Krupnik is an ancient Polish liqueur which traces its roots back to the 1300s. 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 per cent of the liqueur market, according to a 1996 poll by the trade journal ‘Rynki Alkoholowe’. The skilful combining of a century-old tradition with modern production methods has produced an excellent liqueur, is 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.
