The history of rice balsam
Rizky balm is a unique drink, bitter with hot-licorice relish, business card mista. And krіm tsgogo, nоgo dovga and tsіkava іstorіya, povna predilections, competition, intrigue and geopolitics.
Like a balm appears
As soon as people came up with the distillation cube and distillation, people began to drink alcohol. The degree during distillation grew, but they were unacceptable to the smell of fusel oils. To kill yoga, the simplest thing was to sip into the cauldron of overgrown herbs from the damp city. So і z’appeared balms.
They sold balms not like alcohol, but like lye, in pharmacies. At that hour, pharmacies were working around the center of health and beauty. They can cut their beards, buy tsukerok, take away faces in case of any ailments. Permissible, kind of melancholy. I got sick of melancholy in a woman, so I went to the pharmacy. The pharmacist will prescribe thirty grams of a liquor balm for skin attacks of nudga. And in that balm there are not only healing herbs, but sixteen degrees of forte. Zhіnka take a portion to a friend, marvel – where melancholy and podіlas.
Abraham Kunze Miracle Balm
Just like the ladies, who tasted the wholesome tincture, and the story of the famous rose balm began. The woman was not simple, but Empress Catherine Druga. On the eve of her visit to Riga, she fell ill, but the Vlasian doctor did not seem to change her mind. That same day, Abraham Kunze, who traded us all in the world: from old books to black balm. Vin chantingly poured out a glass of his balm to the tsar’s person, and the sickness took away like a hand.
It’s true, the evil tongues said that Kunze had beaten the empress with birch tar and chapels, cows were like that. Ale to learn from the stasis of cow’s faces for the empress, youmu was fenced in fear of death. No matter how it was, Katerina publicly praised the miraculous power of Kunze’s balm, which immediately ensured success in the market. On a sprig of rocks, the balm maker at Rizi tightened her belts.
Six years later, after the visit of the Empress to Riga, Kunze’s black balm was found in several pharmacies. I think, through those who died Kunze himself – although the exact date of his death is unknown. Mіstsevі merchants wanted to occupy a niche, scho zvіlnilas.
The right to swear and sell the black rose balsam was quarreled one to one in the courts of the two communities of Riga, Russian and German. Solomon’s decision was praised: the factory of the Russian merchant Lelyukhin took away the right to sell the balm throughout the Russian Empire – the Crimea of Livonia, that is, Riga and the outskirts, which the Germans saw.
Ale beyond the borders of Livland, wondrous black tincture is not small to drink. In addition, the brewers of other types of alcohol sought alcohol, sobi balm was not sold in taverns, but only in pharmacies. Also, Lelyukhin’s factory burned out for a sprat, and the production of balsam was monopolized by rizki nimts.
Balm of that war
As soon as Lelyukhin closed the factory, the Napoleonic wars began. Drinking on the balm jumped at the razi: now they bathed yogo for the treatment of wounds, that middle one, obviously, they took it. Zavdyaks of the Ukrainian and Polish medicine market will fill the balm with pomіtno virіs. When the hour came, it would go from handicraft-pharmaceutical to factory.
In 1845, Albert Wolfstein, who was the founder of Ryzy Austria, opened a bitter factory with the latest possessions. Due to advanced technologies, the temperature of the balm grew up to 45 degrees. From that hour, mayzhe sіm desyatkіv rokіv trival “gold of the century”. Virobnitstvo developed, the plant flourished, and the balm won prizes at international exhibitions.
In 1914, the First World War began. Ernesto Volfshtein, son of the plant’s manager, having robbed Riga, but having continued the plant’s pratsyuvati – rich in what zavdyaki these Shraders. Now they were called process engineers, and others called them recipe keepers. Ale and stench flew out of Riga in 1939, ahead of another light war. The stench took the original recipe for the balm with them. So vin ruin forever.
In 1954, the plant was relaunched, even in the Latvian Radianian Republic. The recipe for the balm was inspired by an empiric way: it seems simpler, they tried the leftovers of the old product, which they succeeded in, and tried to pick up a warehouse. The new warehouse of the pickers is saved from the taєmnitsa, but apparently, there are 25 components in the new one, including the burning tsukor.
After the year 1990, and especially after Latvia joined the EU, the production of a deep balm rose to its friendth Golden century. Narazі vіn popular not like faces, but like mіstseviy fahivets. And the shards in Riza are actively developing tourism, the number of those who want to try the balm is constantly growing. Let’s go around the classic black, cherry and currant balsams are released at the same time, “Element” – a balm with additional rum, that jewelry “Golden Balsam”.
Well, it certainly wasn’t enough, in Riza low-alcohol cocktails based on balsams, chocolate zucerkas and frosty ones are served with a taste for balsam. You can buy everything you need in any store – if you want to buy at the center of the city, it will take more than 30 more, less at the company’s store.
