About the brand Berryshka

Passion. Love. Boldness.

An idea, hard work and a wish.

Berryshka is a Slovenian Brand created by family Kenda from Šentvid pri Stični. Their story begins in the early ninety’s when current owners Jože and his son Samo Kenda invested in the old distillery close by Kočevski Rog rainforest, in a little village called Dolenjske Toplice. They began with the production of juniper essential oil, which stays the main product even today. After almost two decades of hard work, they decided to make something special, something unique. The idea of Berryshka was born in a distillation room of the old distillery.

Juniper Brandy was the first product in the Berryshka collection, followed by BrinGin and first Slovenian Gin ever made: Berryshka London Dry Gin. Later on, six fruit liqueurs were joined to the collection. Today one can find twelve products in Berryshka spirit and liqueur assortment, among them one and only Juniper Brandy aged in oak barrels. All of the drinks have won different international prizes for quality.


After some years, daughter Zdenka steps in and spreads family business into chocolatier. She created chocolate in different shapes and forms – from divine pralines to original chocolate cups.

The distillery has been renovated through the years. Today one can find there not only the distil areas, but also chocolatier, a small café with terrace and a small shop with all Berryshka products – from chocolates to hand sanitizers by brand BF. There is also a possibility of guided tours for everyone that are interested how Berryshka products are made.

Mutual cooperation, great skills and wealth of both knowledge and experience is the strength upon which Berryshka was founded. Berryshka offers an opportunity to discover new worlds, experience new tastes and genuine flavour and all based upon the family’s belief and trust in good spirits.
