Radio Show #196 – Paul Kozub, Creator of
V-One Vodka

Paul Kozub, a Western Mass. entrepreneur, family man and creator of the wildly successful V-One Vodka, took a chance.

Leaving behind a promising career in banking, he pursued his desire to create an original vodka.

The result is V-One now found in liquor stores, bars and restaurants throughout the Pioneer Valley.

Paul’s efforts led him to explore his own heritage in Poland, prompting a love affair with that locale and its culture that continues to inform his work.

Though V-One is a national and international brand, Paul’s deep attachment to Western Mass. keeps his home base right here.

In this conversation, you will hear Paul’s personal history, his thoughts and feelings through 13-plus years of experimentation and trial and error.

Paul’s almost lyrical account of his first excursion to Poland, and this year’s cocktail creation for the Big E, are additional highlights!
