Rosoglios and Ratafias

The last two owners, Roman and Alfred III Potocki, continued to modernize the distillery and to introduce new products.  Its reputation for high standards was recognised by prizes awarded at several international fairs.

In 1924 the newly independent Polish Republic set up a state monopoly for the production of clear vodka. The Łańcut distillery concentrated on producing rums, liqueurs and cordials (also called rosoglios or ratafias). The facilities functioned throughout World War II, where Alfred III provided employment and cover from the occupier to various refugees. In 1944 the Lancut estate, including the distillery, was confiscated by the communist regime.
