From wines to raki, gliko to medicinal herbs, honey and cheeses, a lively whirlwind of traditional local flavors greets visitors and satisfies even the most discerning palates.
The conscious choice of local producers to become active members of the “Slow Food” movement rewards the territory of Përmet is repeatedly established as a high quality food manufacturer.
In our area about 80,000 liters of wine are produced per year in oak barrels. Riesling, Cabernet and the local Debine are among the most popular varieties. Not to be missed, however, is raki, the local brandy of grape marc, loved throughout Albania and great to drink after a hearty meal, accompanied perhaps by the tasty local cheeses such as feta, caciocavallo, white cheese, ricotta and butter, still produced manually, as tradition dictates!
Along with wines, cheeses and herbs with medicinal properties, Gliko’s packaging (good preparations of figs, nuts and other secretly sweetened fruits) are making the rounds of Europe as ambassadors of the genuinity of a land that mass tourism has not yet been discovered.
