One smooth, aromatic, and flavorful Spirit.
You might think that Rakia (pronounced ra-kee-ya) is just another Brandy. But it’s so much more than that. Originating in the heart of the former Yugoslavia, this old traditional Spirit carries with it age-old stories of its own rituals and particularities that are still mostly unknown to the rest of the world. Južni Vetar Rakija introduces you to the world of these time-honored Spirits that are made with 100% natural, local ingredients and fresh spring water before they’re aged for a long time in the finest oak barrels. Fusing traditional values with modern technology, Južni Vetar brings you the unique and proud flavors of the Balkan region. The past meets the future.
Made from ripe plums from the mountains near Bijeljina in Bosnia, Južni Vetar 20 Year Old Šljiva Barrique XO Rakia is aged in the traditional “Quercus petraea” oak barrels for 20 years. This traditional premium Spirit greets you with gentle floral aromas that lead into the slightly spicy palate with citrus, plum, vanilla, and baking fruit notes. It weighs in at a respectable 40%ABV, which is perfect for the light body to shine in all its glory. Sip it neat with friends and toast to life Rakia-way!
