A schnapps is a high-proof alcoholic drink. Colloquially, it includes fruit schnapps, fruit brandy, spirits, but also herbal liqueurs, bitters and other spirits. Legally, the term fruit schnapps is precisely regulated. The alcohol content of the fruit schnapps must be at least 33% and the schnapps must not be flavoured or coloured.
A good schnapps is made from sun-ripened fruit with an intense flavour. The mashing and distilling are done by an experienced distiller. What makes a good schnapps? A good schnapps is mild, tastes intensely of the processed fruit and is an absolutely natural product.
