Polish term or phrase:polmos
hello, I know it's maybe a silly question... I need to know what this term mean, it should be related to spirits - vodka etc. I found it in the names of several companies, so I don't have much context (e.g. Fabrika Wodek "POLMOS LANCUS"
Thanks in advance,
It's an acronym of Polski Monopol Spirytusowy (the Polish Spirit(s) Monopoly) that was created before WW II and gave a monopoly of producing and distribute hard liquer to the Polish state. The name and the monopoly was maintained during the communist era
