If you’ve ever heard of Rakija before, you probably know about Plum brandy, also called Sljivovica. Hailing directly from Serbia, Sljivovica is declared as the national drink and has been rewarded and recognized by multiple food-related institutions. It is also a protected brand of Serbia and can only be labeled Sljivovica if it has been imported from the country of its origin. One word that best describes this drink is tradition, and while new techniques have been implemented, the creation process is the same as it was centuries ago. One variety of plum that is grown in the Balkans has shown to have the best attributes for creating this drink, hence why it is so popular in that part of the world. Plum brandy is characterized by a yellow color, almost caramel-like taste, and a very strong but aromatic smell. If you’ve never tried this sweet liquor, you might be caught off guard by how strong it is, but it is guaranteed that you will enjoy its aftertaste.
