Each country has its own peculiarities of preparation of traditional alcoholic beverages and Montenegro is not an exception. For decades, the traditional Montenegrin alcoholic drinks are popular with tourists from all over the world and become a souvenir, reminding of the country long time ago.

The culture of alcohol consumption in Montenegro has a long tradition. In the vicinity of the Skadar Lake and the area Tsrmnitsa vines (grapes) were grown and, therefore, produced wine in III and II century BC. To this day, the Montenegrins are famous for their red and white wine ( "Vranac" and "Krstac") produced from the local, very tasty and sweet grapes. On the territory of Montenegro, a popular strong alcoholic drink - rakija (vodka with an alcohol content of 50-60%) is also produced, beer Niksicko (the only brewery in Montenegro located in Niksic) and even mead. In vino veritas - the truth is in wine! Apparently, this is true, as you take into account that since the beginning of the XXI century the consumption of alcoholic beverages in Montenegro increased in 2.5 times.
