There are few places on the Polish map that whisky lover should visit..
Certainly in this category you must include Dom Whisky in Jastrzebia Gora, a town with the northernmost point of the country.
Dom Whisky is situated in town centre, it is very impressive right from outside. It looks like it was ported straight from Scotland. Sandstone facade, the roof of slate, all topped with a traditional pagoda.
Outside you will find many other whisky accents such as part of a still from the Glenfiddich Distillery, machine for grinding grain or casks where distilates were maturing.
Interior is also fascinating. Natural materials, wood, stone, leather with elements of amber and a fireplace give the place a pleasant climate. There are also leather armchairs, sofas, chairs, wooden tables with fired motives of whisky. Everything on two levels – convenient, comfortable and at ease. There is also a cellar called Raj – the Paradise. Here and there you can find showcases of course dedicated to whisky. In front of the main entrance there is an impressive bar with whisky and whiskey from every corner of the world, everyone will find something for themselves.
The special praise for a professional, friendly and knowledgeable service with the Dom Whisky Ambassador Marcin Chojnacki, whom I greet warmly.
I think that the Dom Whisky is a great place to visit, not only for whisky enthusiasts. It is worth to come here at least for curiosity, drink coffee, tea or a beer and maybe you become infected with love for the water of life.
Dom Whisky also plays an educational role. Some time ago I had the opportunity to participate in Whisky and Food Matching with Glenmorangie conducted by Glenmorangie Brand Ambassador Karen Fullerton, as well as Diageo’s training on Johnnie Walker whisky. I have very nice memories on these meetings.
During my recent visit to Dom Whisky I tasted two issues presented by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and Ardbeg Galileo, that won the World Whiskies Awards 2013 in the category of World’s Best Single Malt Whisky. I’ll write about them in future posts.
