The Drinkable Globe countdown begins: Polish vodka

 

My next book, The Drinkable Globe arrives in just a few short months. (Pre-order it 20. ShotnPickle-Polandtoday!) I see it largely as an extension of this site, celebrating drinking cultures around the world. It features insights on what, where, how, when and why folks drink on every continent. As a sort of countdown to its fall release, I’m going to offer small teases from now until November. Those teases will be in the form of photos, videos and even a few book excerpts here and there detailing the wide world of booze.

The first is a vodka-soaked video I shot in Poland last summer (when I was still calling the video series “The Drinkable Week”). Enjoy! And don’t forget to Pre-order The Drinkable Globe!

 

The Drinkable Week: Polish Vodka Crawl

I’ve always had a bit of a difficult relationship with vodka, but a recent trip to Gdansk and Warsaw, Poland completely turned me around. (It may have been the pickles!)

I also got to stroll through fields of rye that ultimately will become Belvedere Vodka
