Preslav Rakia (Brandy)

You will often find this distinctive Rakia (Brandy) on the shelves of Bulgarian supermarkets, it comes in a 750 ml bottle and is usually a full bodied 42% alcohol by volume.

Preslav Rakia is claimed to be made from the finest grapes in Bulgaria under the the control of the famous Vinex Company. This particular Preslav Rakia is made from the finest quality grapes and aged in oak barrels for a period of no less than 7 years giving it its fine character and colour.

There is additional maturation that takes place in oak barrels beyond this that are used exclusively for this prestigious Rakia. This Rakia is now being exported to the U.S.A. market where no doubt it will rise in popularity -- and not just from Expatriate Bulgarians there!
