Impress Dad with a Gift of Lvov Vodka! Cocktails + Food Recipes!

Buying gifts for Father’s Day is often a real trial. You want to get something Dad will really like and/or use but you don’t want to give him one more shirt, tie, or even pen. Why not try a premium spirit like Lvov Vodka? This is one superbly crafted vodka that’s made in Poland. The credentials for the brand  are all there and this gluten-free version has a super-smooth taste!  Read on for more information about this great brand and some recipes!




Vodka is versatile. It’s the invisible star of countless cocktail classics, from Bloody Mary’s, Screwdrivers, and Moscow Mules to White and Black Russians, Cosmos, and Long Island Iced Teas.

Vodka can be distilled from, well…just about anything. Most are made from fermented grains like rye, rice, barley, corn, oats, and wheat. Russian and Polish distillers make use of the abundance of potatoes that grow there. Lately, producers have been crafting interesting vodkas from beets, fruits, quinoa, and even milk!

Even the water makes a difference. Mineral water, glacial water, and chalky water all impart certain characteristics on the finished product, as does the way the water is filtered. It can be drawn through charcoal or bedrock, lava, meteorites, or quartz. Some producers go so far as to filter through diamond dust and black pearls.

Vodka has that certain “je ne sais quoi.” Yes, it’s odorless and flavorless, but different ingredients and production methods lend discernible characteristics to different vodkas.


LVOV Vodka, for example, is made from potatoes, distilled four times, then filtered four times through an activated carbon and candle process. The result has a mellow, slightly herbal, slightly sweet aroma with a touch of minerality and a creamy finish – a perfect foil for refreshing favorites like Vodka Tonics, the zesty LVOV Smash (recipe follows), and the classic Vodka Martini and all its delicious variations, like Appletinis and Chocotinis.

Store it in the freezer! Because home freezers don’t get cold enough to freeze spirits, many people like to stash their vodka on ice (BFFs, remember?) for ready-to-go refreshment value.

How do you pronounce LVOV? Impress your retailer and ask for “Luh-voff.” That’s how they say it in LVOV’s namesake Polish town.


Good news for gluten watchers. Vodkas made from fruits and vegetables are gluten-free, so people with grain sensitivities can indulge. Plus, 100% potato-based LVOV is not only gluten-free, but it’s OU kosher certified, too.

LVOV Vodka recently received an excellent 92-point rating by Tasting Panel and offers tremendous quality for its price point (MSRP: $9.99 750 ML., available gift boxed. See photo below).
