Luksusowa, the Polish word for "luxury, has a superior taste that is a result of its potato-base. Most domestic vodkas are distilled from corn, most imported vodkas from rye. But Luksusowa is painstakingly made from Poland's select potato crop grown exclusively in the Baltic coast region of North Poland. It takes ten times more potatoes than it would take of grain to make Luksusowa, the preferred vodka of people who can taste and appreciate the smoother texture and richer taste. Luksusowa is blended with pure, un-polluted water from artesian wells created during the Oligocene Epoch. From then until now, this water has remained bacteria-free and devoid of minerals that could crystallize in the presence of high proof alcohol to form undesirable sediment.
