Tasting: Strykover Slivovitz 72%
Some time ago, I fell into my hands a remarkable liquor slivovtz 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 Passover, which is the highest possible standard of ritual purity. To receive, production facilities and the production line had to undergo a thorough modernization. All elements which plum brandy flows in the production process (vats, tanks, virtually every pipe and every container) have been replaced by new certified Kosher or have undergone a process koszerowania. The whole production line has been approved by the ultra-orthodox rabiniczy court in Israel. 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 slivovitz 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 prunes, raisins and sugar. Set is inoculated with special yeast and allowed to ferment. At the end moves to the rectification column, that is, to distillation.
Slivovitz has a delicate straw color and is slightly oily, involved in the glass gently flows down from the walls. We sense a clear and pleasant aromas of plums, delicate scents fusel (in the end it has to taste like the one that was made centuries earlier). Slivovitz not drink all glasses, but a taste slowly. The first feeling is mild, crisp taste of plums and distillate. The longer flows into the stomach the more heats the whole body and mind.
