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.
On 19 September 1991, a Neolithic glacier mummy was found near the Tisenjoch on the main ridge of the Ötztal Alps at an altitude of 3,210m. The discovery of the "Hauslabjoch Man" from around 3400 BC was a sensation. The "Iceman" was found in a trench of the Similaun glacier, which slid across this trench fore more than 5,300 years, so that the mummy referred to as “Ötzi” was found relatively unscathed. Only with the retreat of the glacier ice, the discovery site became accessible.
Since March 1998, the “Mummy from the Similaun” has been on display in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano. Because Ötzi, the Iceman was found in the border region between the North and South Tyrol, both Italy and Austria initially laid claim to the find. According to the border demarcation agreed in 1918, the site where the mummy was found is on Italian territory. A new state treaty between Austria and Italy has been in force since 2006, in which the watershed is confirmed as border. However, an exception was defined for the Tisenjoch, the site where the “Man from the Similaun” was found and thus the finding site is in the Italian Tyrol.
