That’s why we were so intrigued by the idea behind Karlsson’s “vintage” vodka. The liquor is made from a single variety of potatoes grown on a single farm in a  single year. Batch 2009 is made exclusively from Solist potatoes, which Karlsson describes as “Sweden’s most exquisite Virgin New Potato”—possibly the most flowery language we have ever heard associated with a potato, but hey, we’ll go with it.
