Resolved Question: Where can I buy
I am a recent resident of Vancouver, and I would love to know if there is a place where I can get a bottle of our traditional Bulgarian Rakia - it's very comparable to grape brandy (something like the Italian grappa), but it's has specific Bulgarian style. We the Bulgarians usually pair it with feta cheese, salads, or marinaded vegetables. I tried at least 10 BC Liquor Stores but none I found. They only have the Serbian "Sljivovica", and although similar, it's a plum brandy which has different flavour. Any answers will be much appreciated!
