From the company’s founding in 1782, the Baczewski family created high quality Polish spirits, using potatoes as a base and seizing opportunities in new rectification processes, almost as they were being invented by Aeneas Coffey. The expertise of the family business quickly made the name ‘Baczewski’ synonymous with the word ‘Vodka’, popularising Polish spirits export and holding as the standard of premium quality until World War II. After the war, during which the distillery was destroyed, a distant relative took on the name as a trademark and restarted production as an Austrian company, staying true to the techniques and quality standard that made the brand famous.
J.A. Baczewski Whisky 1782
Produced using an original recipe involving the blending of different types of whisky distilled from barley malt and the grains of other cereals. Its maturing in oak barrels lends it an amber hue, which also gives it a slightly sweetish and extreme delicate flavour.
