We went on this trip to getting to know our supplier of fruit spirits more closely. Once again, we were cruising through the beautiful Vysocina, nearing the village of Bohdaneč located by Ledec nad Sazavou. We were absolutely taken back by the newly planted fruit orchards all around, but if you produce fruit ciders and make excellent fruit spirits, it only confirms the integrity of your approach. The Agnes Zelená Bohdaneč plant is right by a beautiful lake, everything being absolutely clean – it is lovely when prosperity is connected to responsibility, something that I could feel everywhere here. Since you cannot miss the huge watchtower upon entering Bohdaneč, we decided with the kids that we will definitely go and conquer it. ‘Bohdanka’, as the locals call it, is at the height of 52,2m the second highest construction of its kind in Europe. The lookout platform is in the height of 42m. As we were ascending the tower, we counted 217 stairs! All around us, we were surrounded by an almost divine panorama, marked by sheep herds, forests, fish ponds etc. Zelená Bohdaneč is also the largest beekeeper central in the Czech Republic. In the production plant of Agnes, we bought amazing homemade scoop ice cream, as well as homemade bread from the local bakery. And lets not forget the reason we came for, the fruit ciders! The team at Bohdaneč isn’t afraid of experimenting, so other than the typical apple and pear ciders, they also sell ginger, celery or carrot ciders. And they all really taste fantastic! Even my conservative children that usually have to be forced to try new things were more than willing and enjoying the experience, it just came naturally. On top of all this, we immediately decided to include these 100% natural products into our detox programs. We highly recommend visiting!
