History & Heritage
Located within a verdant Bulgarian valley steeped in history and tradition, Berjé Trakia represents the marriage between old world heritage and new world technology. The facility occupies the same land once held by Thracian Greeks and the Odrysian Kingdoms; a land brimming with culture and mythology. Orpheus, the legendary Greek Poet, is said to have lived in Bulgaria during the era of antiquity, writing some of the most venerable poems and songs of his time.
But this region is home to more than just history and myths. The valley in which Berjé Trakia operates is home to some of the most precious and delicate flowers across the entire world, including the legendary Bulgarian Rose & Lavender. These flowers have been cultivated and hand-picked by locals for centuries, with rose oil acting as the region’s primary export for over 400 years. Today, Berjé Trakia continues the tradition of harvesting these crops through local growers and distillers, supporting the original Bulgarian growing methods that have existed for countless generations.
