What is tar?
It is a thick, oily black liquid, with a very strong characteristic odor, which is produced by the specialized combustion of the torch. The dadi (Vlach janta) is the inner part, that is, the heart of the old resinous pines that thrive on stony and dry soils.
Tar was produced at least in Epirus and Western Macedonia, especially in Distrato. Distrato, formerly Briaza, is a Vlach village at the foot of Smolikas and Vasilitsa, at an altitude of a thousand meters.
Distratiotes until the mid-1970s were the exclusive producers and owners of tar, hence the nickname ″ katranades ″
In recent years, an attempt has been made to revive the production of the traditional product by K. Paganias Konstantinos (former Common Leader of Distratos) and the result is this excellent product.
