The history of Syrenka vodka goes back to the 19th century, when a child belonging to a Polish distillery, Marcin Sikorski, used to spend most of his free time playing in the family distillery.
Little Marcin soon decided to continue with the family trade, and during his first years of learning, experimented with all kinds of botanicals, alcohols and their different proportions and pairings. Marcin thus became a recognized master distiller. But something inside him urged him not to give up trying to find a special recipe. Guided by his intuition and experience, Marcin dedicated to study and review each and every one of the components that the tradition had considered essential in an authentic Polish vodka. It was then that Marcin Sikorski realized that the master distillers had progressively neglected the initial selection of water. There began the feverish search of Marcin to find the most purified, fine and unpolluted water that existed in the whole Polish orography. One clear autumn morning, while following the course of a river, Marcin glimpsed in the current the silhouette of a mermaid who seemed to want to guide him on his journey. After several hours of persecution, he reached the source of three fountains from a virgin mainspring. From that spring appeared the ideal raw material Marcin was looking for: an insipid, colourless and unusually pure water. This enclave is still only known by the Sikorski family, who convinced of the direct intervention of the mermaid in the discovery, gave their culmen vodka the symbolic name of Syrenka.
After finding the water and the name that would baptize his masterpiece, Marcin started the quest for the best grains of rye and wheat, which were subjected to four distillations to reach the necessary degree of purity, and a double filtering to eliminate impurities. The result is a vodka of unsurpassed smoothness, colourless and crystalline, inebriating in aromatic shades and with a kind, fine and balanced impression to the mouth.
