Serbia is the world’s 5th largest producer of plums and as much as 70% of the total yield goes into distilling Šljivovica. This plum brandy is made from two native varieties. Healthy fruit is pushed to the point of extreme ripeness where they are about to fall off the tree on their own before being hand picked, mashed, and then spontaneously fermented. It’s then distilled once, distilled again at ~60% alcohol, and this second distillation is blended with demineralized water resulting in ~40% alcohol. There are no other additives.
