Record in the publication Catalog der Ausstellung, 1873:
Barczewski's L.M. Wtwe. & Söhne, k.k. l. priv. Rosoglio-, Liqueur- und Rumfabrik, Lemberg, Galizien.
Liqueure und Spirituosen. Ehrenvolle Erwähnung Paris 1867.

In 1899, the manufacturer had the title 'Imperial and Royal Warrant of Appointment' (k.u.k. Hoflieferant).

The company was founded in 1782 by the Jewish merchant Leiba Bacheles (Baczewski). Until 1875 the company was called L.M. Baczewski. After that the it was owned by Józef Adam Baczewski.

The company developed until 1939, when, at the beginning of World War II, the factory was bombed by Luftwaffe planes and the rest of the equipment and stock was looted by the Bolsheviks. The fate of the last co-owners of the factory - Stefan and Adam Baczewski - was tragic. In 1939, both Baczewski's were arrested by the NKVD and shot in 1940 along with Polish officers in Katyn.

After 1945, the descendants of Józef Adam Baczewski rebuilt the factory in Vienna, producing alcoholic beverages under the brand name J. A. Baczewski.
