Kirsch IS A DISTILLATE MADE FROM CHERRIES, TYPICAL AND TRADITIONAL TO SWITZERLAND AND REGIONS IN THE ALPS. Endowed with a long and interesting history, Kirsch remained a niche spirit, with known strength and savored by local “spirits purist enthusiasts”. After about 3 years of tasting (hard work!) with friends and experts on both sides of the Atlantic we finally reached the level of Mount RIGI – Flavor of the Alps !!! A new generation of Aperitif, the Swiss Aperitif and Cocktail companion with 20% Alcohol and with Kirsch. Mount RIGI, incidentally, is that majestic mountain forming part of the Alps in the heart of Switzerland, home of Kirsch distilling. Scenic views over fingered turquoise lakes, fed with fresh water flows from nearby glaciers. Visitors from near and afar are overwhelmed by the pure air and gentle sloping meadows. Abounding botanicals releasing scents of unique alpine flavors – many of which we’ve captured, and blended with Kirsch. The 1833 built distillery with the vaulted cellar, located on the Zurlaubenhof (manor) in the central Swiss town of Zug, is home of Mount RIGI – Flavor of the Alps. The so named “Brennhüsli” (small still house) with the old wood fired still, now safeguards the iconic recipe.
