Peaches have become already a traditional fruit for our country. There are large peach plantations near Sliven, where most of our supplies are. Smaller quantities come also from our region or village of Belovets and the village of Prof. Ishirkovo.
The main variety that we are looking for rakia includes Red heaven, Glow heaven and Halle peaches. We also take a small portion of nectarines. Since 2016, we have increased our peach distillate production to 20% of our annual capacity due to increased interest from our European partners. The excellent quality we maintain ensures a long-term relationship with our peaches producers and suppliers, which is very important for the both parties.
The technological path of processing and distillation is no different from the traditional way of producing apricot distillate. Peach is a more juicy fruit and quite often conducts more successful fermentation despite the lower sugar content.
