In the late 1970s the apparatchiks from the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia, tired of drinking vodka, decided to distill whisky. After several failed attempts production started in 1985 in small distillery in Prádlo, in the west of the country. The original idea was to use only local ingredients but the peat from South Bohemia didn’t work and it had to be transported from Scotland (and transport cost a fortune). Upon the Velvet Revolution (1989) and market flooded with spirits from all over the world Czech whisky was no longer made and stock was owned by then privatized company, which did not see future for it. In 2007 London-based Stock Spirit Group took over and subsequently launched Hammer Head single malt. The 23 years old expression comprises whisky distilled in 1989 from Czech barley and aged in Czech oak casks.
