Made by a family-owned operation in Austria, it basically tastes the way a Christmas tree smells. Intrepid locals journey high into the Alps to pick the fruit of the Arolla Stone Pine, used to create the compelling liqueur. It’s piney, just sweet enough up front but bone-dry on the finish, and it’s about as festive as they come.
The intriguing bouquet offers a pine cone, cedar, alpine-forest perfume and little else. The palate entry is intensely piny and sappy and marginally sweet; the midpalate highlights the menthol aspect. Finishes bitter with waves of menthol or camphor and pinesap. An idiosyncratic liqueur made with highly skilled distilling and blending craftsmanship.
