Golles Cherry Brandy
Sweet, aromatic “heart” cherries with dark fruit flesh are stoned before crushing, and only 10 to 15% of the stones are returned to the mash. This serves to produce a cherry schnapps of consummate character: it possesses a great deal of fruit and a only small amount of stone taste, and features a delicately nuanced fragrance with a delicious trace of marzipan. The Golles family has been cultivating orchards in the sunny hill country around Austria’s Riegersburg Castle for four generations. Since the beginning of the 1980s, they have specialized in manufacturing fine vinegars and premium spirits by hand. Particular emphasis is placed on the use of only the highest quality products, because only the naturally delicious taste of flawless, sun-ripened fruits or excellent wines is a suitable basis for producing dense and robust schnapps or elegant, delicately aromatic vinegar.
