Our story



The region in the heart of Europe, in the harsh conditions of the High Tatras, has preserved its traditional cultural values to this day. The territory of the two national parks, the most valuable natural treasures of Slovakia, is still guarded by gorals who have lived here since time immemorial. Their name comes from the Polish word “gury”, meaning “mountain”, and they have become an eternal symbol of the region. They excel in physical strength, spiritual purity and an eternal connection with nature.



Stará Ľubovňa, situated at the foot of the High Tatras in the heart of Europe, and on the territory inhabited by the Highlanders since time immemorial, belongs among the Slovak royal towns. The first indirect mention of this town dates back to 1235 and since then its unique 640-year-old distilling tradition has been written. Stará Ľubovňa lies on the border between Poland and Slovakia and has been influenced by both countries for centuries. For 360 years, the town was part of the Cracow Kingdom’s advance and thanks to this it preserved the culture and traditions of both countries, including the production of alcohol. Stará Ľubovňa thus became a leading centre of the crossroads of the trade routes of the time.
