Marille Royal – 2019 Likör von der Wachauer Marille, Spiritus Rex
Matthias Sievert, Malente, Schleswig-Holstein
A beautifully coloured and textured liquor of Wachau apricots; Matthias Siervert shows their full complexity and taste profile, including the stones.
Fruit brandy legend Christoph Keller refers to him as his brother in spirit/s – and we are just as excited about Matthias Sievert’s Spiritus Rex distillery. Filling the void left by the closure of the vanguard Stählemühle, Matthias Sievert uses excellent, traditional craftsmanship to produce fruit brandies of exceptional quality. Based in Schleswig Holstein’s Bad Malente, Matthias handpicks only the finest ingredients – whether it’s rare plums from a tucked-away orchard in Northern Germany or South Tyrol’s unparalleled pears.
