Top quality brandy produced from Serbian plums by application of a special technological treatment. Selected ripe plums are crushed and the pits are separated away. After temperature controlled fermentation based on regional yeast, the fermented mash is double distilled and blended until a distinctive fresh slivovitz is obtained. The slivovitz is then placed in oak barrels of up to 5000 liters for aromatic completion and then stored in stainless steel tanks for further aging until bottling.
The unique taste of Slivovitz comes from the plum seeds. When pressed, the seeds release amygdalin, which tastes of almonds. When sipped, the brandy's fiery start mellows, leading to a smooth clean finish.
