3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Selected ripe plums are crushed and the pits are separated away. After temperature controlled fermentation based on regional yeasts, the fermented mash is double distilled and blended until 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 ageing until bottling. Three years of oak aging gives the brandy a golden color and smoother taste; fresh, vigorous, vibrant.

Tasting notes
The unique taste of Slivovitz comes from the plum seeds. When pressed, the seeds release amygdalin which tastes of almonds. On the palate it tastes of vanilla and almond. As you sip it, notice how the brandy’s fiery start mellows leading to a smooth clean finish. Traditionally, Bistra Slivovitz is sipped neat just like a cognac or any other fine brandy and is mature enough to be drinkable with ease, particularly when slightly chilled.
