About Martesi Rakija Malvasia

Istrian Malvasia belongs to the semi-aromatic varieties, making it ideal for the production of elegant pomace brandies. The synergy between acacia and Malvasia maintains a tradition from the past when acacia barrels were much more prevalent. Pressing Malvasia is a challenging task, given its dense pomace, which brings a special delight to us, distillers. There's a beautiful moment in the evening after the harvest when everything is slowly tidied up for the next day, and the sun has already set. Coming to the winemaker and catching a whiff of freshly pressed, juicy Malvasia takes us back to spring when the scents are in full bloom.

Interestingly, those unfamiliar with the world of grape pomace spirits quickly recognize the distinctive aroma of Muscat, but true aficionados always return to our "classic."

This is the first brandy in Istria that has aged in acacia wood, a source of pride for us, symbolizing the successful fusion of two Istrian icons. Experience the harmonious blend of tradition and innovation in every drop – a true Istrian masterpiece.
