Quince
Quitte

Raw quince is too hard and acidic for consumption. Once processed it becomes a rare delicacy. Our quince is called “Ronda” and comes from Upper Austria. It is pear-shaped, has a feltlike yellow/gold skin at the time of perfect ripeness and bursts with fruity aromas.

The hand-picked fruits are first cleaned and sorted, then chopped and placed into large vats for fermentation. Later we carefully distil the fermented and additive-free mash twice in our copper pot stills.. The precious so-called middle cut rests and matures for a minimum of six years in open glass balloons. The result: a well-balanced quince brandy full of aromatic honey flavors.
