Apricot Spirit - a sensual midsummer nights’ dream
It takes a lot of loving care to create an excellent apricot spirit. The secret of the art lies in retaining the character of the fruit in its original form. This is not always easy, particularly as nature has its moods too.
Apricots from Wallis in Switzerland must be perfectly ripe, as only then can a first-class distillate be achieved. In the best locations of the “Rive droite” in Wallis, our contract supplier has to walk through the apricot orchards several times to pick the very ripe fruit by hand. As these fragile apricots wouldn’t travel well in the hot summer season, the maturing process – when the fructose turns naturally into alcohol - takes place on the spot in Wallis. The fermented apricot mash is then transported to Zug, where it is distilled immediately on arrival. After our special distilling process, the apricot spirit is stored for approx. 36 months in 50 litre demijohns until its delicate, fruity aroma is released and full harmony achieved.
When matured to perfection, it stands before you in an elegant digestif glass and delights your senses with its fruity, sweet taste and delicate bouquet. Let’s pause for a moment and give ourselves time to enjoy this sublime pleasure. Good health!
