Many herbs, roots, seeds and berries are brought to us by herbal collectors from the valleys and the high pasture lands of the Tyrolean Alps. The freshly picked herbs are then carefully macerated – steeped in alcohol for many weeks – to allow for the release of the valuable substances in the plants.
The individual herbal extracts then mature cautiously in barrels. Subsequently, the essences are “married” with each other according to a preordained recipe with fine-tuned stages, i.e. painstakingly mixed. This gentle processing ensures that the invaluable substances of the plants are being conserved in the herbal extracts. This Root Bitter is a typical Tyrolean Herbal Bitter. To make it particularly pleasant for the palate, we sweetened it lightly with bee honey. This is how this delicious Tyrolean Herbal Specialty is made.
For more than 100 years we at the Tyrolean herb liquer distillery have been creating genuine Tyrolean specialties with love and care.
