from our farm Schörgerer
Fine brandies from Schörgerer
Schnapps & Edelbrand from Schörgerer! In front of our farmhouse there are two orchards. These are mainly apple and pear varieties typical of the region, such as (rose apples, Salzburger, Kronzels, Rote Pichl pears, Eigelsbacher pears, water pears).
A part of the apples is pressed to natural cloudy apple juice (ca.500 lt) and served as thirst quencher in the farm and Penzinghof. The other fruit is carefully mashed in its entirety. The crushed fruit is fermented in 200 lt. barrels enriched with yeast and enzymes. Then, in the fall, the distillation pot is fired up and schnapps is distilled. At present we use a 100 lt. water bath still from Eduard Holstein.
The self-distilled is stored for a few months, then set up with spring water, bottled in 0.5 lt. bottles, labeled and sealed. The marketing takes place via the Penzinghof or the Liftradl & Schörgerer Hofladen.
Who wants to know more – on Friday you are welcome to visit the distillery & farm. Taste rowan, pear, apple, masterwort, raspberry, … from Andreas & Stefan Lindner!
