In Search of the Village Distilleries of Maramureș


This book is a celebration in photographs of the art of village fruit brandy distillation in Maramures , the most remote and most traditional province of Romania. The ‘cazan' or ‘still' lies at the heart of the agrarian culture. The book tries to distill the essence of the culture both in photographs of the brandy making, but also of the surrounding villages, people and places. The book is written in English but with a full Romanian translation. The author also describes his long term relationship with Romania which started in 1970 with a motorcycle trip through Transylvania.
