This first class, home-made brandy has a long tradition in Slovenia. KILC Slivovitz is made from home-grown plums using a recipe passed down from generation to generation. Even our great-grandfathers knew that a shot of slivovitz aids digestion and stimulates both the body and the soul. A cup of hot herbal tea with a small amount of Slivovitz has therapeutic effects on the whole body and is often used to cure the flu during flu epidemics and to prevent colds.
