Party Like It’s 1405
My maternal grandparents and my uncle emigrated from Wolia, Russia and came to America through Ellis Island.
I had a lot of Russian relatives and there were many, many weddings, wakes, graduations, birth celebrations and family dinners to attend when I was growing up. Great fun. And, always Vodka.
Vodka originated in what is now Poland and the word Vodka was first recorded in Poland in 1405.
It is likely a diminutive form of voda (water) meaning "little water".
Sobieski is the #1 Premium Vodka in Poland.
Bruce Willis is a partner in it.
I thought you might enjoy the Sobieski Vodka website and the Bruce Willis video clips that are on it.
Or, should I say Nostrovia!
