Pronounced ‘Zhit-Nee-Ya’, the name comes from a Polish word used to describe the smile of a village elder or mayor. Extra Zytnia is a dry, aromatic Polish rye vodka. After distillation, small amounts of apple spirit and aromatic fruit are added, giving a subtle flavour.
A premium version called Specjalna Zytnia is also produced.

Clear with slight sediment, very faint straw hue – not crystal clear.

Aroma:

Inviting grainy nose with faint stewed apple and bread crust.

Chirpy, clean grain palate with hints of pear, and lightly spicy cooked fruit and apple. Cinnamon and pepper spice emerge mid-palate.

Aftertaste:

Mellow but vibrant white pepper finish.
