In 1823 Hartwig Kantorowicz established a new, modern distillery in Poznan. That same year a Polish Newspaper announced a competition to find the finest clear vodka in Poland. When Kantorowicz presented his vodka, the president of the judging panel proclaimed it "Exquisite!" the rest of the panel agreed and it was named the best vodka in Poland. Thrilled by the words used to describe his vodka, Kantorowicz decided to call it, "Wyborowa" which literally translates as "Exquisite" in English. ´
The Wyborowa Single Estate concept originated from the 18th century when vodka was distilled at country houses and monasteries. The gentry and monastic orders actually competed with each other to produce the finest quality vodka. At this time distilling vodka also symbolised the achievements of Polish science. True to that tradition Wyborowa Single Estate now represents one of the greatest achievements in vodka making.
It is based on a unique recipe and is produced at a single distillery in Turew, which ensures consistent quality and character. The entire production process, which includes small-bath distillation, is supervised be Master Distiller's team on the estate.
