represents the continuation of gold slivovitz production in Vizovice. The idea of making gold slivovitz first came about as a result of the Jelínek brothers’ experience with brandy production, which they started in 1923 in collaboration with the French cognac maker Denis Mounié.
The 10 years it spends ageing in oak casks give it its gold colour, an aroma close to that of cognac, and a harmonious fruity flavour with a distinctive woody undertone.
Only the highest-quality hand-harvested plums are used for production. This is followed by the triple distillation of a ripe plum mash under the supervision of a representative of the Jewish Orthodox Union. The spirit is then aged for ten years under carefully controlled conditions, in a range of temperatures and with alternating exposure to air, which affects the resulting colour, flavour, and aroma. Its bottling is also supervised by a rabbi.
