A region in the heart of Europe, in savage conditions of High Tatras mountains, has kept its traditional cultural values until today. The territory of two national parks, the most precious natural treasures of Slovakia, is up till today guarder by gorals who live here within living memory. Their name comes from Polish word “gury” meaning “mountains” and it became an immortal symbol of this region. They excel in physical strength, spirit clarity and ancient connection with nature.
Stará Ľubovňa, adjacent to the piedmont of High Tatras in the heart of Europe, and lying on the territory inhabited by gorals since the ancient times, the town belongs among Slovak royal towns. The very first indirect mention of the town is from the year 1235 and since then, its unique 640 years old distilling tradition has been written. Stará Ľubovňa is situated on the Slovak borders with Poland and it has been influenced by both countries for the centuries. For long 360 years the town had been a part of the Kingdom of Krakow, thanks to which it has kept cultures and traditions of both countries, among which belong the alcohol production as well. By this, Stará Ľubovňa had become the foremost centre of crossroads of then trade routes.
