The name of our distillery could be mistaken as being the name for a tiny hamlet deep in the mountains of Poland or the name of an obscure member of the Polish royal family, but unfortunately, the origin is less than spectacular. The name Panezski is actually a combination of ‘Paul and Vanessa’, using the ‘Pa’ from Paul and the ‘Nez’ in place of Ness (Vanessa’s nickname). Then to give the name a bit more of a European feel it was decided to just add ‘Ski’ to the end. Thus forming “Panezski”, not so romantic as being the name of some long-lost royal family member, but still an interesting story, nonetheless.
