I used to think Vodka was awful but spent some time working in Uzbekistan and, after a few months of eating a meal and having a bottle of ice cold vodka plonked on the table, I changed my mind. Some aren't great, but some taste heavenly when drunk ice cold and neat.
I got turned on to vodka in 1974, I was visiting my Polish girlfriend’s relations, and drove over in a Ford Zephyr V6.
At the time, back home, I drank Scotch, sometimes with dry ginger, sometimes straight.
This was expensive in Poland, probably due to being imported.
Staying at her aunt’s place, in Poznan, we came down to breakfast, and there were slices of ham, cheese, pickles, hard boiled eggs, shredded red cabbage, rye bread, and a little shot glass of ice cold vodka next to your side plate, oh and coffee of course.
This tasted great, so in a bar that night, I got her to order me a double vodka, it was about one tenth the price of Scotch, after that I never looked back, it was vodka all the way.
Up until that time, all I could manage was prosz?, (please), and dzi?kuj?, (thank you).
I soon learned jeszce raz, dzi?kuj?, (another one, thanks).
Haha! I've got a Polish ex, so that really doesn't surprise me if her dad is anything near a typical Polish drinker!

We were in a small independent food emporium type place in the New Forest back in the summer.

The chap in there said that Rum will be the next Gin. Which suits me as Spiced Rum is my drink of choice!

If it led to a better availability of this in Europe, I'd be all for it! http://www.flordecana.com
