Herb brandy

The oldest and best known brandy of southern Croatia. There was hardly a tavern that did not produce some sort of brandy with different medicinal herbs or made from different bases. Herb brandy owes its long tradition primarily to the medicinal properties ascribed to it, so when brandy is mentioned in the context of a medicinal beverage, it is herb brandy that most often comes to mind. Throughout history pharmacists have recommended it for treating different ailments and medical conditions, either as a beverage, compress or for massage. Perković herb brandy is made from ten different indigenous Dalmatian medicinal plants, the highest content of which include: sage (salvia oficinalis), fennel (foeniculum vulgare), centaury (erythraea centaurium), cantarion (hypericum perforatum), wormwood (Artemisia apsinthium), and valerian (valeriana officinalis). Medicinal plans are macerated in quality cider giving Perković herb brandy extraordinary taste. The specific taste, oil-yellow color and the medicinal herbs added by hand make our herb brandy, sold in a decorative half-liter bottle, the most successful and best-selling product of MDM Perković.

Carob

Carob has been grown in the Mediterranean for 4,000 years for its pods, which, when dried, make an interesting, tasty chocolate substitute. Because of its natural sweetness, carob can also be a substitute for cocoa and cocoa products. Throughout history singers have chewed the edible pod and beans of the carob plant, believing it to cleanse the throat and voice. Due to its high tannin content, carob is often used to treat severe indigestion. We obtain the carob pods used to make carob brandy, popularly knowr as Rogatica, on the island of Vis, one of our sunniest islands. All the benefits of its aroma are derived by months of maceration, or the immersion of carob pods in highest quality cider, giving our brandy its recognizable clear brown color. We are proud that immersion preserves the healing powers of carob fo indigestion. This is why we recommend Rogatica as a digestive. Carob was most likely the food that St. John the Baptist consumed in Biblical times, which is why it is sometimes referred to as "St_ John's bread." In antiquity, carob beans were used as a measurement unit for weighing gold, one bean one carat (keration, Greek for carob bean), because regardless of the size of the bean and storing conditions, carob beans always have the same weight - 0.18 Carat is still used today as measurement for 0.18 grams of gold and diamonds.

Fig brandy

Although the fig is a Mediterranean tree, it also grows in similar climates elsewhere in the world, like Australia, South America and California. Our coast is abundant with fig trees, and since the fruit spoils quickly once it is picked from the tree, figs are usually dried immediately or processed into jam. It is known as one of the first plants cultivated as a human staple food, dating from the times of the Sumerians, Egyptians and Greeks_ It is also mentioned in different chronicles, literary and poetic texts. The magical, sweet flavorof the fig inspired the first artistic works in ancient civilizations There are carved depictions of fig harvesting dating from 4,000 B.C. Information on nine fossilized fig trees found in the valley of the River Jordan were published, dating them to between 9,400 and 9,200 B.C. Apart from its high nutritional value, the fig is also a strong antioxidant, stronger even than black tea. Dried figs are rich in vitamins C and E and beta-carotene. The fruit has high nutritional and dieto-therapeutic value and contains more dietary fibers than any other fruit. Its main ingredient is dextrose, but it also contains polyphenol antioxidants. According to research of the university of Scranton in the united States, dried figs have greater concentration of phenols, which act as antioxidants. The fig is also rich in potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus, and they contain Omega-3 and Omega-G fatty acids, which lower blood cholesterol and the proteolithic enzyme that aids digestion. We have prepared this sublimate of health and flavor in the form of the finest brandy. Perković fig brandy can boast of being special since it is one of only a handful of brandies obtained by distiling pure fig, without the addition of other fruits. Production is very time consuming and demanding. After harvesting, figs are dried in the sun in the old-fahioned way and aromatic plants are added. After drying, the larger, first-class figs are separated, packed into 300 gram bags, and marketed as Perković dried figs. Smaller figs are soaked in water, ground down and the mass obtained is subjected to controlled fermentation. Fermentation takes place with selected yeasts and the regulation of acidity, which is essential for obtaining the best quality fig brandy. Fermentation is followed by fine distillation; the brandy then allowed to lie at least six months. The brandys golden color is obtained by subsequent maceration - one fig per one liter of brandy.

