Burebista (aka Burebsita the eternal, Burebista the hairy), 1002BC -100something BC, was a great Dacian ruler, some call him the man who created the modern Romanian drinking habit. He was the one that encouraged, through his progressive views, the production of hard alchohol, by destroying the local wine production units (LWPU). The alcoholic dacian population had no other alternative than to distill all of their belongings. The result was tuica.
