Plum brandy, also called Sljivovica, is the most widely recognized type of Rakija. It’s the national drink of the Serbian people and had been recognized and awarded on numerous occasions. As a protected brand of Serbia, Rakija made of plum can only be labeled as Sljivovica if it has been directly imported from the motherland. This hard liquor is infused with tradition, century-old craftsmanship, and national pride.
A sip of Sljivovica is like tasting the entire history of the Balkan region. The reason why plum brandy from Serbia is incomparable to other knock-offs is simple. Original Sljivovica is made from a variety of plum that is grown only in the Balkans. This premium, organic variety yields a drink that is characterized by a gorgeous yellow color, strong aromatic smell, and a flavor that’s best described as caramel-like.
