Quince has been known since the time of the Trojan wars and it is highly regarded as a symbol of love and fertility by many people and cultures. Derived from the Latin word cydonia - apple from Kydon/Crete.
Raw quince is too hard and acidic for consumption. Once processed it becomes a rare delicacy, such as quince jelly, compote or brandy. Our quince is called “Ronda” and comes from Upper Austria. It is pear-shaped, has a felt like yellow/gold skin at the time of perfect ripeness and bursts with fruity aromas.
The hand-picked fruits are first cleaned and sorted, then chopped and placed into large vats for fermentation. Later they carefully distil the fermented and additive-free mash twice in copper pot stills - following an old Tyrolean tradition. The precious so-called middle cut rests and matures for a minimum of six years in open glass balloons.
Rochelt is "the distiller" from Tyrol.
