Wine Enthusiast 86 points - Distilled from wild raspberries from the Carpathian mountains, this eau de vie has a light, faint berry scent and flavor, marked by a slight bitterness similar to that found in some flavored vodkas. The finish exhales more waxy berry, plus a flicker of alcohol heat. - K.N.  (Dec 2014)

Wine maker notes
The word "Geist", as in Himbeergeist (raspberry), is used when fruits that are highly fragrant but low in sugar, like berries, are covered in neutral alcohol in the unfermented state in order to preserve their flavour and are then macerated for a lengthy period. The mash obtained in this way is subsequently distilled by the same process, with the distilled spirits being referred to as "Geist".

Producer
Schladerer has its origin in the little town of Staufen in Germany’s historic Black Forest. Over 160 years ago, Sixtus Schladerer began making fruit brandies for guests at his restaurant. The product was something intimate, to be handcrafted and served to close friends. It is with this belief in mind that Schladerer is still family-owned and adheres to traditional values of responsibility and commitment to quality above all else.
