Peninuki ciders
At Peninuki we believe that brewing and making ciders and drinks has to be true to its core. We value true and soulful craftsmanship. We like it how the soil here bears fruit and how the seasons change. It feels right to use the natural harvest – there is no need to add much. Just to point to the direction you want to go in and to praise the process. A song or a spell won’t hurt.
In this way you don’t lose track of the crop itself. There is no need to add additives to boost taste, longevity, or spark – the nature will take care of everything. Peninuki ciders are produced from 100% local cold-pressed juice using the oldest method in the world. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and not carbonated.

Moe Pepper Vodka and Handsa
Moe Fine Spirit Distillery returns passion and integrity to the art of making vodka. We are rediscovering the secrets of the trade that are in the single grain and its strength of character. Together with farmers we are proudly carrying on the versatile and proud traditions of vodka production in Estonia. All this takes place in the second oldest distillery in the world, Moe Fine Spirit Distillery, that was established in 1688 at the time of the Swedish king Charles XI. At Intsikurmu you can try the Pepper Vodka, Handsa, and Gin from the Moe Fine Spirit Distillery.
