Nestled in the heart of Latvia's sprawling countryside, Herbsts Cidery stands as a testament to the untamed beauty of nature and the rugged determination of one family. I am Raimonds, and this is our story—a tale of wild orchards, the Baltic breeze, and the pursuit of crafting ciders that echo the essence of this land.
Our orchard, a weathered canvas painted with the brushstrokes of time, boasts more than six decades of existence. Nature, in its raw splendor, has taken charge, allowing oaks to weave through our apple trees and deer to graze freely, untouched by the disturbances of the modern world. It is in this wild symphony that our cider finds its unique melody.
At Herbsts, we don't just make cider; we craft stories in every bottle. The apples we handpick from our ancient orchard and the wild ones we forage in the untouched wilderness come together in a dance of flavors that captures the very spirit of the Baltic region. It's a taste born from the chaos of the wild, a taste that whispers tales of the untamed landscapes we call home.
But our commitment goes beyond the liquid in the bottle. We are a family-driven cidery with a deep sense of community. By providing employment opportunities to our local neighbors, we weave a tapestry of shared responsibility towards our environment. It's not just about the cider; it's about nurturing the roots that run deep in our local soil.
In the spirit of Hemingway's love for simplicity, we believe in letting nature guide us. We embrace the coincidences that unfold, finding beauty in the unpredictability of our craft. The result is not just a cider; it's a journey through the rugged terrain of the Baltic soul.
So, join us in raising a glass to the wild, to the untamed orchards, and to the unique taste of the Baltic. Herbsts Cidery is an invitation to savor the authenticity of our land, one sip at a time. Cheers to the wildness, the good taste, and the uncharted paths that lie ahead.
