Hans Reisetbauer Apricot Eau de Vie 375ml
In 1990, Hans Reisetbauer planted his first apple orchard. Soon after, Hans gained notoriety in 1995 by winning "Schnapps of the Year" at the Destillata Specialist Trade Fair. Reisetbauer has been named "Master Distiller of the Year" by the Austrian gourmet guide A la Carte a number of times. Hans Reisetbauer’s dedication to his orchards, obsessive attention to detail in fermentation and distillation, as well as constant quest for new innovations has led him to be considered one of the finest producers of Eau de Vie in the world. In order to control the quality of his products, Hans grows as much fruit and vegetables as possible on his own property, including the grains that go into his vodka, gins, and whiskies. He has also done careful comparisons to find the best water for use in his process, exclusively using spring water from Mühlviertel. As Hans explains, "Temperature, time and aeration during fermentation, as well as condition of raw material are important factors influencing the quality of the final product."
It is far too rainy in Axberg to grow apricots. For this eau de vie, Hans enlisted the help of his best friend and Skurnik wine producer, Bernhard Ott. Intense aroma, fresh-fruity, typical ripe yet elegant stone-fruit notes; soft and creamy on the palate with silky, mellow fruitiness. An intense apricot bouquet, delicately and beautifully balanced. Month of Harvest: July Fermentation: 8-9 days Kg Fruit/Liter: 15kg-19kg ABV%- 42%
