Williams C – 2017 Brand von der Vinschgauer Williams Christ, Spiritus Rex
Matthias Sievert, Malente, Schleswig-Holstein
Perhaps you’ve heard of South Tyrol’s legendary Williams pears – Matthias Sievert was able to secure just enough from a particularly good crop from the area southwest of Merano and made them into this fantastically delicious queen of the fruit brandies!
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.
