Pakruojis Manor Distillery was established and lovingly nurtured in Lithuania’s historic north, where quality drinks have been produced since the early 16th century. It was originally constructed by the esteemed pharmacist Knut as an essential part of the Manor’s apotheka. The production of quality drinks came later.
Towards the end of 2018, we brought life back to the distillery. It is here that we take our inspiration from the local traditions, and the exceptional quality of the ingredients from the surrounding forests and fields, which are used extensively and exclusively in the production of our artisan products. It takes time and care to produce quality botanically-infused spirits, that is why our herbs and spices are matured from 2 to 9 months to ensure their distinctive qualities. Differing techniques allow us to achieve the flavoursome results which we have become renowned for, our production methods and the quality of our ingredients ensure that some of our products do not easily fit into any single category. It’s for that reason that we like to say – Spirits for free spirits!
