While the Franco years had favored the self-sufficiency that had isolated the country after the Civil War, there was then a push for a cautious opening of the country, the expansion of mass tourism, particularly in Andalusia, and a liberalization of the economy.

During the High Middle Ages vodka was mostly used in Poland as an elixir or a cosmetic tonic, and it is in this use that the Polish tradition of flavoring is probably rooted. From early times, flavored variations of vodka emerged with mountain ash, apple, sloe, juniper, honey, or nuts, of which a number still exist today, like Krupnik and Jarzebiak. The simple rye schnapps of the farmers is called gorzalka. Large-scale production of vodka was first recorded during the reign of King John i Albert, who shortly before his death declared that Poles had the right to distill and sell their vodka.

To prevent this they sterilized the wooden barrels with sulfur and encouraged winegrowers to distill some of their wines as highproof concentrates, thus reducing volumes to between a sixth and an eighth of their original quantities. Later these concentrates could be diluted with water. The Dutch were the first to distill wine on a large scale.
