Chopin Vodka and designer Vera Wang have unveiled a limited-edition collaboration: Vera Wang x Chopin.
The project launches this spring in the U.S.
Wang selected a variety of young potatoes for Vera Wang x Chopin that has never been on the market, the company says. The potatoes used for the product 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.
“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,” says Wang. “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.”
During the creative process, Wang was determined to retain the Chopin bottle’s iconic shape, with a modern, architectural and sophisticated iteration for the Vera Wang fashion/lifestyle brand, the company says. 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 an “ode” to Wang’s 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,” says Tad Dorda, founder and CEO of Chopin Vodka. “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.”
Vera Wang x Chopin Vodka is available for presale on March 8 exclusively on ChopinVodka.com at 10 a.m. EST. In the weeks afterwards, it hits shelves across the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $99 per 1-L bottle.
