Slivovitz becomes Serbia’s first brand
A minister has announced that slivovitz has become Serbia’s first official national brand.
According to Agriculture Minister Slobodan Milosavljević, Serbia received a certificate from the European Union for this plum brandy, with a protected brand name and geographic origin, to be called “Serbian Slivovitz.” “Only we will be able to export under that name,” Milosavljević told daily Večernje Novosti, adding that “no-one else in the world will be able to make and sell that brand of slivovitz.” He said that while slivovitz has always been a Serbian brand, the European Union certification had made it official.
