Our mission and vision

Polish Vodka is not only our national heritage, but it is also an essential attribute of ‘Polishness’ recognised all across the world. It also a crucial element of Polish culture, which has been served on Polish tables during celebrations for centuries. The goal of the Polish Vodka Museum was to create a space where we could present vodka’s unique history. We are going to use appealing and modern means to familiarise the visitors with the process of vodka production, raw materials used for its production as well as its different flavours.

Once the visitors enter the museum, they will find interactive exhibitions, presentations and screenings, which tell the history of vodka production throughout the ages, as well as information and fun facts about the impact of vodka on shaping Polish culture and about its international career.

Our mission goes beyond spreading knowledge, though. After an informative tour of the museum, the visitors will have the opportunity to taste Polish Vodkas in a special food and services area.

The museum is sponsored by the Polish Vodka Association. The permanent exhibition was created by the Nizio Design International architectural design studio and the visual identification of the museum was created by graphic designer Andrzej Pągowski.

The building

The Polish Vodka Museum is housed in a historic distillation and rectification plant within the premises of the Koneser Praga Centre. The location was not chosen at random. This is where the Warsaw Vodka Factory “Koneser” used to operate, a building complex in neo-Gothic style taking up 50 thousand square meters between Ząbkowska, Nieporęcka, Białostocka and Markowska Street. This is where the flagship brands of Polish vodkas – Luksusowa and Wyborowa – used to be made.

Currently, the premises belonging to “Koneser” Vodka Factory are being successfully restored and will soon become an important place on the cultural and business map of Warsaw. It will soon become the showcase of contemporary Warsaw, where the authentic 600-year-old history of Polish Vodka meets modernity and novelty.
