London School Of Economics Bacchus Wine Society organized a Serbian Brandy Tasting Event. LSE Bacchus promotes Serbian culture, cuisine and spirit. They organize a trip to Serbia in June for their members. Tastebrandy supported the event and supplied the 6 types of brandy slivovitz. The Bacchanalians tasted:
This spring Bacchus is planning a trip to Serbia to enjoy the unique food and drink it has to offer. Serbia is one of the most arable lands in Europe and has a long history of winemaking. However you may not have ever tried them because only 5% of Serbian wine is exported, and rarely to Western Europe.
This is the Feedback in general that Bacchus sent to us:
“1. People were really impressed with quality – they loved all of them – but least favourite was the travarica (this is to be expected of course).
2. No burn! Really good quality
3. Couldn’t believe these were 40% alcohol. It was so smooth (dunjevaca and kruska) that they thought these were 20%. They couldn’t believe it when I told them they were 40%.
4. People really enjoyed it in general and we played some Boban Markovic and Goran Bregovic along with current pop stars – aka Severina.
