Wild Raspberry / Waldhimbeere
Derived from the old German term “Hintperi” they are believed to originate in the Turkish Ide mountains. During harvest time the red, round and soft berries are juicy, have an intense scent and burst with flavours.
The raspberries grow in the wilds of the Carpathian forests. They are harvested by hand and taken to collection points on a daily basis and cooled instantly. The berries are shipped to the distillery, where Rochelt mash them at a temperature of around 20 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit). The natural fermentation process of the additive-free berry mash begins quickly within a few hours. After careful double distillation, the treasured brandy middle cut then matures for a minimum of three years in open glass balloons.

They use up to 60kg (120 pounds) of wild raspberries to produce one litre of this precious brandy only, since the natural low sugar content of the berries limits the amount of alcohol that can be produced.

Rochelt is "the distiller" from Tyrol.
