@Gvarda of course it would be the best for him to have homemade rakija, but you can’t find homemade vodka or moonshine in our region can you? He simply doesn’t have access to the “good stuff”, he mentioned it several times on this topic. Anyways is Badel notorious for something in Croatia? I drunk their pelinkovac and it was ok, although Gorki List is better for me. I don’t drink brandy/cognac/vinjak so I don’t know about that, but my friends like that from Badel.
