Poland has made a name for its fruit and herb-based crafted nalewki and extensive heritage of beer fermentation. Thanks to the ‘craft revolution’! It has opened doors to hundreds more of small brewing companies over the past few years. You may be taken aback knowing that Poland manufactures wine, too. Though it’s still atypical to have a taste of Polish wine, it’s worth a shot in one of a great deal of gourmet restaurants in the western Lubusz Province, near its largest  city Zielona Góra and around the exquisite  Kazimierz Dolny in the Lublin Voivodeship.

It will not come as a surprise for Poland to mass-produce cider since it’s a country famed for apples. Ironically, cider was almost entirely missing from the Polish liquor reservoir whilst its heap production in the 19th century. Poland’s alcohol only picked up a boost in the span of ten years. Extensively produced Polish cider can be bought in nearly all food marts, but the traditionally manufactured ones from brewed apple sans glucose add-on are not to be missed!
