Making a RAKIJA brew with Branko Opacic
Branko Opacic my neighbor and friend, and my visiting artists went to see how is made Rakija.
Rakia (also Rakija or Rachiu) is an alcoholic beverage that is produced by distillation of fermented fruit; it is a popular beverage throughout the Balkans. Its alcohol content is normally 40% ABV, but home-produced rakia can be stronger (typically 50% to 60%). Rakia is prevalently accepted and considered to be а national drink of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia,Montenegro and Serbia.
