According to the drink producer, Manastirka slivovitz is made of the sort of plum called Pozegaca from Western Serbia region. Pozegaca is probably the most aromatic plum in the world. After fermentation Manastirka is distilled and distilled again in order to decrease alcoholic content of good slivovitz and gain more proficient taste.
This is probably the most famous brands of all plum brandies. Not because of its highest quality, but due to the fact that Yugoslavia started exporting it in 1960s and over 55 millions of litres were exported in USA, Europe, Australia and worldwide.
