In 2003, with just $6,000, I started the journey toward crafting my own vodka. It began with a small still in the basement of my home in Massachusetts, and within a year, I was on my way to Krakow, Poland. The main reason for the trip was to meet with a world-renowned vodka expert who was going to help me realize my dream, but as it turned out, I got much more than that.
Being the first member of my family to return to our homeland since my great-grandfather in 1960, I knew nothing about Poland. My first day there, I had no special place to go … so I just started walking. At first, it seemed I was making my way through a park, but that park led to a side street, and that side street led to the main square — the most beautiful I’d ever imagined.
From the moment I laid eyes on St. Mary’s Square, my life was changed forever. The very first person I encountered was a woman with a wide smile that radiated happiness … the spitting image of my deceased Babcia. In that instant, a feeling washed over me, and I recognized why maintaining our heritage had been so important to my father: This is Heaven. This is the place where V-One Vodka will take flight.
Today, our passion for crafting small-batch, impeccably clean-drinking spirits in the birthplace of vodka is alive and well. We are the leading producer of vodka made exclusively from organic spelt grain, the highest-quality ingredient available. V-One is distilled five times using a sophisticated proprietary process that removes impurities and delivers its famously clean finish. The result is an entire line of vodkas we are proud to share with you.
We hope you enjoy them all, and that you, too, will follow your passion!
