All about the tour

Overview

Treat yourself to an unforgettable tasting experience while you are in Bratislava! Alcohol plays a significant role in the culture of Slovakia. Important thing to know when it comes to drinking in Slovakia is that some locally distilled spirits may be stronger than what you are used to.

Among distinguished Slovak spirits, the most famous and favourite is Slivovitz – a plum brandy, commonly known as Palinka (52 %). Palinka could have variety of flavours, such as pear, apple, cherry, peach, apricot etc.  These spirits are produced according to the old proven recipes. Their delicious taste can be described as a kind of aphrodisiac for the body and soul.

Another popular distillate is local gin Borovicka (40 %), it is made from fermented juniper berries with the addition of fine quality alcohol. The result is gentle and delicate gin. Na zdravie!

Taste Bratislava Brewery Tour

Me and a group of friends were traveling to Bratislava for a weekend and we decided to take the beer tour. It was a great experience that allowed us to try several different types of craft beers and to get to know a lot about each one. Our tour guides were perfect and also helped us a lot with other tips about where to go/what to do in the city. Overall, it was a perfect experience and I would advise it to anyone who likes craft beers and wants a cool afternoon program when in Bratislava.

Excellent food and drink tour

Really good tour, the guide explained the origins of the food and drink served with us so we had understanding of the history and how the locals view the food. There was lots of food and drink so very well fed. I struggled to finish everything, which is a sign of great value of money.
