Episode 63 features Żubrówka, a Bison Grass flavored vodka from Poland. I ended up with two different bottles. First is Żubrówka brand, 750mL at 40% ABV, or 80 proof and it sells for between $25 and $30. Second bottle is Bak's brand of Bison Grass vodka, 750Ml at 40% ABV, or 80 proof and it sells for $21.
Enjoy this episode with Żubrówka on ice, or mixed with apple juice.

Żubrówka has a cinnamon flavor component to it, and the most popular way to drink it is with apple juice - resulting in a cocktail that tastes like an apple pie.
