My Djed makes the best homemade moonshine.  He just made some in his backyard (legal for home use, not sale) and brought some over to me.  I am almost through the jug he brought and looking for a refill.  Can anyone give me a lesson on making Croatian Rakija in the backyard?  If I could make my own I would be so awesome ;-)

I have a hobby to made croatian wiskey [ Rakija ]. we made distillation of grape and after that proces we put in small glass botles together with  forest fruits like blackberry, raspberries or some forest plants like mint [ metvica ] , lavanda, lady pan,...  When you do that  close the botle and put in dark and cold place for a few month. You need to combinate of fruits and herbs to getting better taste of Rakija. And that kind of combination is unique for each manufacturer... So you need to find out your own recipe
