Lichtwitz & Co

E. Lichtwitz

Old Liquors, E. Lichtwitz

E. Lichtwitz & Co. was first founded in 1861 in Troppau (now Opava), then the Austro-Hungarian empire. Emanuel Lichtwitz founded a distillery there where he made liqueurs like kümmel, cream liqueurs and their speciality, a herb-infused cognac called "Jungbrunnen."

The company did so well that they became a purveyor to the Austro-Hungarian emperor. The company also imported wines and cognacs. To secure supplies apparently, two of Emanual Lichtwitz's sons settled in Bourdeaux and in 1875 started a business in buying and exporting wine and cognacs there: that's why the label says "seuls concessionairs" - dealers only. In 1948 the new Soviet Government in Troppau nationalized the E. Lichtwitz company. The French branch of the company seems to have been active for a while but disappeared as well in the 1950s.
