Polish vodka producer Bak's has launched its Bison Grass Vodka into the US market, the company announced today (13 February).

Bison Grass Vodka is a triple distilled potato vodka with 'natural flavours', including a herb that the company terms 'essence of Bison Grass'.
At 41% alcohol by volume, Bak's Bison Grass Vodka retails for around US$28.99 for one litre.
