In search of the Village Distilleries of Maramures is the culmination of a five year project recording this age old practice in one of the most perfectly preserved agrarian cultures in Europe. The author gained access to 40 family owned distilleries and with the help of a translator was able to capture their quite unique atmosphere. The book has a guide to the process of making fruit brandy or Horinca as it is called in Maramures. It is predominantly a photographic study of the people and of the process. The text is presented in English and in Romanian and it is hoped the book will appeal to local people as well as to tourists.The book is on sale at 20 outlets in Romania at a lower price to reflect local conditions.
the book is available on Amazon or from the publisher at an initial price of £15 plus £2 p & p ( UK orders)
