Polish Vodka Museum
It is located in the nineteenth-century building of the former Warszawska Wytwórnia Wódek Koneser vodka factory. In the interwar years, recipes of famous Polish vodkas such as Wyborowa and Luksusowa were created in it. You will learn about the 500-year history of the most famous Polish alcohol, the evolution of its production technology, traditions and customs associated with it. Walk through the five interactive galleries and learn where the first distilleries were created in Poland, how much a glass of vodka was worth, how the liquor was consumed in Polish homes, and where such vodka-related customs came from. Compose your own recipe for a tincture and learn about the distillation equipment of Jan Pistorius. His invention revolutionised distillation in the 19th-century, enabling 85% pure alcohol to be obtained in a one-off process. See also a collection of original bottles from different eras, including a full, never opened bottle of cherry vodka J.A. Baczewski from the 1940s.
The crowning point of the visit will be a tasting at the Vodka Academy, where under the supervision of a specialist you can compare the flavours of vodkas from rye, wheat and potatoes. There is also a restaurant with tables set above the historic furnaces of the former factory, a bar serving drinks based on Polish vodka and a 24-hour bistro.
