Schloss Fels – Shelves of variety

For the last 30 years, Weingut Schloss Fels has been amongst the top vineyards and spirit producers. Today, nearly 90 hectares of own vineyards are cultivated in Fels and Rohrendorf near Krems, making this one of the largest winegrowing estates in Austria.

The vineyard’s home-grown wines are marketed under the brand name ‘Weingut Schloss Fels’. Grapes from contracted winegrowers are also processed and used in the company, but only where they meet the strict quality criteria.

Managing director Klaus Klein clearly defines the company’s standards: “Schloss Fels stands for regional products, traditional methods, the latest technology and uncompromising quality control.”

Apart from wine, spirits are also produced, which are sold under the brand names ‘Felser’ (clear schnapps, rum and speciality blends), TAIGA Wódka, Silver Crown Gin, Golden Dew Scotch Whisky, Barbossa light Rum and ‘Desirée’ (a mild brandy matured in oak casks). The motto is: high quality at entry-level prices. All products are available in Austria exclusively via the distribution channels of SPAR Österreichische Warenhandels AG: SPAR-Markt, EUROSPAR and INTERSPAR, and some are also available at METRO.

Classified as a First Class Distillery 2016, the business won a whole row of medals at the World Spirits Award: gold for Felser Williams schnapps, Felser hazelnut spirit, Felser raspberry spirit, Silver Crown Special Dry Gin, Felser herb bitter, Felser advocaat and Barbossa Superior Rum, silver for Felser Selection apricot brandy, Felser apricot schnapps, cranberry liqueur and Barbossa Spiced Gold, as well as bronze for Felser Selection Williams brandy.

Anton Riemerschmid – Premium Tea Liqueur with a history

The name Anton Riemerschmid – a company of the Underberg Group – refers to a pioneer in the manufacture of spirits. Anton Riemerschmid was an inventive citizen of the world, who devised many specialities or brought them to Germany. He travelled the world for centuries in search of new aromas and new flavour sensations. One such is also TIFFIN, a Premium Tea Liqueur distilled from selected high quality tea varieties.

The story of tea began in China around 2750 BC. Legend has it that as the Emperor Shen Nung sat in the shade of wild tea trees whilst boiling some water, the wind blew some of the tea leaves into the pot, which gave the water an exquisite flavour. Today the delicious flavour of tea is expertly combined into the production of liqueur to create a unique product with a light refreshing taste. TIFFIN tastes equally good neat, mixed or with ice, and is a market leader in Japan.

TIFFIN won Gold at the World Spirits Award.

Ehrenwert GmbH: One recipe – two families


One recipe – two families. Each family has its own carefully guarded secret recipe, and with the Lücke family this remained in the hands of grandfather Heinz and later his son Dieter for many dec-ades. Long enough, thought sons Thomas and Christian. In any case, it is the ‘Felsenfeuer’ herb liqueur that has once made the Lücke Distillery one of the most important in Münsterland. After the war they continued the success story, which first began in the 18th century, with this herb liqueur, using the rec-ipe that Heinz Lücke worked out. In the 1950s everyone was talking about it, but in the 1960s the era of the distillery and the herb liqueur ended. But not for good – 60 years later it celebrated its resur-rection with the ‘Freudenfeuer’.

Whilst searching for a distillery, Thomas and Christian kept to family tradition, as their grandmother was a Sasse, and their fine distillery in Schöppingen is still well known today. Following a traditional recipe from 1947 the new liqueur is distilled in small batches and, after a ten-day rest period, is bot-tled by hand. Ready to enjoy: neat and ice cold like in grandfather’s time, or smoother, on ice with lightly pressed orange zest, or as a basis for a long drink with tonic water or ginger ale. To old times and new friends!

At the World Spirits Award, there was silver for Freudenfeuer Herb Liqueur.
