RENAISSANCE OF FRUIT BRANDIES
RETURN OF BRANDY TO ELITE SOCIETY
By studying medieval blooming of grape brandy production which was reffered to by many names: vine water, fire water and water of life we have achieved pristine quality for our products. Brandy was in the beginning produced by alchemists and apothecaries, because up to 15th century it was considered a medicine and was associated with supernatural powers of rejuvenation and extending the lifespan. Various wars and epidemics have contributed to production of brandy. From our written history there are records that claim ancient Slavs have produced mead and have in fact brought that habit with them to Balkan peninsula in 7th century.
Perković family is counted among the elite circle of small producers who with their brandies display real and noble nature of fruit brandies. Only brandies which bolster on enchanting essence of smell and fruit taste can return its original reputation and dignity.

Our products have exceptional quality, are handmade, contain no additives and as such preferred choice of every brandy and liqueur lover. Great attention is paid to packaging design with the goal of creating recognizable brand. In pursuit of this goal we have started cooperation with young design team “Hand design”.
