The first Polish Museum of Vodka by the Theatre Square in Warsaw constitutes the largest collection related to the history of vodka in the world - the national spirit of Poles and at the same time the most popular alcohol on a global scale.
In many countries there are museums devoted to local spirits, at the same time constituting a form of preserving the national heritage of specific nationalities. The French are proud for their cognac, Scots for their whisky, Italians for grappa, and the Dutch for gin. Americans worship their bourbon, Mexicans tequila, while the pride of Poles consists in vodka which for ages now is manufactured in our country and constitutes a significant element of our history, tradition, and culture. It is also regarded as the best in its category as well as the most recognizable Polish product in the world.
Thanks to a collection of more than 10 000 exhibits, the visitors will be able to go on a journey through the history and production of vodka. They will learn the stories of families manufacturing vodka, the impact of the industrial revolution on the industry, but also touch the utility art and advertisement through the collection of bottles, glasses, labels, posters, or advertising signs. Due to the expert approach and richness of the collection, the exhibition is directed at literally everyone who is interested in the history of Polish dining, spirits, or region, the development of business based on a great passion, as well as everyone who enjoys interesting stories.
