Time stands still in Bialowieza, Poland's last remaining primeval forest. So still, the snap of a twig alerts the native Konik to gather and gallop at great speed through the ancient forest. Sure footed on their time-worn path, their shimmering tails brush and blend with the silver birch, stirring up the pure air of this enchanted place.
The primeval Konik is the elusive spirit of the forest. To catch a glimpse is said to ensure a good harvest for the making of great vodka. In times gone by Koniks were disturbed from their winter world, and harnessed to help with the harvest, gathering the precious grains selected for this most classic of vodkas.
Konik's Tail is produced in limited quantities in accordance with uncompromising Polish vodka-making traditions dating back over six hundred years and handcrafted under the watchful eye of Pleurat Shabani and Bernadeta Ejsmont the Master of the Cellar (Mistrz Ceremonii). A unique blend of the three grains ensures Konik's Tail Vodka is rich in flavour, full of character and distinctly complex. Three wild Koniks each represent one of the three grains in this unique blend, bringing alive the name and story.
Each bottle is filled and labelled by hand and signed by the Master of the Cellar. To ensure the integrity of Konik's Tail, all the grains coming to the distillery are furnished with a unique lot number so the grain can be traced back to the farmer's field and the source of the seed. It's a quality control which ensures the integrity of Konik's Tail the super-premium vodka.
