People are asking how and why we decided to revive story about Serbian traditional drink in the heart of the city?
Actually, it all started as a movie plot, with a dating couple sitting at a bar, and a casual question: “What do you love?” And a bit unusual answer: “Well, I love rakija…”
One emerging love revealed the other and caused the opening of the first bar dedicated to the Serbian traditional drink and the beginning of our own rakija production.
We are telling an old story, the story that everyone have already heard about, but in a different, new, modern – our own way. We are giving Rakija the oportunity to achieve well-deserved recognition, to be enthroned as the perfect alcoholic beverage.
Rakija is sophisticated „hard drink“. It is exclusively made of best quality fruits. It gives the feeling and sense of belonging to the nature, preserves the flavors that memories are made of.
For years, we have toured the whole world with rakija and we are still traveling. We have combined our traditional drink with some urban environments, new tastes and world hospitality trends.
We tasted and enjoyed the best world-class drinks. But, we are missing the taste of the begining – the taste of the city where the whole story started.
Finally, in the FIRST URBAN DISTILLERY in Belgrade, with all of our experience, with the heart full of love and the gratitude to the city of Belgrade, our neighborhood Dorćol and all dear people involved in journey, for being so inspiring, allowing our dream to flourish, we are sharing with you our products and the way we prepare them – here at Dorćol, in Žorža Klemansoa street.
