Where it all began
An idea conjured up through a collaboration between an English lady, passionate about Bulgaria and a Bulgarian visionary.
A World of Opportunities
Bulgaria is blessed with spectacular nature, where berries, and fruits, and herbs, and nuts, and vegetables, and all manner of crops grow in abundance.
Famous as a Christmas Liqueur in England, Rustic Reserve sloe gin is hand-crafted in Bulgaria by steeping wild Bulgarian sloes in slightly sweetened gin for three months, from picking in September until early December, when the resultant liqueur is decanted into bottles and served as a ‘digestif’ at Christmas. Leftovers, if any, are served throughout the year in cocktails or simply taken as a long drink with tonic water and ice.
Fashionable for cocktails or for sipping in England and the USA, fruit gins are hugely popular, especially with the young. Rustic Reserve cornel gin is hand-crafted in Bulgaria by steeping Bulgarian cornels in slightly sweetened gin for three months, from picking in September until early December, when the resultant liqueur is decanted into bottles and used in winter as a ‘digestif’ and all year long for cocktails.
