Domestic varieties of alcohol are a part of virtually every countries fabric, culture and economy. Romania has a very old tradition of wine making, I've heard the 2nd oldest in the world behind Greece. Many Romanians also make their own wine and spirits, and equipment for this is readily found in DIY building stores and specialty shops.
Some domestic products and labels include
Ursus, Timisoareana, Silva, Ciuc, Neneau Iancu, Stejar, Albacher
Murfatlar, Cotnari, Jidvei, Beciu Domnesc
Rachiu, Palinca, Tuica, Horinca
What are some of the best drinks in Romania you would recommend to a visitor or newcomer? Are there any notable microbreweries or small producers in your region that are worth mentioning.
Personally, I think Ursus is the best domestic beer, especially for the price compared to imports.
