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 herbal extracts are cautiously distilled and filtered, before being poured into vats to mature. This careful processing allows the valuable substances to be preserved in the herbal extracts. The “spirited” end-product is bottled only after a maturing period of at least 12 months. This is how this spicy and pleasant herbal specialty from Tirol is produced.
