Gravenstein Apple
Gravensteiner Apfel

The Gravenstein apple is coveted as a very juicy, highly aromatic and precious apple of outstanding quality. The southern regions of Styria (Austria) offer the best climate conditions for this breed. We harvest all apples by hand, making multiple passes over the course of several weeks to allow each apple to develop its full flavors as it ripens on the tree. This also ensures that our apples are only sorted, cut and placed into the vats for fermentation once they have ripened to perfection.

After natural fermentation and double distillation the precious so-called middle cut rests for a minimum of six years in open glass balloons. While the brandy matures, the weight and strength of the alcohol lessens resulting in a rounder and softer brandy. Our Gravenstein apple brandy is full of fruity and delicate apple flavors.
