A blueberry liqueur by any other name would taste as sweet.

The Freihof Distillery started as a public house — a rooming house with a pub attached to it — in Austria back in 1885. From there is wasn’t long before they started distilling and flavoring their own spirits. Soon the distilling business crowed out the pub and inn. Since then they have consistently turned out specialty spirits and liqueurs. They pride themselves on avoiding mass market products, choosing to focus on tasty regional and artisanal specialties.

The first question you have to ask yourself is “what’s a Mirtillo?” Glad you asked…. A Mirtillo is a close relative of the blueberry that grows wild in Northern Europe and the UK. They are very similar in all ways, including flavor. We get the sense that they added the distinctly American word “blueberry” to the product name — Freihof Mirtillo Blueberry Liqueur — in order to tell you what it tastes like, as opposed to what’s in it. This little sipper also has juniper, lime, and ginger root. So if you’re thinking that this sounds like a Sloe Gin made with a different fruit, you are thinking correctly.

SmartAss Corner: 
To add even more regional confusion, depending on where you are the mirtillo is also known as the bilberry, whortleberry, whinberry, and blueberry.
