Distillates

Distillation is the process of separating light and heavy components. The different boiling points of water and alcohol are used for the distillation of alcohol. 
Of course, we are primarily interested in the distillation for the production of alcohol. In the fruit distillation, perfect and fully ripe fruits are first harvested. The fruits are set in a barrel with yeast. This metabolizes the sugar and starch in the fruit into alcohol. After a certain time, about 5-10% alcohol has formed in the barrel. 
The mash is now heated to approx. 80°C in a still. heated. Alcohol boils at 78°C and evaporates. The vapor rises in the spirit tube and is liquefied again in the condenser by cooling.

Distillates and their development

As different as the production methods for spirits may be, the following principle applies: Exquisite ones can only be made from flawless ingredients gourmet spirits. Whether it's fruit or herbs - all these raw materials are subject to meticulous selection before they reach the distillery and are expertly processed there. The manufacturing process differs depending on whether the end product is a brandy or spirit.

Brands are made from the mash

Fruit brandy begins its career as a mash. The required alcohol is produced through fermentation, which ensures that aromas are released from the fruit and become part of the mixture. How long a mash needs to completely dissolve the required aromas is in the hands of the master distiller. The subsequent burning process is the heating of the mashed material. The type of still guarantees that the aromas are homogeneously integrated into the rising steam, reach the cooling coil through a riser pipe, where the steam is cooled and leave the still in droplet form. The distillates obtained in this way are clear in color and full of aromas and can be ordered online from us after a certain storage period in high quality.

The production of spirits and herbal spirits

 A spirit is prepared from fruits that do not have enough sugar content to be used for fermentation is sufficient. This is the case, for example, with raspberries. The chopped fruit is soaked in alcohol, which extracts and absorbs the flavors. The process is called maceration. The same procedure is used with herbs for the production of herbal schnapps.

How does color get into the spirits?

The coloring gets a snap after the burning process. It is introduced, for example, in brandy, armagnac, whiskey or mezcal by storing it in wooden barrels. The filling takes on the color of the wood and also the tannins in it, which has a positive effect on the soft taste. The tint of the spirits is also influenced by the type of wood chosen. For example, distillates in an oak cask made of French Limousin oak achieve a light brown tone, while the American oak produces darker nuances.
Herb schnapps get their color from the addition of different herbs. A special product is absinthe. After the firing process, a multi-layered mixture of herbs is added to it, which remains until the appropriate coloring occurs. In the green varieties, this is caused by Pontic wormwood, lemon balm, mint and hyssop. All of our distillates have a different, very special background that distinguishes and characterizes their type.
