NEKTAR Beer 5% vol. alc. 330ml bottle
style: German Pilsner (Pale Lager)
Banjalucka Pivara (brewery) was founded in 1873 by the monks of the monastery Maria Star to produce beer for their own needs. These monks belonged to the Trappist order with the world known old monastic tradition of preparing a good beer. Their beer recipes remained strictly guarded through the centuries. Many of the Trappist monasteries and breweries were destroyed during the revolutions and world wars. Among the monastic breweries, the Trappists were certainly the most active brewers: in the last 300 years, there were at least nine Trappist breweries in Europe. One of them, Banjalucka Pivara located in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, is still active and produces beers based on Trappist monks’ old recipes.

"(...)From popping the cap on this one until it's all gone you just have to be impressed by this beers appearance. It has a lovely golden colour with a large (3-4 finger) white head of tight little bubbles. There doesn't appear to be a heap of carbonation, but the retention of the head is magnificent and it also leaves a very impressive web of lacing. It's a highly impressive looking beer! (...)

MEDUSKA Honey Liqueur 25% vol.alc. 700ml
Honey was favourite food and drink of the ancient Slavs. Out of honey and only honey, our ancestors prepared medicinal beverage 'mead'.

Slavic countries covered with strong lime-trees for honey bees were an ideal habitat. Long and cold winter enabled the bees to prepare the best honey out of which our ancestors prepared this medicinal beverage. Wishing to bring together the spirit of the past and the present times, the company produced a honey liqueur Meduska. It was produced according to their own formulation in which our ancestors experience and spirit of the present times are blended.
