Among brandy lovers slivovitz enjoys its special admiration. It is one of the most appreciated at least in this parts of the World. And the best one to find in Slovenia is the Brkinski slivovec or Brkini slivovitz.
It has the mark of geographical origin and for this it has to be prepared in the traditional way. The secret lies in a special Brkini cauldron distillation, which has to be done only once.
Hills of Brkini home to numerous plum plantations are located in south-west of the country, not so far from the Adriatic coast.
They are quite sunny and warm, not crowded and offer some great farm stays with a few cultural sites to explore (like Prem castle) or you can enjoy in outdoor activities, like hiking, cycling and even swimming in the summer.
After writing a blog in Slovenian language for 10 years I have finally come to my sense and started writing one in English as well.
