Old Cox – 2009 Brand vom roten Holsteiner Cox aus dem Calvados Fass, Spiritus Rex
Matthias Sievert, Malente, Schleswig-Holstein
300 bottles against the crisis: this brandy of Red Holstein Cox was meant to remain dormant in its Calvados barrel for the next 20 years. But with 2020 being what it is, Matthias has decided to to waken it from its sweet slumber a whole nine years ahead of schedule.
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.
