Zirbenz draws its hallmark pine floral aroma, flavors and reddish hues from the freshly picked fruit of the Arolla Stone Pine found high in the Alps. Smooth and mildly sweet. Generations of mountaineers practiced in the art of harvest work with Josef Hofer to create this artisinal liqueur. Enjoy après ski, as an after-dinner drink, or as the highlight to a mixer.
An all natural liqueur traditional to the Alps. Born from an alpine journey of mountaineers and farmers that must ascend to high elevations then climb the trees to pick this wild pine fruit fresh. Traditionally enjoyed in an eau-de-vie glass or snifter, also today in cocktails. Handcrafted and bottled in Austria by Josef Hofer, a family distillery since 1797.
The intriguing bouquet offers a pine cone, cedar, alpine-forest perfume and little else. The palate entry is intensely piny and sappy and marginally sweet; the midpalate highlights the menthol aspect. Finishes bitter with waves of menthol or camphor and pinesap. An idiosyncratic liqueur made with highly skilled distilling and blending craftsmanship.
