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.

Products

Bulgarian Rose & Lavender production are at the forefront of our mission at Berjé Trakia. Bulgarian rose oil is renowned for its exceptionally complex aroma, providing a sweet and full-bodied odor that is impossible to replicate. The region’s lavender oil is also remarkably smooth and gorgeous, with a rich floral and herbaceous aroma often utilized for high-end fine fragrance blends. Each of these oils carries their own distinctive aromatic properties, separating them from their more common Mediterranian counterparts.








Our Bulgarian Facility

Berjé Trakia processes a remarkable quantity of rose and lavender flowers each year. Rose, in particular, requires over 3 tons of raw material to produce a single kilo of oil, making the efficiency of our production process incredibly important. Berjé Trakia also aspires to expand into Bulgaria’s other natural herb oils, including fragrant ingredients such as basil, dill, and fennel.
