You have probably heard many stories about brandy, and yet, you should read ours. It bears witness to what happens when love, knowledge and dedication meet tradition and innovation. We work carefully on every process of producing each bottle of STARA RAKIJA. Passion and dedication – for everything we do, from our hearts, with care and devotion.
CLIMATEAltitude, high precipitation and a large number of sunny days per year have caused Zlatibor to have lush vegetation and therefore ideal conditions for excellent and high quality plum yields.
LANDThe main support for organic production is nitrogen, as the main carrier of yield, obtained from manure, peat, sawdust, compost, etc.
ORGANIC PLANTATIONOrganic plant production methods contribute to the minimal pollution of the environment, the promotion and maintenance of soil fertility and the preservation of biodiversity.
CALDRONSIn order to get quality brandy, a good caldron is needed. Our caldrons are domestic, Serbian, made of copper, forged according to the tradition of the best old masters, where all the values of the climate and the past generations are included.
HONEYThe most widely spread ecosystem in Zlatibor are ponds and meadows, which grow about 120 species of different plants, many of which have medicinal properties, which are paradise for obtaining the best mead, clean and high-quality honey.
AGINGThe quality of the barrels in which brandy is served is a very important factor in obtaining the quality of brandy and its aromas. The barrels of Stara Rakija are of the sessile oak or downy oak species. The oak from which it is made naturally dries up to 7 years, then it is processed, after which the barrel is made.
Stara Rakija was created in a beautiful landscape below Zlatibor, and its charm soon won the world. The richness of its flavors is a special confirmation that tradition and quality ideally coincide with innovation and style. The old honey brandy is really made of honey, the quince brandy is made of quince… and so it can be repeated indefinitely, for every taste.
