The world’s first-ever Polish Vodka Museum to open with the initiative of Pernod Ricard and Polish Vodka Association
The Polish Vodka Museum will open in the Koneser Praga Center in Warsaw, Poland, a national heritage that historically produced some of the country’s leading spirits and vodka, including Pernod Ricard’s very own iconic vodka brands like Wyborowa and Luksusowa.
Funded by Pernod Ricard Group and the European Union, the contemporary space marries modernity and novelty with the 500-year old history of Polish distillery craft tradition as the basis of Polish Vodka – the protected geographical indication, rooted in the local culture and customs.
“Polish Vodkas are strategic pillars of our activities in Poland. We strongly believe that everyone visiting the museum will appreciate Polish Vodka’s fascinating history that is several centuries long. They will undoubtedly love its unbeatable quality and taste. I trust that this museum will strengthen awareness and knowledge about Polish Vodka,” says Eric Benoist, CEO of Wyborowa Pernod Ricard.
“Polish Vodka is inseparable from Polish culture and customs. One of the staple Polish exports known for its exquisite flavour all over the world, Polish vodka has joined French Cognac and Scotch Whisky on the list of Protected Geographical Indications. Our educational workshops will offer visitors the opportunity to discover various flavours and aromas of Polish Vodkas made from traditional Polish cereals and potatoes,” enthuses Andrzej Szumowski, VP External Affairs at Wyborowa Pernod Ricard.
The museum features a Vodka Academy Bar, which will offer tastings and educational workshops dedicated to Polish Vodka. There will also be an elegant lounge bar for visitors to relax and try out unique cocktails.
