Tincture tasting in Kraków


What will you get during our two-hour tasting meeting in the center of Kraków?

What can you taste?
Tincture (in polish “nalewka”) is an aged liqueur/cordial, made with fruits, sugar, honey, herbs or flowers and spices, macerated in vodka or rectified spirits.

Nalewka is a traditional polish alcohol, in older times, many different types were stored in cellars to welcome guests with a small glass of homemade tincture. Many tinctures were considered to have medicinal properties. Another tradition cultivated by some families was to create and bottle Nalewka on the occasion of a child’s baptism and then open the bottle at the child’s wedding.
