Travarica (herb-flavored brandy)
Locality: Popovo polje, Herzegovina
Natural brandy traditionally produced in Monastery Cellars. Travarica (herbal spirit) - a sophisticated spirit acclaimed as a superb digestive aid and tonic. It is quite simply an infusion of a variety of herbs in pure grape brandy. There are many recipes for travarica - some contain as few as 10 herbs, while others can contain 20 or more. Travarica often contains rosemary, chamomile, lavender, rose hips, matgrass, juniper, thyme, currants, mint or sage, but the list of possible additions is practically endless. We recommend serving it cold as an aperitif.
