Pine cone distillate Ferryman 40%
Both small and large pine trees have cones. But in order to harvest them more successfully and not have to climb high, it is recommended to choose smaller pines. In spring, along with other plants, pines with purple young cones also “bloom”. The best time for harvest is until Midsummer, when they are still soft and green.
Pine cones are harvested in the Gauja National Park. At first is made pine cone wine, then it is distilled in order to gain the happy Ferryman’s name. We recommend cone distillate for those who like refreshing, unusual tastes. It is a great opportunity to taste the real power of nature. Take a deep breath and the journey can begin!
From pine cones we also produce pine cone jam.
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: apple, raspberry, beet and also in oak barrel aged apple brandy.
