Pelinkovac of Darna Ltd., also affectionately called the ‘Pelinovac of Rovinj’ ‘is distinguished by its quality, special rich, bitter taste and a strong fragrance characteristic of wormwood. Produced in accordance with traditional recipes passed down from the first owner of liqueur factory Giorgio Benussi, it is a proof of tradition inherent in the modern times.

Natural flavour is obtained by caramelization of sugar in special copper kettles, and what is particularly specific for this product is that it is left to mature in Slavonian oak barrels which gives it a special flavour and fragrance, making it more tended than the one produced industrially, due to a longer technological process.

The alcohol volume of Pelinkovac liqueur is 28 percent.
