Etter Quince Eau-de-Vie

Since 1870, the Etter family has been synonymous with fine Swiss eau-de-vie. The contents of this bottle were distilled from over 16 pounds of quince exclusively of the region surrounding Zug. The resulting brandy evolves for years in glass demijohns before being bottled. Experience here the rich, vivid and captivating aromas and flavors of quince, notably those of rose, honeydew melon and bright citrus. Enjoy neat or with club soda.

About Etter Soehne AG

The name Etter is synonymous worldwide with fine cherry brandy, or kirsch, as well as other clear fruit brandies, or eaux-de-vie. Paul Etter founded the distillery in the Swiss region of Zug in 1870. Etter remains a family-owned business, with the fourth generation, Eveline and Gabriel Galliker-Etter, taking the reins from longtime leader Hans Etter in 2012. Kirsch was the only expression produced by Etter until 1981, when the distillery started to expand its range. The brandies gently evolve for years in glass demijohns before bottling. This glass aging is essential to reveal the uncommon depth and richness of these spirits. The classic kirsch eau-de-vie is produced using small, black cherries sourced from the best locations around Lake Zug. Full details

About Fruit Brandy

Fruit brandy, or eau-de-vie (eaux-de-vie in the plural; "water of life" in translation), is brandy made with any fruit apart from grapes. Most commonly, orchard fruits such as apples, pears, plums, cherries and blackberries are harvested, crushed and fermented, and the resulting must distilled twice. Most eaux-de-vie are bottled without ageing to preserve the integrity of the fruit character. These spirits are an important part of cultures in areas of Europe where production is most common and traditional. Full details
