This variety of apple has been around since the mid-17th century. It first emerged in the gardens of the Gravenstein palace in Schleswig. The Gravenstein apple is coveted as a very juicy, highly aromatic and precious apple of outstanding quality.

The southern regions of Styria (Austria) offer the best climate conditions for this breed. They harvest the apples by hand, making multiple passes over the course of several weeks to allow each apple to develop its full flavours as it ripens on the tree. This also ensures that the apples are only sorted, cut and placed into the vats for fermentation once they have ripend to perfection.

After natural fermentation and double distillation the precious so called schnapps middle cut rests for minimum five years in open glass balloons. While the schnapps matures, the weight and strength of the alcohol lessens resulting in a rounder and softer schnapps. 

Rochelt is "the distiller" from Tyrol.
