A collection of slivovitz bottles.
 

Slivovitz comes.  Slivovitz goes.  Distillers quit distilling.  Importers stop importing. Sometimes the Feds embargo the entire shipment for obscure reasons.  Distributors don't distribute.  We maintain the Library to help train new judges understand what we mean when we say that it 'had a bite like the old Brand X', because we bought the last available bottles before the Feds cleared them from the shelf.

Being a Slivovitz Judge requires an excellent memory.  A Master Slivovitz Judge can identify a plum brandy years after trying it once, and can do all kinds of slivoninja tricks.  It takes years of dedicated sipping to turn an ISTA  JourneyJudge into a Master Slivovitz Judge.  To help, we maintain a comprehensive library of brands and styles of slivovitz at our headquarters, and another duplicate library at a secure facility near Duluth, Minnesota. 

We have made it our mission to assemble the world's most complete collection of Slivovitz.  If you know of a brand that isn't represented in the library, let us know.  (we've done some of the sorting for you...)

Here's the alphabetical listing of every brand that we've tried or know about.  If a brand isn't here, drop me an email.  I'm Bill, and my email comes to me at slivovitz.us. 

NOTICE: Serbian Slivovitz Alert!  According to the Serbian Ministry of Agriculture, almost half of all Serbian Slivovitz tested is not made from plums.  Serbian Slivovitz is made from corn or molasses with artificial colors and flavoring added.

If you've got slivovitz in your family history, you can guess why we're doing this.  For the rest of you...  Whether it's called plum brandy, Slivovitz, mirabelle, or quetsch, for generations slivovitz has toasted births, weddings, successes and failures.  It's how families greet returning members, celebrate victories, mourn defeat, and honor memories of our lost ones.  It's a part of our heritage, part of our bloodlines, part of who we are, and a reminder of where we come from.  Sipped, slammed, savored, or shot - Slivovitz will change your outlook on life just as it has for millions of fans for hundreds of years.  Na zdravlje!
 
The Slivovitz Festival was created by the Brothers Radosevich, and has grown with the assistance of fellow slivophiles into the premier Slivovitz Tasting event in the world.  We offer the most brands, the widest variety, the largest number of contries, and the most experienced judges to help you find a slivovitz that matches your taste.  Come by the Festival, and celebrate with us.
