    Rakija is not wine. It is same like Schnapps except it is mostly from plum altho other fruits can be used too. In Czechia you know this drink under the name Slivovice. Rakija is just name for hard liquer.

    Rakia can be made with just about anything that ferments. Plumb is most common here in Serbia but we also make it from grapes, apples, peach, walnut, pear, mulberry, cherry, honey….

    The one you are looking for is called Komovica in Serbia, made from left overs of grapes. The process is the same as any other I think. Anyways Ill try to find something on english or just translate something later today.

    Edit: Yeah same process like the rest except you just add some water and sugar to the mass and let it ferment. Distillation is the same…

    Drink mad by destilation of wine is vinjak. Yes it is traditional among Southern Slavs, but it is not rakija. Rakija alcoholic beverage that is produced by distillation of fermented fruit (any kind, while plums are most usual). Rakija could have from 25% of Alchocol up to 65% (strongest I heard of). Rakija with smaller ammount of alcohol is called soft (мека ракија) and strong ones are called љута ракија (hot (hot like hot pepper), bitering).
    I dont know what your friend was refering there is rakija from grapes (лозовача, комовица is special kind of лозовача) characteristic for winemaking areas, and there is vinjak, drink made by destilation of wine.

    Keep in mind,making a good rakija is not a piece of cake …….so prepare yourself to end up with "brlja" in the first couple of times…….
    I don't dare to make it ,but if you want a recipe for rakija based liquor I'll post it ( I make it with cherry's , mentha,and mixed herbs ;)  )
    I have never heard of wine rakija before  ???

    I am an expert or a chemist but from what I heard  during distillation the residues ( all kinds of oils and other by-products) are distilled with ethanol. These residues can give terrible hangovers and unpleasant smell. In the production of Vodka distilled liquor is filtered and purified using modern technologies.
    I would say to the author: buy yourself a bottle of quality vodka with natural flavours and be done with it. ;D

    Homemade distilled drinks like Rakija aren't of any lower quality than Vodka from store. Also hangover is experienced drinking any kind of alcohol to much. :D

    The first drops always fall into the water bucket. An American buys, a Slav makes it himself. :) … As far as I know Russians have a quite long tradition of samogons as well.

    I don’t have anything against Rakija or skilful people who are making it.  ;D During distillation process, it’s called fractional distillation, oils and other by-products are distilled with ethanol. Maybe skilful people found a way of filtering the residues out or they use flavours to disguise unpleasant smells of those by-products. The residues will be in liquor unless they are filtered out.

    Usually homemade rakija is far better than industrial. But Hodon would need to learn about fermentation and destilation also he would need rakijski kazan and firewood. Also skills for use of kazan. Homemade destilation us far more sophisticated among Southern Slavs then among Northern.  Sviatogor , just google and you will what is equipment for doing so.

    They do.  ;D

    It used to be popular in the past for many reasons. It's probably still being made in the villages in present days. Urban populations buy their spirits in bottle shops. It’s not worth the hassle making it at home.  :)

    That is actually the way you can distinguish good rakija from bad one -by the smell!
    My uncle used to make the best loza ( Now it got me …..GRAPE RAKIA = LOZA …….lol,I have never asociated it with grapes ) that had absolutly no smell afterwards…..but I have seen some preatty bad ones……..sljivovica is no.1 when it commes to hangover afterwars. ;D

    What are you talking. Matter is how destilation went. Not what fruit was used. Anyway you will have hangover from most refrained alcohol. Hangover is consequence of drunkness.
