Title: Vinjak  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Cognac, Šatrovački, Kavadarci
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Previously known as Cognac, this brandy was renamed Vinjak when stricter laws governing the what may be branded Cognac came into force. However, like French cognac, Vinjak is still rated VS (Very Special), VSOP (Very Special Old Pale) or XO (Extra Old) depending on how long it was aged in 500 litre oak casks.

The inventor of Vinjak is Dragoljub Markovic a long-time winemaker from Aleksandrovac (Serbia). He made the first Vinjak in 1933 after finishing the school of winemaking in Paris in 1932 and after he returned to Serbia. His production was almost stopped during the war but ended after the war when communists nationalised his property.

Nowadays Vinjak is produced only by big companies such as Rubin Kruševac company (Serbia).

The drink itself is light brown, and contains 40% alcohol.
