With plenty of entertainment and culinary delights the spring edition of the Bulgarian Festival of the Plum came to an end.

It was the new Troyan Chief Mater of Plum Brandy who lit the cauldron of brandy at the central square and launched a day full of fun. The Director of the National Exhibition of Folk arts and crafts in Oreshak Mr. Ivan Chakarov provided the stills for distilling brandy. The brandy mash was provided by Mr. Ivan Dotchev from the Dalbok Dol village and the distillation was carried out by Pavlina Pencheva and Stefan Radev from the Oreshak village.
