Spirits from South Tyrol

Schnaps from South Tyrol


This guarantied to warm your heart! Treberschnaps, frequently just called Treber or Grappa is distilled from grape stems.


Great for the digestion. The Enzianschnaps is frequently called bitters and is usually consumed after a heavy and plentiful meal. This improves the digestion.

For the production of the Enzianschnaps mainly the root and the flowers of the gentian plant are being used. A fever lowering component is also attributed to the gentian.


For your health! The “Latschenkiefer” is part of the family of the mountain pine woods. The needles contain healing, ethereal oil with a spicy scent. The oil has a positive effect on the human body by, for example, increasing circulation and loosening bronchial mucus.

Therefore, an alcoholic extract is frequently made from the Latschenkiefer. After two to three weeks the spicy flavor of the oil and its healing powers have traversed into the liquor. Once in a while a small shot of Latschenschnaps can be very healthy.


Fruity in its flavor. In the production of “Obstlerschnaps”, usually 2 (apples and pears) or other fruit varieties are distilled together. The share of the distillate amounts to approx. 50%.
