Once upon a time, back in the 16th century, there was a place Pogost - the possession of the Olelkovich family in the Slutsk land. Then the farm was owned by the Radziwills, and by the middle of the 19th century - Wittgenstein. It was during the latter that the estate was built, stone mill and distillery.

There is almost nothing left of the noble estate itself, it is even difficult to find the place where it stood. Only a few buildings of the former distilleries.

The main building, the factory itself, dates from 1901 year, as reported by the numbers on the pediment. It is made of brick and is quite typical.
