Hlebna Sleza is a handmade vodka.
“Hlebna Sleza” brings us back to those ancient times when our ancestors were just mastering distilling. The first producers of vodka or “bread wine” were monasteries, which in the old days were not only cultural and religious centers, but also medical centers. It is no coincidence that at first the term “vodka” was used to designate medicinal tinctures on alcohol. In the 16th century, the same vodka appeared in different groups of goods: “bread wine” as a drink, and “vodka” as a medicine. But the inhabitants of monasteries, monks-distillers, in their own everyday speech did not adhere to formal differences and called vodka also a drink, and not just a medicinal drug based on vodka.
“Bread wine” gradually transformed into “Hlebna Sleza” and, already in the second quarter of the 19th century, “Hlebna Sleza” was called vodka of exceptional, excellent quality of private production.
