Historical Hiking Part 9

Vodka cottage

The house was used as a farm fire during the early 19th century. During the 18th century and well into the following century, large quantities of spirits are drank in Sweden. Getting a ration of brandy every day was considered a right for high and low.

Liquor production took place locally on the farm and the servants often got part of their salary paid out in cash. The large consumption of spirits in Sweden increasingly saw a problem affecting welfare and the economy.

House-burning, like the one at Wenngarn, was finally banned in 1860. During the 20th century, the house was rebuilt into a garage.
