Quince is a very aromatic fruit used for the production of brandy of an extraordinary flavour, as well as highly respected fruit since it is not grown extensively thus the production of this brandy is a real challenge. Quince is considered to be a symbol of love, fertility and beauty, and in antic legends it is mentioned as a fruit which the Gods used to tell fortune.
Our quince brandy called “Nostalgija” is produced from ripe, sweet and aromatic fruits. One litre of brandy is produced from 16 kg of this fruit. Quince has a low content of sugar and it should be left on a tree as long as possible until it is fully ripe, or even mildly ripe.
Selected and sufficiently ripe fruits with a higher content of sugar are used in the production process. Fruit chops are further chopped by a mill and as such, with the addition of yeast strain selection enter the process of the controlled fermentation. The distillation process starts immediately after fermentation to preserve the natural flavour. The obtained distillate is even by 70% strong and it is gradually brought to the desired strength of 40 vol.%.
