We exclusively use hand-picked, sun-ripened Rowan berries, with the fruit of the older trees providing for an exceptional high quality and spicy distillate for this delicious schnapps; characteristic is its bitter-spicy and fine bouquet and its correspondingly round and full-bodied taste, with a powerful, classy and well-structured after-taste.

„Your genuine piece of Tyrol“ best releases its fruity aroma at a drinking temperature between 16 and 20°C – a true delight for you and your closest friends.
Not only the fruits, also the tree itself has many uses. For example the bark is used to give wool a brown or reddish dye. The wood of the Rowan berry is elastic, fibrillate and nicely grained making it a popular wood for carving and wood turning. In poor forest regions, the forester used to have his hands full to protect the sought-after wood of the Rowan Berry against desperate toy carvers and wood turners.
The Rowan Berry also takes its stance culturally and within popular superstition! For example, in Sweden the tree is supposed to protect the animals in the grazing season against evil spirits. The Celts considered the Eberesche (like the walnut, fir and apple tree) to be a tree of life, and planted them in their holy places of worship. An Irish saying suggests that the Rowan can be used as shelter against lightning and the spells of witches.
