AUTHENTIC ISTRIAN LIQUORS SINCE 1925

To achieve superior quality, bitter liqueurs ripen in oak barrels that give them a distinctive scent and aroma.
They are excellent digesters. Cream liqueurs are unique in Croatia and beyond. They are made from whole ingredients (fresh yolks, milk, sugar and cocoa).
