Ovum – 2020 Rachuter Eierlikör mit Benjaminer Kirsche, Spiritus Rex
Matthias Sievert, Malente, Schleswig-Holstein
A much needed comeback for egg nog! What makes this one so special is the addition of cherry brandy from Benjamin cherries of the Haselbach valley, turning it into a complex and multifaceted drink. No added cream – it keeps forever and tastes amazing.
Drink at around 10-14°C.
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.
