Allow us to invite you to a meeting with the pine, which originated in Trenčín, the city where this legendary drink has been produced for more than a hundred years.
We will disclose and explain to you that, - there would be no pine tree if there were no junipers. There wouldn't be a pine tree if it wasn't for Ján Ámos Comenský. There would be no pine tree if there were no pine trees. Borovicka would probably be without Trenčín, but certainly different.
