Zlivowitz – 2015 Brand von der Bühler Zwetschge aus dem Limousin Eichenfass, Spiritus Rex
Matthias Sievert, Malente, Schleswig-Holstein
Made with the excellent fruit of Peter Wilkins’ 50-year old Bühl plum trees – ripened in Limousin oak barrels, Sliwowitz-style.
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.
