Festival of spirits


The making of the spirits

The first kettles were simple and rudimentary, and were placed in the yard of the owner. The slow functioning of these kettles used to prolong the making of the spirits until late spring.
Until 1900, a number of 30 simple kettles were functioning in this area, but in the german ocupation period their number decreased by half. Some people started to build kettles on the river banks, for the speeding of the cooling process.
This process of making spirits gave birth to the festival of spirits, a great occasion to keep the traditions, but also is a festival of joy where thousands of people can taste the best spirits from the country, 100% natural.

We invite you at our festival of spirits to party with us. We are happy to have guests!
