The Gravenstein apple is a juicy, highly aromatic apple of outstanding quality. Unfortunately, due to its limited crop yields and short storage life, it is a variety which is rarely cultivated these days.
The south-western regions of Styria (Austria) offer the best climate conditions for this apple which develops its subtle flavors through the variation between warm summer days and cool nights.
Every apple stays on the tree until it is fully ripe. We make multiple passes through the orchard and pick only those apples which meet out strict criteria. At the end of each day, the freshly harvested apples are mashed on-site to ensure absolute freshness.
Distilled and matured, the result is a wonderfully rich and powerful brandy full of delicate fruity apple flavors.
Artists and alchemists have one thing in common: both take something which already exists and transform it into something new. We have devoted ourselves to the art of transforming the finest fruit available into exquisite fruit brandy. As a family-run business, we are passionate about preserving this centuries-old Tyrolean tradition.
In the knowledge that it is only possible to produce outstanding brandy by using first-class fruit, we select the finest varieties from the best growing regions. Our fruit is harvested at maximum ripeness and left to ferment naturally. Once it has been gently distilled twice, the brandy matures slowly over several years in order to bring the full flavor of the fruit to its purest form. That is the essence of traditional fruit brandy from Tyrol.
