Aura Proizvodi: Delicacies from Croatia
The top brand of this family enterprise has been widely recognised. A great deal of work and devotion is invested into every product, according to the motto: â€œTested by hand, prepared with dedication.â€ Aside from jams made of figs, plums, dandelion, cornel cherries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, they produce fine brandies that are filtered up to six times to remove the sediment. The basis of all the spirits is homemade brandy from pomace, pears or apples. This is used for Biska (mistletoe brandy), Medenica (honey brandy) and Teranino (red wine liqueur), spirits made of figs, rosehip, carob, cornel cherries, almonds, olives, peppermint, plums, rose blossom, sage, forest fruits, wild apples, wild pears and even more besides. The product range also includes a herb brandy, Medimela (honey and mistletoe leaves in an apple distillate), a herb liqueur with wormwood, Millefrutti (made of macerated wild fruits, distilled twice and matured for three years in the barrique), Biska extra (made of white mistletoe) and Karbun gin (made of wheat distillate, juniper berries and 20 spices). The gin is filtered through active carbon that is also offered when serving. The products are available at wine shops, delicatessens, hotels, restaurants and airports. They have their own shops in Hum, the smallest town in the world, in Buzet, the town of truffles, in Novigrad, in GroÅ¾njanu, the artistsâ€™ village, in PoreÄ, Motovun and Rovinj. They also supply to Rijeka, Split and Vrbnik on the island of Krk.
