Our first ever non-vodka review. Traditional polish Old Krupnik honey liqueur gets warm reception in this week’s episode.
Hangover verdict: 85 %
Krupnik is an ancient Polish liqueur which traces its roots back to the 1300’s. As such, it has been a traditional drink in Poland for centuries.
Despite its ancient pedigree, Krupnik’s popularity has not faded in Poland, where it commands more than 10 percent of the liqueur market, according to a 1996 poll by the trade journal ‘Rynki Alkoholowe’.
The skillful combining of a century-old tradition with modern production methods has produced an excellent liqueur, best drunk warm in the winter or on the rocks during the summer.
Krupnik (pronounced kroop-NEEK), is made of natural wild bee’s honey gathered in forests, and exotic spices. It has an outstanding honey-sweet taste and spicy bouquet with a strong, warming effect.
Once produced by the famous Baczewski Distillery of Lwow, Poland, Krupnik is produced today according to its original recipe by Starogard Distilleries of Gdansk.
