Brački varenik is an indigenous Croatian food product from the island of Brač, protected on an EU level.
It is a reduced liquid food supplement obtained after a long cooking process of the local wine grapes variety’s juice, done when original volume of the grape juice reduces to 1/3.
Due to the 15 hours cooking process and its nutritive value, Brački varenik is sold at around 500 kn per 1 liter (67 E/L).
It is a great replacement for sugar and it has been in use on our island for centuries, long before cane sugar. Brački varenik is perfect addition to stews, homemade biscuits, even ice cream.
It is a perfect gourmet souvenir from the island of Brač and you can order it from our local, certified island producers. Here is a list of their contacts:
