Put but three apricots on the table to fill the entire room with the scent of apricot. The soft scent of fully ripe fruits makes this Apricot Schnapps so pleasant and unique! Its aftertaste is subtle, fleshy and succulent with a polite, blushing almond shade.
The geuine Tyrolean Apricot Schnapps goes perfectly with a Kaiserschmarrn and apricot compote.
About the Apricot Schnapps
Only sun-ripened and hand-picked apricots from the Southern Tyrolean orchards of Vinschgau are utilised for this blissful fruit schnapps. These fruits adore warmth and sunshine, not too much rain, abundant wind and loose, not too rich soil: the Vinschgau valley provides it all to make our apricots thrive!
Where does the apricot come from?
The “Marille” designation for apricot is used customarily in Austria, Southern Tyrol and parts of Bavaria. The fruits were already known in Armenia in ancient times. Because they were cultivated there long ago, it has become an accepted fact that apricots stem from Armenia. The botanical name „Prunus armeniaca“ is also based on this derivation. Other sources suggest that China might be genetically its country of origin, whereas other arguments are strongly in favour of India as place of the apricot’s original cultivation.
Nowadays apricots are produced especially in Mediterranean countries like Spain or Italy. However, also in more northerly regions like Vinschgau in Southern Tirol and Wachau in Austria, where these succulent fruits are harvested between mid-July and mid/end of August.
