Since ancient times, locals have produced their own alcohol, which is called "Nalivka". This fragrant, tasty and strong drink is made from ripe cherries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, blackberries, blueberries, plums, thorns and other berries that are poured into a bottle and sprinkled with sugar.
