J.A. BACZEWSKI POMARANCZOWKA
Baczewski’s Pomarańczówka – orange liqueur – features a wonderful bouquet thanks to its production process, based on an original pre-war recipe. Its sweet and intriguing taste is obtained by using the grated peel of fresh, ripe oranges and a carefully selected mixture of herbs and seasonings. We then add triple-distilled potato spirit to the ingredients, and mix with crystal-clear mountain water. Baczewski’a orange liqueur can be served as an aperitif or alongside a cup of freshly-brewed coffee. It also makes a great addition to desserts.
J.A. BACZEWSKI HAZELNUT
Thanks to its beautiful amber colour and excellent aroma and flavour, Baczewski’s Hazelnut was already a well-known and popular beverage centuries ago. We continue to make it today using the very same family recipe and the best natural ingredients: roasted hazelnuts, nougat chocolate, and vanilla with a touch of allspice. This infusion thus prepared is then mixed with triple-distilled potato spirit, to which we then add crystal-clear mountain water. Baczewski’s Hazelnut may be taken as an aperitif or digestif, but tastes even better with freshly brewed coffee and a spoon of fluffy whipped cream.
J.A. BACZEWSKI OVOVIT
Baczewski’s Ovovit is a unique egg-based liqueur that we make using an original pre-war recipe, using only natural and fresh ingredients. The first stage involves blending egg yolks with milk until a smooth consistency is obtained, following which we add a touch of vanilla and a pinch of a special mixture of seasonings. Then we add triple-distilled potato spirit, and by mixing the ingredients slowly we create a thick, top quality liqueur. A portion of ice cream topped with Baczewski’s Ovovit, or a freshly brewed cup of aromatic coffee with a few teaspoons of the beverage, are genuine delicacies.
J.A. BACZEWSKI JEZINOWKA BLACKBERRY
Baczewski’s Jeżynówka – blackberry liqueur – is made according to an original pre-war recipe. It owes its bouquet to the juice squeezed from fresh, succulent blackberries, particularly from a thornless variety, its large fruit boasting an impressively varied, subtly sour and tart taste. Triple-distilled potato spirit is added, and the liquid then diluted with crystal-clear mountain water. Baczewski’s blackberry liqueur can be savoured in small glasses as an aperitif, or with dessert to round off your meal. Cocktails based on this liqueur are well worth trying; it tastes fantastic – and is also refreshing and invigorating – served with chilled sparkling wine.

J.A. BACZEWSKI GIN
Baczewski’s Dry Gin has been made according to a traditional family recipe for decades, using nothing but the best natural ingredients. We produce it using triple-distilled potato spirit and crystal-clear mountain water, while its exquisite and well-balanced flavour has been achieved thanks to a carefully selected mixture of aromatic extras: juniper berries, coriander, aniseed, ginger and dill, as well as lemon and orange peel. There are many ways in which Baczewski’s Dry Gin may be served. It makes an excellent aperitif, and is frequently served on ice or with tonic. However, it tastes best mixed with vermouth in a classic dry martini cocktail.
J.A. BACZEWSKI Wisniowka Cherry
Baczewski’s Wiśniówka – cherry liqueur – is a genuine delicacy and a legend of flavour; it was one of the most popular beverages in pre-war Poland, well-known and valued by all. We make it today just as it used to be made – using only natural ingredients. The carefully chosen mixture of fresh and juicy varieties of sour and sweet cherries is combined with triple-distilled potato spirit, and thinned with crystal-clear mountain water. Baczewski’s cherry liqueur makes an excellent aperitif, as well as a great addition to coffee or afternoon tea. Served in small glasses, towards the end of dinner, it tastes exquisite
J.A. BACZEWSKI MORELOWKA APRICOT
Baczewski’s Morelówka – apricot liqueur – has the taste of the legendary pre-war abricotine. We make it today as it used to be made, based on a traditional family recipe, and using only natural ingredients – ripe and juicy Polish apricots and a mixture of herbs and seasonings, selected with exceptional care. Triple-distilled potato spirit and crystal-clear mountain water are added to the prepared ingredients. Baczewski’s apricot liqueur is an excellent aperitif or addition to your evening meal. It also makes the perfect choice to go with dessert, crowning your Sunday dinner.
J.A. BACZEWSKI PIOLUNOWKA
Baczewski’s Piołunówka – wormwood liqueur – is a quality beverage, well-known and popular in Poland long before absinthe; people were already drinking it in the late 16th century. The secret of its taste and bouquet lies in its unique recipe – a carefully selected mixture of herbs, including wormwood, lemon balm and aniseed, mixed with triple-distilled potato spirit and diluted with crystal-clear mountain water. Its distinctive bitter taste makes Baczewski’s wormwood liqueur a perfect aperitif, or a small glass of it will be the culmination of any dinner. Though excellent in cocktails, mixed with a few drops of a sweet liqueur, it tastes best with water and sugar – and served in the classic ‘French’ manner so valued by gourmets and connoisseurs.
