Dark Forest
8YO
Grape Brandy

This dark and sumptuous delicacy represents the crown of our work.

 

Its fragrant and fruity aromas come from four distinct grape sorts grown in the sunbathed vineyards of Baranya, Slavonia: Riesling, Chardonnay, Traminer, and Gray Pinot. 8-year maturation in a Slavonian oak cask and a Bordeaux wine cask has yielded a rich and delectable treat that you’ll want to savor for a long time.

Our story

Brigljević Distillery is a boutique distillery from Croatia dedicated to crafting fine spirits since 2002. 

We’re artists on a quest for exceptional flavors and we proudly nurture an artisanal approach to spirit-making.

Our approach

We combine the best of Scottish, French, and Croatian production methods to create full-bodied spirits with distinctive aromas.

 

We utilize natural fermentation with ambient yeast only. After double distillation in traditional copper pot stills, all spirits mature in carefully selected casks.

Cask maturation is essential in developing the richness and complexity of our spirits. That is why we have built an elaborate maturation system with various casks, sourced from all around the world.

Our footprint

We source all raw ingredients from local fruit growers, winemakers, and brewers who share our sustainability principles, and supply us with the best of what nature can give.

 

Our distillery production footprint is naturally very low: our copper pot stills are powered by recycled wood chips, whereas all organic waste from distillation is repurposed as compost for our garden.
