The favorable climate conditions in the area of the city of Troyan are a natural prerequisite for the development of arboriculture, mostly of plums. The Troyan plum is the main ingredient in the production of the famous Troyan plum rakia.
The Czech joint-stock company “RUDOLF JELÍNEK”, headquartered in Vizovice, is one of the largest producers of fruit distillates in Europe.
Traditions in the production of fruit distillates in Vizovice date back to 1585, while the company itself was founded in 1894 and it is mostly known today for its plum rakia, which has had enormous success not only in the Czech Republic, but across the world as well.
“VINPROM –TROYAN” is the historical successor of the rakia-production traditions in the region of Troyan. Founded in 1948 as a section of the State spirit monopoly, with its main field of activity being related to the production of Troyan plum rakia, as well as apple rakia, with the company also responsible for the trade of its products. In order to fulfill these goals, the company had several well equipped distilleries in different villages across the region and one trade storehouse in the city of Troyan itself.
“VINPROM - TROYAN” AD is the Bulgarian national leader in the production of natural fruit distillates and rakia.
The company purchases more than 5,000 tons of fruit every year, which are then processed under a special traditional technology that preserves the genuine flavor and fragrance of the Troyan Plum Rakia.
Plum distillates form over 90% of the company’s total production, which also includes products made from apricot, apple, pear and cherry distillate.
