Tālava creates natural apple cider - component of an exciting and modern lifestyle.
Combining traditional cider fermentation methods, modern technologies and understanding of Latvian and world flavors, we strive for excellent quality and are not afraid to innovate.
Cider and drinks are made from several varieties of Latvian apples, where distinctly seasonal Northern climate forms unique apple character and gives a fresh and crispy notes.
We are Tālava - where the traditions, quality and the courage to innovate meet.
WHO WE ARE?
Cider makers and owners grew up here in Gulbene (historically Talava) and in year 2014 in parents' garage decided to create a cidery to produce authentic and high-quality drinks made from local fruits - specially selected and hand-picked apples, showing how diverse Latvian apples can be, but cider - enjoyable both everyday and on holidays!
