Over the last few years, Wolfram Ortner has dedicated himself to “alchemy” when it comes to the manufacturing of high-quality distillates. He has redefined the production of “drugs” (spirits made from dried medicinal herbs and spices) and now produces trendy new products each year by distilling pure alcohol and so-called botanicals. Ortner’s latest coup: the WOB shot series. It is characterised by its highly concentrated alcohol-based flavours and the drinks can be enjoyed as a long drink or straight on their own.
The idea: an explosion of flavours and aromas with very little alcohol.
The practice: a few drops of the shot form the flavoursome basis for a perfect aperitif or long drink. Ideal for those who want less alcohol but more flavour than just pure water.
The shots unleash an “explosion of flavour” on the palate when served straight with an ice cube.
The WOB shots are taking the bar scene by storm when it comes to new trends for mixing drinks, all based on the motto of: “Courage is now available to buy!”
Lav.it (Lav:it) pays homage to love, the lifestyle of southern France and Mediterranean joie de vivre. With numerous fresh aromas – from citrus to peppermint and with delicate hints of aromatic lavender.
Sin.it (Sin:it) stands for “sin and sensuality”. Warm flavours and spiced tones such as tonka bean, cinnamon and clove, embedded in the freshness of lemon, add a touch of Oriental flair.
WOB Love - Lav.it (Lav:it):
The concept: a fresh and concentrated flavour with herbs in distillate form. The predominant lavender flavour combined with peppermint and lemon balm creates a Mediterranean feel. Serving suggestions: “by the drop” with soda for a low alcohol long drink, as a digestif or aperitif, served straight with an ice cube or as the “dot on the i” with a mixer.
0.5 l, 99 proof (49.5 % vol.), vintage 2013, EUR 35.00 (with professional pourer, EUR 39.00)
WOB Sin - Sin.it (Sin:it):
The concept: a warm and concentrated flavour with spices in distillate form. Base notes of cinnamon, clove and tonka bean add a touch of Oriental flair.
Serving suggestions: “by the drop” with soda for a low alcohol long drink, served straight with an ice cube or as the “dot on the i” with a mixer.
0.5 l, 99 proof (49.5% vol.), vintage 2013, EUR 35.00 (with professional pourer, EUR 39.00)
“Lav and sin” go together, as in real life. The two WOB shots are therefore available in a gift box together with two sophisticated mouth-blown glasses from the WOB series “Malt LE” for a price of EUR 113.00.
The pleasures of these “elite drugs” can be experienced from July by sampling the brand-new WOB shots at the distillery in the Nockland region of Carinthia or via the online shop on the website www.wob.at.
