    Polish vodka

    Looking to buy some Polish Zoladkowa vodka (think there are 3 flavours?) for a mate of mine as a surprise, but it is like rocking horse s--t in the UK... anyone got any bright ideas?

    Not sure if this is the same stuff or whether you want to buy online, but I have used this site before we no problems when I was looking at a good whisky for a mate.

    Zoladkowa Gorzka Vodka - buy Polish vodka at Drinkon.com

    If you got a large Asda near most stock it. Nowadays all the large ones have a Polish aisle.

    Might be worth checking that before making special orders,

    I know ours has the main three,
    Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka (Herb and Fruit)
    Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka - Crystal de luxe (Original vodka style)
    Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka - Mint

    ...but be prepared for a Dr. Who moment, as the place is much bigger on the inside that the out

    Oh, and while you are there, make sure you check out Cowmans for some sausages!

    Our Tesco stocks it down here, so may be worth checking them up there too.

    Heh... the one in Leed would _still_ be easier, but yeah, wed/thu infosec for me + the boss man. Bobby F is doing the "full gun" and Craig's banned coz he has to deal with some north yorkshire thing?

    Looks like the challenge is "find a supermarket where lots of poles live" - not sure where/if there exists a polish bit of leeds...

    There is a polish bit of leeds, and they do have a few stores, my cousin is married to a polish woman up there and she goes to some places...use the yellow pages for a place called Polski Delikatess (I think that is the name) and you should be good to go.
