U’Luvka Vodka is a luxury 40% Polish grain vodka, launched in the UK in spring 2005. U’Luvka Vodka, however is not so much a new arrival as a great revival and has roots going back to the alchemists of the 17th century Polish Royal Court.
CREATED WITH FRIENDSHIP - MADE WITH LOVE - DRUNK WITH PLEASURE In those heady days, the tradition at Court was to drink vodka from glasses without bases.
Once filled, these ‘legless’ glasses could not be put down until the entire contents had been drunk. Legend has it that the Court was almost permanently intoxicated and affairs of state were grinding to a halt.
The King and Queen called on Sendivogius, their genius Court Alchemist, to create a Royal Elixir, one that would allow the Court to drink all night and work all day. Sendivogius weaved his magic and created a spirit of such exceptional purity that it became legendary: the Court was saved, and just enough was never again too much…
U’Luvka Vodka is a recreation of Sendivogius’ unfathomable spell. Tasting Notes U’Luvka is distilled in small batches, by craftsmen, from the finest Polish rye, wheat and barley. It is fresh, clean and elegant on the nose, with distinct floral notes. You will find it creamy and lightly buttery in character, with impressive sweet, savoury and spicy flavours, aniseed freshness and a long vibrant grain finish.
This is a vodka for unwinding at the end of the day, kick starting the night, or for mixing a cocktail and indulging with friends. Unusually, U’Luvka tastes as good at room temperature, as it does chilled in the perfect martini, or straight on the rocks. In fact, like us, you can drink U’Luvka anyway you want. And as Ian Wisniewski, one of the world’s leading vodka critics has commented, “it would be difficult to make this any better.”
