The Perger honey-dough biscuits are a culinary, cultural and ethnological highlight and it is impossible to compare them with any other honey-dough biscuits, even if their appearance resembles the Nüremberg gingerbreads. Ours are the type that must simply be put into the mouth and enjoyed immensely. Actually, I am unsure now whether our customers visit our office because of us or if they come for the delicious Perger honey-dough biscuits.
The deepest family secrets from 1757 until today.

For many years now, the Perger energy candle called Infinity has been decorating our home and inspiring our family. My wife and I presented an energy candle with a special personal inscription to the Dembitz couple, 2 real-estate experts from Geneve, on the occasion of their family celebration with 350 guests high up in the Swiss Alps, at an altitude of 3,300 metres. Even with so many prestigious gifts from all around, every single guest enjoyed the mesmerising fragrance of the Perger candle.

These gifts were presented as protocol gifts of the Republic of Slovenia and were extremely well accepted everywhere, in Slovenia and abroad. We are pleased to note that our cooperation is successful and correct, given that the company always gives its best and strives to cater to our wishes.

Your energy candle has become an indispensible companion to my meditation practice. For me, its fragrance is like a starting mantra before I start practising asanas. When I sit in my yoga nook and I begin to smell the ‘fragrant infinity’, I know I can have all the time all myself and for my journey. The fragrance of the honey perfume and candle’s pulsating energy help me calm my breathing, heart beat and thus pacify my flow of thoughts.
The Perger’s impressive honeybread hearts, energy candles and honey-dough biscuits remind us of the old Central European masterly tradition of which we have been part for centuries.
We love to decorate our Mini teater theatre with their ornaments for every occasion, from our Medieval Day and Merry December to all the fairy-tales that we turn into theatrical shows for our youngest audience members.
Every time we go on tour abroad, Perger’s honeybread hearts are highly appreciated gifts, bringing the spirit and the essence of our homeland Slovenia to our foreign friends. It is for this reason that we have taken them all around the world, from the North and South Americas, through to Asia and Africa, all the way to Australia.

We cooperated with Perger 1757 on various occasions when we needed business or more personal gifts, completed with an original story and impeccable execution.
They always responded quickly, catered to our needs and fitted their products with a special, local note that persuades both the gift giver and recipient.
High responsiveness, high-quality work and a friendly attitude are points of excellence we seek in our suppliers, which is why we will also be happy to cooperate with Perger 1757 in the future.

I have become enthusiastic about the energy candle because it helped my children deal with chronic insomnia. From my own experience, I advise anyone with any sleeping problems to try this.

We, Slovenian dancers, travel around the world without interpreters, yet we still think of ourselves as excellent cultural ambassadors.
During our tours abroad and at countless receptions or protocol meetings with presidents of states and governments… we always present as a gift a SLOVEnian honeybread heart designed and created by the masters of the Perger family from Slovenj Gradec. We always give it with joy, pride and respect.
We thereby add an artistic touch to special memories.

We wanted our wedding to be a combination of modern with traditional. When we were exploring traditional wedding favours for guests, the first idea that crossed our minds was Perger’s honey-dough biscuits. Tradition that never disappoints. The Pergers listened to all our wishes and made exactly what we wanted. The smiling faces of our wedding guests when receiving the gifts confirmed that we had made the right decision.

I am very pleased to have a new story now that I can tell when travelling around the world, because people are always interested in what is special in Slovenia. And the story of the Perger family is really one of a kind, one of the most beautiful, among the best in Slovenia, as there are not many such traditions. Besides that, I am strongly inspired by their originality, dedication and ideas, and the way they make themselves known to the rest of the world.
