Scheibel Old Zeit 56%iger Acher-Cherry
|Scheibel Alte Zeit 56%iger Acher-Kirsch
|Black cherries grown in the Acher valley
|A powerful, sweet cherry flavour begins, followed by small tirades of vanilla, cinnamon and cloves. A light veil of marzipan and chocolate gives the whole a mysteriously exotic air.
Fruit: These little sweet cherries grow in the Achertal. Up to the midsummer they let them on the tree to make use of the last sunbeams to take fully ripe fruits Stored for at least ten years into demijohns.
Raw materials: The purer and the more exquisite the raw material, the more perfect the quality of the product. In the same way that a diamond cutter recognises the potential offered by a raw stone, a gifted master distiller will try to obtain the best possible result from a fruit. It takes time and experience to select the best fruit for our distillates.
Ennoblement: It is essentially the cutter's skill which changes a rough diamond into a high quality gemstone. It requires intuition, skill and a delicate approach. This applies equally to the distiller although the material with which he works will also play an essential part. Scheibel rely for this purpose on the unique wood-fired stoves of Scheibels "Alte Zeit" distillery.
Fine tuning: Quality requires time. And time is what they devote to their product: a long storage time in wooden casks, clay vessels or wicker bottles to allow them to mature slowly. Only when the right level of maturity has been reached do they bottle them. This is the point when the fruit has changed from a rough diamond into a jewel of high purity, clarity and seductive sparkle.
