Unlocking the full potential of wheat in one of the largest and continually developing production plant in the Baltics, since 1788.
that has been carefully selected according to stringent quality criteria.
It’s about elevating them to a whole new level through the unique understanding and experience we have gained over centuries of wheat cultivation and production. At Iecava Distillery, we are rediscovering and unlocking the true potential of wheat.
and we are, therefore, committed to responsible and sustainable processes that ensure the longevity of the species.
Our comprehensive methods encompass an A–Z process, converting grain into high-quality ethanol and unique ingredients that help create future foods, such as wholegrain protein concentrate.
Count Pahlen starts the construction of a brewery in Lieliecava Manor. A spirit distillery is also built as a part of the construction and by 1805 has expanded to begin the production of the liqueur “Eckau OO Kummel”.
The Iecava Spirit Distillery undergoes significant modernisation and develops its manufacturing processes. Spirit production expands from grain to also include potatoes and sugar beet molasses.
The carbon dioxide is used to provide health benefits and other treatments at the Ķemeri and Baldone Sanatoriums.
The production of raw spirit is used to produce alcoholic beverages by the production union “Latvijas Balzams”.
There is a reconstruction of the grain pre-processing and spirit distillation plants where 99.5% strength ethanol is produced and used to manufacture biofuel.
A major reconstruction is undertaken to ensure the production of food grade ethyl alcohol, and protein concentrate is of the highest standard.
Technological improvements are continually implemented in order to launch an innovative new product — wholegrain protein concentrate.
