As the owner and director, Mišel Sirotić, says, this is a proof that long lasting hard work always pays off.
Gin Karbun is interesting because it goes in a filtration process through an activated carbon, which additionaly purifies the distillate. That´s why it is named Karbun, and it is served with a piece of activated carbon, which you get with the bottle.
The main ingredient – blueberries – are harvested on a nearby mountain Ćićarija. That´s where the other wild herbs and fruits are being harvested for Aura liquers and brandies.
