About the company
The name Nestville Distillery was established by combining the words NEST and VILLE, while the "NEST" literally means a nest and "VILLE" stands for the English word "VILLAGE", which in a full translation is the name of the village called Hniezdne. This picturesque village is located only 5 km east of Stara Lubovna and the first written record dates back to 1286.
The Nestville Distillery continues in the production of high-quality spirits, following old traditions going back three centuries. The company decided to renew this legacy in its spirits production that will be largely reminiscent of the tradition, history and skills of the people living in the region.
Not long ago in the Upper Spis region, very important historical documents and artefacts documenting an important period of life in this region were discovered. The archive documents show that the oldest preserved Slovakian distillery from the latter half of the 18th century is situated in Stara Lubovna.
Further references to the distillery are given in the description of the Lubovna castle in the Hungarian-Austrian geographical dictionary from 1851. The base of the old distillery still stands below the castle. It is apparently the oldest preserved building of its kind in Slovakia! Clear evidence preserved from the 18th century documents that distilling is a centuries-old tradition in the region.
