Project “Ābolis” began as a romantic idea to trade in a desk job for a product production job. A step toward this idea was made in 2015 by moving from Riga to the Barbele parish. That’s when apple juice production started. Apples get sorted by their variety and then sweet apples are blended with sweet-and-sour apples, sour apples are blended with wild apples in order to achieve a full-bodied and sweet tasting juice. Even kids love to drink it. Juices are enriched with different flavors by boiling them with black currant branches and banana peppermint. Excellent hot drinks can be created by heating juices with chili peppers from the Zemgale region and ginger – they help to boost the immune system whether it’s autumn, winter or early spring. We’ve added apple vinegar and fake bee pollen with powdered apple to our assortment – a snack made with powdered dried apples, dates and raisins.