Wealthier peasants had their own pecare, or facilities for brandy production, which they lent to those lacking for a fee. In the past, šljivovica was considered indispensable for the performance of everyday work, like plowing, sowing, harvesting, hay gathering, as well as on occasions like weddings, funerals or christenings; there were those who consumed it on a daily basis. We make our Šljivovica as a traditional quality product obtained with the help of modern technology, and the best yeasts.

Maraschino

The first alcoholic herbal liqueur rosolo, the predecessor of maraschino, emerged from the darkness of the Middle Ages and quest of alchemists to find an elixir of life. In the early 16th century, Dominicans in Zadar produced a liqueur from marasca sour cherry in their pharmacy and laboratory. Its enthusiastic reception led to the opening of a number of shops for the production of this liqueur. At that time, a certain Calcenigo of Bergamo, Italy produced a somewhat altered first maraschino on the basis of the recipe of the Zadar Dominicans. The high reputation of this excellent liqueur spread all the way to Venice, where it became immensely popular. In the 19th century, the Zadar liqueur industry underwent significant development and new manufacturers emerged, the most significant of which were Giuseppe Sabalich, Mateo Magazzini and Girolamo Luxardo. Most of the manufacturers were immigrants attracted by cheap labor, favorable prices, and good profits because in addition to the special quality of the Dalmatian soil and the almost ideal climate, very high-quality raw material was inexpensive. The Zadar manufacturers also produced other liqueurs, like cherry liqueur, wormwood liqueur, labbro rubino and curacao, but maraschino, which became known throughout the world, was produced in the largest quantities. It was exported to almost every country in the world and was especially prized in Vienna, Paris, London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Nuremburg, Petrograd, Naples, Genoa, Milan, Istanbul and cities in Switzerland, France, and Belgium. It was later exported to the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia and other countries. Maraschino was enjoyed by many famous crowned heads, such Queen Victoria, the Russian Czar Nicholas I, the French King Louis XVIII and others. There is also mention of deliveries to Napoleon's court in Paris and to Marshal Ma rmont in Ljubljana. The King of England George IV allegedly sent the warships Aigle and Contessa Landerdale, at the time based in Corfu and Malta, to Zadar to pick up one hundred cases of maraschino. When visiting Zadar in 1887, a later King of England, George V, took a tour of one of the maraschino factories and purchased a large quantity of the beverage. The following excerpt by Professor Frane Baras describes the popularity of this Dalmatian elixir: "In the past, maraschino was a privileged drink intended only for the wealthiest people. It was consumed in royal and tsarist courts, accompanied warlords in military campaigns, admirals in naval battles and was discretely served in aristocratic and bourgeois palaces. It was in particular the irreplaceable companion of suave lovers. Casanova praises it in his Memoirs and it is mentioned by Balzac in his novel Journey into Life." Since maraschino was exported to England and the USA, it is no wonder that Zadar maraschino was also served on the Titanic on its fatal voyage, when it hit an iceberg and sank on April is, 1912. Perković maraschino Perković maraschino is made from an original recipe with the marasca sour cherry grown in the Zadar region. It differs from the original maraschino because cider is used as the alcohol base, which helps to provide a fuller, special taste of this excellent liqueur. By mixing these distillates, we have consolidated the unique world of tastes and flavors of central Dalmatia and continental Croatia. This procedure is quite new in the history of maraschino production, which is why we molded the name of the liqueur into its Croatian variant - maraskino. The flavor of our liqueur is richer, the new technology is based on homemade fruit brandies and it represents an entirely new way of producing this liqueur. Enjoy the unparalleled taste of Perković maraschino.
