In the "Old" line of products you will find a brandy and two grappas, which have their time spent in the barriques to thank for their aroma, style, and deep, warm color. Purist Florian Rabanser uses small oak barrels, which were previously used by the winemakers of Austrian Burgenland in the manufacturing of their sweet wines, for storage during the maturing process.
The pure variety of rum is manufactured without added sugar or flavors and smells of the aromas of leather, tobacco, dried fruits, and sultanas. It tastes mild and "feinherb" (on the dry side).
These Grappas are distilled grape skins deriving fully ripe and absolutely healthy grapes grown in the Neustift estate, grape skins which yield single grape brandies characterised by clean, pure, clear-cut varietal character.
Gewürztraminer grappa is a noble and special product of our firm. It is rare and exclusive and has a unique aroma and flavour thanks to the distillation of unpressed Gewürztraminer grape marks. Gewüztraminer is a South Tyrolean vine growing in the area of the Wine road (Weinstrasse) around Tramin.
For the production of this liqueur, we various herbs deriving our wildflower meadows, which are sited at the altitudes of 1000 to 1300 meters. The herbs are left to infuse for approximately 45 days: the infusion is cold so that the active ingredients and properties of the raw materials could be preserved. The scent of this infusion is reminiscent of that one of the freshly harvested hay, and the taste is intense, herbaceous and persistent.
