Pepper Spirit Cubeb, 500 ml, 40% Vol
Organic Cubeb Pepper from India makes up the foundation of this unique taste experience. Sharpness and a warm bouquet of spicy, exotic and earthy flavors can be expected. Excellent for consumption on its own, as a replacement for cherry liquor in fondue, paired with well matured cheese, or as an accompanying beverage with red meat. Unfiltered.
Pepper Spirit Tweed, 500 ml, 40% Vol
The trio of organically grown Timut pepper, Long pepper and Cubeb pepper make up this drink. The Timut, part of the Szechuan family, has a slight numbing effect on the tongue, which highlights its strong citrus and grapefruit notes more once the taste sensation slowly returns. Cubeb, Timut and spicy Long pepper blend together well and the spiciness (capsaicin) is not distilled into the spirit. Unfiltered. A new taste experience.
Pepper Spirit Wild Madagascar, 500ml, 40% Vol
Although it is only the size of a pinhead, the wild Madagascar pepper comes across much bigger in terms of flavor. Earthy, spicy, exotic scented, black tea aromas and pleasantly rounded and mild, while long lasting and somehow acquainting you with these unfamiliar flavors so quickly. Not spicy. Unfiltered.
Chili Spirit Madagascar - per request
Enjoy chili without fighting the spiciness. Sweet, warm flavors, combined with the scent of the sun and the island of Madagascar, where this small organic chili grows. Combined with Pepper Spirit Cubeb (¾ Chili and ¼ Pepper), it makes for a delicious Bloody Mary, which is best served with a lemongrass stalk. Also suitable for other mix drinks and some fine foods.
Mandarin Spirit, 350 ml, 40% Vol
Some Ur-Mandarin trees, originally cultivated in Sicily, survived on the Greek island of Chios. That's where these unusually delicious fruits come from. Full of seeds, a lot of cleaning and preparing is needed before slightly warm mazeration and subsequent distillation. Very intense in nose and palate, this spirit captures the perfume of the mandarins and preserves it for our pleasure. Memories of taste and smell of mandarins of my childhood are instantly back.
Orange Blossom Spirit, 500 ml, 40% Vol
Organic Sicilian Orange blossoms and the sweet peel of organic oranges win us over with their intense odor, a long, intense perfume-like smell, and the sweet, rounded and passionate exit. Unfiltered, without additional sugars. A few drops already convey a southern vacation feeling.
Bergamot Spirit, 500ml, 41.5%Vol
The Citrus fruit Bergamot grows exclusively at the shores of the coast of Calabria and gives off the sweet smell of italian summer nights, besdt known from the scent of Earl grey tea and as high note in many parfumes. The oil of the fruit has a fresh, oriental fruity and lively nose pared with a subtle aromatic note. The scent is said to improve one's mood. Our organic Bergamot spirit definitely does so in a lasting way. Not filtered & no additives. Produced in Switzerland.
Cacao Spirit, 350 ml, 41.5% Vol.
Cacao Spirit made from the Indian Idukki bean, which was diligently raosted by Chocolate Manufacturer Garcoa in Zurich. Intensive and pure dark chocolate flavor in the nose. Outstanding harmony between nose and palate with great complexity and long finish.
Raspberry Spirit, 500 ml, 40% Vol
Dark red and fully ripened, raspberries from controlled organic production, carefully harvested and immediately shock frozen, are the prerequisite for the abundance of flavor and smell of our most recognized drink. The intense raspberry smell and flavor will take you by surprise.
Raspberry Spirit - Reserve, 500ml, 40%Vol
Can Switzerland’s Best Spirit of 2018 (Orator Raspberry Spirit – Swiss Spirits Award 2018) be eclipsed?
Yes. Our Raspberry Spirit Reserve has twice the amount of organic raspberries and is a full-bodied, earthy, pithy, creamy and long-lasting. Dive in.

The Distillation Process
Distilling is a process of separation. Alcohol evaporates at a lower temperature than water and the distilling process utilizes this fact. By slowly raising the temperature of the mash, alcohol evaporates before water and any particulate material. These vapors are then cooled in order to condense them. The following YouTube video shows the process:
