The production of Troyan plum rakia has traditions that date back centuries, originating behind the walls of the Troyan monastery. In the decades that followed, the secret recipe and technology managed to spread from behind the walls of the monastery across the whole region of Troyan. With great care and respect towards the past, “VINPROM TROYAN” has kept and developed these long-held traditions up to today. The firm offers a wide range of plum rakia products which differ in both character and the time for which they have aged in oak barrels. The natural fruit distillates of “VINPROM TROYAN” are made from the finest and freshest of fruit of the highest quality. The harvesting of the fruits is carried out during their technological ripeness and their processing begins as soon as theyare delivered at the distillery. The produce is then milled after it has had its pits removed. Following a process of controlled fermentation the fruit mash goes through a specialized distillation column with the distillation process remaining uninterrupted. It is because of this practice that the distillate retains the fragrance and flavor of the plums it was made from. The supplementary qualities of the plum rakia are further enhanced through aging in oak barrels. Each stage of the production process is carefully monitored by our master distillers who make sure that the final product meets all quality requirements. It is due to this careful development process that each bottle gets its unique flavor, fragrance and color.
