Chopin Vodka, the world’s first luxury vodka, and fashion designer Vera Wang will release a limited-edition collaboration – Vera Wang x Chopin. This vodka-fashion collaboration will launch in the spring in the United States.
For the project, Vera Wang personally selected a special variety of young potatoes that have never been on the market and that are sustainably grown and sourced without chemicals or pesticides in the village of Krzesk, Poland, where the Chopin Vodka distillery is located. The resulting product is naturally gluten-free and has a distinct taste, aroma, complexity and character.
The iconic fashion designer has discovered so much about vodka’s nuances over the past two years while co-creating her own from Tad Dorda, founder and CEO of Chopin Vodka, whom she refers to as the ‘Master of Vodka.’ She adds that she, “will never ever look at a potato the same way again.”
Working with Chopin Vodka was one of the most educational, fascinating and collaborative experiences I’ve ever had, learning how vodka is made and the various nuances of taste and texture. I am so grateful for the opportunity to co-create a spirit I adore so much, with such a storied and respected distiller. It is the culmination of my long love affair with vodka in the most personal and expressive way. – Vera Wang
Vera Wang wanted to retain the Chopin bottle’s iconic shape, with a modern, architectural, and sophisticated iteration for the Vera Wang fashion/lifestyle brand. From the matte bi-color bottle to her personal messaging, she describes this project as being an “amazing journey.” The poem on the back of the bottle is a tribute to Wang’s unique and highly personal relationship with vodka.
Vera Wang’s personal touches on this project make it a truly authentic partnership. She has been actively involved in the entire process with her mind, heart, and sophisticated taste. We are honored to have our first artist-designed collaboration with legendary Vera Wang, who is so passionate about the discovery of vodka and is a sincere Chopin Vodka connoisseur. – Tad Dorda, founder and CEO of Chopin Vodka
The limited-edition collaboration will be available for presale on March 8 exclusively on Chopin Vodka.com at 10 a.m. EST. It will be available in the weeks following in select retailers throughout the United States for a suggested retail price of $99.
