Slivovitz production has a long tradition. Since the 19th century Vizovice in n has been its centre. In the RUDOLF JELÍNEK company, however, we not only maintain the tradition, but thanks to our experience also contribute to its development. We have expanded our offer of classic white slivovitz by adding a gold slivovitz matured in oak barrels. By this the slivovitz acquires a golden colour along with a unique aroma and flavour. For the more discerning among you, we have prepared several special varieties of distillates, such as jubilee vintage slivovitz, non-traditional distillates and limited edition Vizovice slivovitz, prepared exclusively with local plums from our own orchards.

Well known lesser known fruits in unusual form
In Vizovice we prepare for you, not only traditional slivovitz and other traditional fruit distillates such as apple brandy and apricot brandy, but also a number of less common spirits that are still made using typical Czech raw materials, whether fruit or beer. Vizovice in Wallachia has a famous tradition of distillate production, which began in the 16th century and therefore it is not surprising that during such a long time period, local master distillers experimented with the distillation of many other fruits. This resulted in a series of 14 non-traditional spirits that are made from forest fruits, beer, and other specialties such as red rowanberries and quince. The uncommoness of certain raw materials means that distillates are only available in very limited quantities and tasting is truly a unique experience.
In our line of non-traditional spirits, you can find: yellow plums, sour cherries, blueberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, red rowanberries, rowanberries, blackberries, quinces, strawberries, beer, Moravian jadernička apples, wild sloes and sea buckthorn.
