Latvia is an apple land, where almost every house has several apple trees. In May and June, the aroma of apple blossoms takes over the gardens and entices bees to pollinate the flowers in order to first fruits could form. The diversity of varieties allows us to enjoy these delicious fruits in the garden from August to December. If fruits are harvested from the tree in fall and stored in a cool cellar, they can be eaten until spring. But if fruits are processed into delicious drinks, then they can be enjoyed all year round and even longer.
Apples are harvested in the Gauja National Park. At first is made apple wine, then it is distilled in order to gain the happy Ferryman’s name. This is the most popular choice for those who have just started to get to know craft fruit and berry distillates.
Life is like a river flowing fast, sometimes slower. Along the way, we meet lively rapids and bubbling deep whirlpools. No one can resist this mighty power of life – only the Ferryman, that works day by day, year by year and it is strong enough to take you to the happy shore of river.
Name of the drink is created inspired by the Līgatne ferry over the river Gauja.
There are available also other distillates from Ferryman (Pārcēlājs) series: pine cone, raspberry, beet and also in oak barrel aged apple brandy.
