Hämmerle Quince is good enough to change your perception of Schnaps.

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.

Unfortunately, in America “Schnapps” has a rather poor reputation as a syrupy candy drink. High quality Schnaps (note the single petter “p”) is made from the low-wine derived from orchard fruits, and that is EXACTLY what we have here. In this case, think of Hämmerle Quince as a young Brandy made from quince — the exotic-sounding orchard fruit that looks like a fat pear but tastes more like orange blossoms. It is surprisingly aromatic with just a hint of lemony-sour. And with a name like Hämmerle, of course you would make a custom bottle stopper shaped like a hammer.

In German, quince is “quittenfrucht.” There is evidence of quince planted as a crop in southern Europe since before the Trojan War.

Brandy was invented in the 16th century by a sneaky Dutch merchant who learned how to remove water from Wine and save cargo space. He then added water again and called it “Bradwijn”, which means “burned wine”.
Nevertheless, the best Brandies are required to preserve the concentrated flavor of the used fruit.
Brandies can help digestion, so they are perfect after meals. They were and are still considered medicine. Basically, any fruit that can be fermented can be distilled and turned into Brandy.
