Rochelt apple brandy

A fruity elixir in an arresting emerald bottle

The bottle alone is justification enough for putting this apple brandy on your wish list. Its design is based on a 250-year-old traditional Tyrolean bottle originally produced in a tiny town outside Innsbruck, the arresting emerald rivulets reminiscent of the local river Inn. But the powerfully fruity elixir – made by Rochelt, a family-run distillery in Tyrol, using 100 per cent pure distillate matured for nine years in open glass balloons – is equally compelling. Long on the finish, it is best served straight up as a lip-smacking post-dinner pick‑me-up.
