Wacholder – mild-spicy in flavour
Spirits which are produced on the basis of juniper distillate are referred to as Wacholder. In order to distil high-quality Wacholder schnapps, juniper berries are macerated in a mixture of alcohol and water, and then distilled. The resulting product forms the basis for the clear speciality. The minimum alcohol content of this aromatic spirit with a fresh note is 30 percent by volume.
Our Hardenberg Milder Wacholder is a special treat and is characterised by a mild-spicy flavour. The clear distilled spirit with the wild boar’s head is not dissimilar to the well-known spirit gin in terms of taste and production. But in comparison with Wacholder spirits, gin has higher alcohol content (at least 37.5 percent by volume).
Our recommendation for drinking: enjoy Hardenberg Wacholder as an aperitif or digestif, cooled and pure, because the slightly spicy character best develops in this manner.
