The fine Tyrolean Fruit Schnapps best releases its intensive aroma when served in tulip-shaped brandy glasses at a drinking temperature of between 16 and 20°C!
A fruit schnapps or brandy is categorised “Obstler” if it is made from the mash of two or more different fruit varieties, distilled together. Apart from the traditional composition of apple-pear (in some areas apple-pear-plum), the quest for new accents in aroma and taste developed a new range of blends from pip fruit with stone fruit and/or berry fruits. Cuvées from special and wild types with characteristic taste nuances present a broad spectrum for admirers of individual Schnapps types.
When it comes to distilled fruit spirits (fruit schnapps or fruit brandy), opinions drift apart: the one tests its nose, the other considers the “Obstler” as top of the range: “This is schnapps as it ought to be, driven by experience and steered by tradition!” – and yet another one is of the opinion that today’s distilled fruit spirits have never been better. The result?? They are all right!
For, often “Obstler” were mere low-quality alcoholic beverages, e.g. from inferior fruits (windfalls left lying until one eventually found the time to distill schnapps from it). These disdainful kinds of schnapps with numerous blemishes were then served extremely cold and drank likewise.

Last but not least, from these “simple classics” arose the regional and variety-typical fruit specialties (e.g. apple and pear kinds with their specific aromas) to rise to the occasion expected of individual noble brandy masterpieces.
