My name is Adam Szymkow, and I’ve been reading the ADI forum on a daily basis since 2013.  It is a great resource for craft distillers and I intend to give back to the community by contributing my knowledge learned over the past few years with fellow distillers.  I was using a different login in the past, but now that I’m getting closer to launching my vodka, I thought it would be more appropriate to reflect my brand name in my communications.

My distillery is located in the Niagara Region of Canada and it is called Polonée Distillery Inc., www.polonee.com 

to reflect my Polish heritage (I immigrated to Canada from Poland at a young age).  The first product that I intend to launch this fall of 2016 is called Kannuk vodka.  You can follow the progress of Kannuk vodka launch on the following social media platforms:




I recently got involved with GENIO Distilling Equipment as their Canadian and Western US representative:




I’ve been using their 50L still since early 2014 and have really enjoyed using it for my recipe development.

Please feel free to reach out to me by PM or email ca@g-still.com if you’re in my area and would like to visit my distillery and/or if you are interested in learning more about GENIO Distilling Equipment.

Na zdrowie! (Cheers in Polish)

I recently stumbled upon your Facebook page. I would be interested in getting a bottle of your Vodka so that I can use it in my 5-Day Distillery Workshops. I call myself Prohibition University and I collaborate several time each year to offer 5-Day Workshops through Urban distilleries in Kelowna, BC. At each Workshop we go to great lengths to offer a variety of tastings to class participants.  I trust that your Vodka will be available on your website? If people from across Canada at the Workshops taste it and like it, they will be looking to order bottles on-line from you. For more info on who I am, please see my website at www.ProhibitionUniversity.com. For details on our 5-Day Workshops, please see www.UrbanDistilleries.ca.

Hi there Kannuk. I am in the Collingwood area and setting up a new distillery. Have you gotten involved with the Ontario Craft Distillers Association?
