is done in small batches.[1] Seven pounds of potatoes are used to make every bottle of Chopin.[citation needed]

The vodka is named after the famous Polish Romantic composer Frédéric Chopin.[2]

Chopin potato vodka has been submitted to a number of international spirit ratings for evaluation, including the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Wine Enthusiast, and the Beverage Testing Institute. Outcomes have generally been favorable, particularly in the latest years. For instance, between 2006 and 2011, Chopin potato vodka earned one double gold, three gold, and two silver medals from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.[3] Proof66's aggregate rating, which incorporates these scores and others, puts the spirit in the Top 90th percentile among all rated vodkas.[3]
