About Sobieski Vodka: Sobieski Vodka has an exceptional story that doesn’t need gimmicks. It begins in Poland’s rich Mazowse fields where the golden Dankowski Rye is harvested. This grain has been recognized for centuries for its distinctive character. Crystalline water from Oligocene springs contributes to the silky finish of this noble spirit. It is then continuously distilled, creating one of the purest and smoothest vodkas in the world.
Sobieski represents a careful blend of authenticity and modernity that enables us to meet the strict requirements of the Polish Product Origin Control System. In other words, making vodka in Poland, of Poland, is what’s required to call Sobieski true Polish Vodka. Or as you’d say it in Gdansk, Wódka Polska.
And while we feel your choice in vodka should be based on your liking it, not someone else’s opinion, Sobieski received a Gold Medal, 95-point “Exceptional” rating, and “Best Buy” award by the Beverage Testing Institute.
Sobieski Vodka, the #1 premium vodka in Poland and one of the world’s bestselling and fastest growing vodka brands, makes no compromises on quality and exemplifies the height of Polish craftsmanship and authenticity. Building on a noble heritage, Sobieski Vodka is produced exclusively from the revered Dankowski rye at the Starogard Gdanski distillery dating back to 1846.

Eleve Restaurant gives us our own space in their beautiful restaurant.
Eleve is “Floor-to-ceiling windows, multihued Brazilian hickory floors and chocolate tones ranging from milk to bittersweet give the main dining room some style and comfort. Earnest, knowledgeable servers, a smart international wine list and an inviting bar put Élevé on a par with its big-city counterparts.”
“Élevé feels urban and sophisticated, yet comfortable and calm. The predominant color is that of milk chocolate, with a few bright accents—a pink orchid, a glass bowl of limes, a bowl of oranges—that stand out appealingly. A glass facade brings in a nighttime view of the dramatically lit white birch trees on the southeast corner of Civic and North Broadway.”
What people are saying about Eleve Restaurant:
Élevé is an award winning restaurant serving Vietnamese style cuisine in a beautiful two-story space located across from Walnut Creek City Hall and one block from Lesher Center for the Arts. Easy parking at the Lesher Center public garage one block away. The restaurant offers a casual dining experience that delivers exceptional cocktails, wines, personable service and high quality food. The menu is an update on classic Vietnamese cuisine.
“The bar at Élevé Restaurant features inspired interpretations on pre-prohibition era cocktails made with fresh and organic ingredients, house-made syrups and mixers, and liquors from artisanal, small-batch producers, with a menu designed by the inimitable Thad Vogler.”
“The drink—on a list created by artisan bar god Thad Vogler, who helped develop the cocktails at Slanted Door, Camino, and Flora—is not all that unlike Élevé itself.”
“There’s an alchemy in the Brooklyn cocktail served at Élevé in Walnut Creek—a surprising result conjured from ingredients that are both old-school 1910 and local and organic 2010. Made from artisan liquor and essences, with a slab of hand-cut ice and what smells like an entire grove of refreshing orange peel, its layers of flavor would captivate even the most committed teetotaler.”
“Élevé This cocktail is a beautiful mix of complex flavors—rye, vermouth, amaro, bitters—to be savored before enjoying Vietnamese specialties.”
“Vibrant food and drinks made from top-notch ingredients play beautifully in the sleek, elegant setting”
