The legendary herbal liqueur from the time of Jaroslav Hašek's novel The Good Soldier Schweik is back!
To the original Polish recipe from 1901 containing anise, fennel, coriander and cumin we have added an additional five herbs which produce the unique taste and aroma of our worthy successor.
The entire complement of herbs is macerated for weeks in spirits derived from three-year-old mead and then stored in our cellars to mature.
The first batch was begun on November 17th, 2009, and was bottled on December 10th, 2010.
Kontusovka (or Kontuszowka in Poland) is pronounced as “CON-too-shohv-ka”
