Tasting: Strykover Slivovitz 72%
Some time ago, fell into my hands unusual drink Slivovitz Strykowska 72%. This brandy is produced according to the eighteenth century recipe, stored in the archives of the Jewish community. It is the only brandy in the world that is certified Kosher for Pesach, which means the highest possible standard of ritual purity. To receive, production plant and production line had to go through a thorough modernization. All elements which flows brandy in the production process (vats, tanks, literally each tube and each container) have been replaced with new certified Kosher or have undergone a process koszerowania. The entire production line was approved by the ultra-orthodox in Israel rabiniczy court. For each element involved in the production is glued special kosher certificate. The entire production process takes place in one place, because, like distillation and bottling took place in other places, is a car designed to carry plum brandy would need to be kosher.
All components, each intermediate used in the production of this drink, has been thoroughly tested and approved by the court rabiniczy in terms of kashrut. The yeast used in the production process are imported from Antwerp.
The exact formulation is not known. The main components are the focus of plums, raisins and sugar. Set inoculated with a special yeast and allowed to ferment. At the end goes to the rectification column, that is, to distillation .
Slivovitz is a delicate straw color and is slightly oily, involved in the glass gently flows down from the walls. We can feel the distinct aromas of plums and pleasant, delicate scents fusel (in the end it has to taste like the one that was made centuries earlier). Slivovitz not drink the whole glasses, but the taste slowly. The first feeling is soft, crisp taste of plums and distillate . The longer flows to the stomach the more heats the whole body and mind.
Cedyk of Szydtowiec said that brandy was a gift from God
for the Jewish people, because it contains three elements:
* Brings joy, brings relief and comfort to consume;
* They offered it brings people together;
