Maraschino - liqueur that smells like Zadar

One of the most interesting elements of vacation is getting to know the local culture and customs. Every place that you visit will enrich your experience with stories about its history and its culture, and also amaze you with its gastronomy and authentic drinks.

It is an original liquer that is made of matured cherry fruit of special kind, authentic in Dalmatia, called maraska. It is specific by its characteristic sweet taste, which has been reserved in the past for a small group of privileged people who were enjoying it for its medicinal properties.
