Article: Scheibel Alte Zeit Wilder Bergkirsch
Country: Germany
Region: Black Forest
Producer: Emil Scheibel
Fruit variety: Wild cherries from high positions of the Black Forest.
Alcohol: 44%
Characteristics: A gentle wild cherry flavour at the beginning, swirled by a discreet almond note. Quite far away one thinks to recognize roses. The smell has an easily sweetish component which further continues in the taste. A charming quartet of cherry, almond, plain chocolate and minerals.

Fruit: Unlike the eating cherries the mountain cherries are small, almost black. They are left long on the tree and therefore store all conceivable flavour and minerals.

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.
