Base Ingredients: Organic neutral wheat spirit, gentian, rhubarb, wormwood, organic cane sugar, organic Sicilian lemon juice, organic elderberry extract.
Processing: Gentian, rhubarb, and wormwood are macerated in organic neutral wheat spirit for a month; the botanicals are separated, and the resulting extract is mixed with organic cane sugar, Sicilian lemon juice, and elderberry extract.
Still Type: Copper pot still
Distiller: Theodor and Matthias Walcher
Distillation: Distillation using the waterbath or "bain marie" method
Description: Walcher’s organic brandies depend on the quality of the raw materials used to produce them. All of the fruit can be traced back to the original fruit tree, and is stored for as short a time possible. The waterbath, or double boiler, method of distillation guarantees that the valuable essences and flavors of the fruit are preserved in the final spirit. The resulting alcoholic beverages thus retain their aromatic character and taste.
