Marko, the inventor
tradition in any workshop on the planet
Turning fruit into liquid gold
Behind a nondescript door in a quiet part of Serbia the most remarkable events unfold.
Marko, alchemist, inventor, engineer, is rethinking one of the most important processes in the Balkans, how to distill rakija (plum brandy). And he has succeeded, with a combination of old knowledge and new technology, in making a computer operated still (lampec), that uses 10% of the wood and water traditionally required, and makes up to 100% more rakija from a given amount of plums. Modern, efficient, green and better!
