For 50 years, Stawski Distributing has continued to grow and maintain its position as the leading importer of alcoholic beverages from around the globe and plans to continue introducing new beers, wines and spirits from around the world.
Stawski was first to distribute beers such as Mousey from Switzerland, McEwan’s and Tenants from the United Kingdom and Broken Hill from Australia before the imported beer trend began. Although concentrating on Central European products, Stawski also takes on niche products from other regions, such as the Indian beers Golden Eagle, Flying Horse and Taj Mahal. Stawski is also the exclusive importer of Singha, a Thailand beer – generally the only one sold in most Chicago Thai restaurants.
Distributing to 30 states, the operation is family run and operated. Stanley’s wife Barbara is the company’s treasurer and their daughter Nina Engel is vice president and corporate secretary. Stawski credits his success to “hard work and perseverance.” Stawski Imports dealings with the state-run liquor monopolies of the Central European nations have given him product-knowledge and personal contacts to bring over the best and newest products.
