The fire liqueurs are absolute Tyrolean spirit classics. They are exclusively made at the Baumann distillery. These liqueurs with a high alcohol volume have interesting flavours. They are great for flambéing. The traditional Tyrolean fire ritual is celebrated with fireproof schnapps glasses. The fascinating ice crystals in the bottles are created in the special way of producing the liqueurs and are a well-kept secret of the Kräuterdestillerie.
The evergreen, aromatic juniper bush grows even at altitudes over 3,700m in the Tyrolean Alps. However, our production colleagues didn’t have to climb that high: There are good spots for collecting it at about 1,700m, a little above the Kemater Alm pasture and in the foothills of the Kalkkogel mountain. The Juniper “berries” (botanically correct is the designation “cones”), have to ripen on the bush for 3 years before they have their characteristic blue-black colour and their spicy aroma.
Dann erst werden sie im Team von Hand geerntet, um zu einer Reihe wohlschmeckender Tiroler Spirituosen Spezialitäten verarbeitet zu werden – zum einzigartigen Tiroler Berg Gin, dem Kristall Eis & Feuerlikör oder zum Tiroler Bergkräuterlikör.
