Distilling an old tradition into a new drink
ZIMA / Evrosad
The story of ZIMA dates back to 1965, when Emil’s granddad bought an orchard in Eastern Slovenia, once belonging to a Yugoslavian fruit cooperative. While he made a living with fresh fruits, every winter he would take the time to produce something far more delicate – a spirit made from finest Williams pears, viljamovka. We rediscovered the spirit in 2016 and joined forces with Evrosad to create one of the finest traditional Slovenian drinks. ZIMA (Slovenian for winter) is inspired by local tradition and designed with a vision of global market success.
