Brandy Distilling in Slovenia
Brandy distilling is a traditional occupation in Slovenia; it has not changed very much during the years and has been passed from one generation to the other. Almost every farm used to have a home distillery. The best time for distilling was autumn. Many stories and anecdotes were born during distilling, this was a time for socializing, joy, and fun on farms in autumns. Children loved to sit around the kettle and listen to the stories, told by the elders. Diverse sorts of brandy were created and are still created today in diverse parts of our country.
Alas, brandy still has a negative connotation in our land, since excessive brandy consumption brings no good. People are not enough aware of drinking culture and have practically no learning on spirits. Knowledge about drinking culture would add to the reduction of alcohol abuse.
Slovenia has high-quality spirits, which are not enough known and highlighted. Brandy in moderate quantities can also have preventive, positive impacts on cold, gastric disorders, and other problems.
Giving spirits as presents has really spread in the recent years – gift programme based on brandies in elegant home made packaging represents a first-class gift for diverse occasions.
