Skerlic Distillery

Skerlic Distillery

A small family distillery of supreme brandy, this is the shortest definition of the Skerlic Cellar. Situated in Toplica, central part of central Serbian region of Sumadija, known for its mild hills and favourable climate, Sumadija is also known for its famous brandy Slivovitz. The climate choses the types of fruit that is grown here, resistant to the drughts in July and August, that shapes the aroma of its brandies. The Skerlics make brandy of the fruit from their own orchards, controlling the fruit while it is still on the trees. Their orchards are made up of several acres of slopes and all family members are included in the business. Head of the family, is in charge of the most important activity: aging of the brandy in the family cellar. „We make brandy that spreads heat all over your body when you drink it“, he says.
