Drink up the spirit of the peninsula

More brands of rakiyas and other spirits, coming from more countries are thirsty for your taste buds on the the Second Balkan Rakiya Fest in Sofia.

Human ingenuity and fun coincidences have created some astonishing drinks, which are here to taste.

Among them are the Turkish aniseed drinks who have matured for at least three years, honey ouzo from Greece and Serbian honey-distilled apple rakiya.

A Bulgarian producer is presenting something really extraordinary. Ten years ago, the revenue agency sealed off a whole reservoir with distilled alcohol, as the producer has breached some procedures. He gained the right to open the reservoir only this year. The result is rakiya so astonishing in taste, that it is now named after the National Revenue Agency as a sign of gratitude.

Some of the other types of spirits you can taste at the Second Balkan Rakiya Fest are liquor with coca leaves made in Amsterdam, seven types of rakiya for each day of the week by a Bulgarian producer, Serbian rakiyas from blackberries and raspberries and traditional Italian liquor of young walnuts.

The festival continues to Sunday, 26 October, and is in Hall 6 of the National Palace of Culture, Sofia.
