The Legendary Origins of The Nines

The dish, containing the powerful herbal infusion, would be left in the Midsummer’s night air and all of the next day. This ritual allowed the infusion to get as much of the sun’s strength, power and energy as possible. Our ancestors believed that on the shortest night of the year, herbs concentrate their strongest qualities.

 

Then, the priest would pour the bitter into a newly made hornbeam barrel and put it into an underground cellar. In the shadows of the cellar, the bitter would wait for three years, three months and three days. That is how one of the oldest bitter in Lithuania, and the whole of Europe, was created.
