Country: Germany
Region: Black Forest
Producer: Emil Scheibel
Fruit variety: Wild plums of meadows with scattered fruit trees from the Ortenau.

Characteristics: This rare wild plum typical of the Baden region which is as delightful as the region in which it grows, seduces the gourmand with its intensity and abundance of taste.
Drink recommendation: To a special cigar.

Fruit: Unlike many other sorts of fruit the Wild Plum remained unchanged except for today. Picking the fruits is laborious because of the thorns, and the fruit gain is lean.

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.
