Ultimat Vodka

40% ABV

Poland has long been considered the birthplace of vodka, and the clear liquor is arguably the most popular in the world. And like any other liquor, some brands are better than others. You can probably guess where Patron Spirits Co.'s Ultimat Vodka lands on the spectrum.

Crafted with wheat for smoothness, rye for complexity, and potatoes for richness, Ultimat Vodka is made in Poland where it's triple distilled by a master distiller to yield a smooth flavor that's pleasantly heavy in its body and has just a hint of vanilla in its flavor. Lovers of Patron's silver tequila will likely admire Ultimat Vodka's spicy finish.

As a premium vodka, Ultimat certainly is enjoyable straight thanks to its smooth flavor and ever-so-lightly minty aftertaste. Mix it with a dash of dry vermouth and garnish it with three green olives for the ultimate classic martini.
