Tallinn is a charming blend of medieval tranquillity and modern urban life.

The evening offers an optional medieval dinner at Restaurant Maikrahv and, of course, intensive bar crawl and night life exploration.

As it turned out, Estonians in the Middle Ages had no wine, obviously because the country is northern, grapes were never grown. However, there were a variety of fruit and berry tinctures, cider, and, of course, Estonian beer.

The legendary drink is Vana Tallinn liqueur (Old Tallinn). It means as much for locals as Bekherovka in Czech Republic.

You can also hear in stories about this famous liqueur that in the USSR with the help of this magic bottle it was possible to solve all the problems if you handed it over as a gift to the right person who could "help" .

Or, what about champagne with Rabarbra? As grapes - surprise - still does not grow, local producers have experiments with gifts of northern nature. If you like something stonger, try Aromatic Flower Gin, which, due to the natural pigment extract from rosehips petals, has a golden hue. However, it is worth mixing gin with tonic - and it will become pink. The beverage contains 12 fragrant spicy herbs which have been distilled using the pot still method/in a copper pot. The sweet floral shade balances the patience of orange peel, juniper berries and yuzu, giving the drink a rounded, juicy, slightly tolerant taste. And there is more to explore!
