Drop-in Tasting: Juice & Schnapps from Wetter

IMG_9036.JPG

On the 4th of October we'll be pouring some delicious fruit juice and schnapps (eau de vie) from Wetter. This artisanal Austrian producer works almost exclusively with old varieties of fruit that's rarely seen in commercial production. Everything is done by hand in the orchard and only the best quality fruit makes the cut. 

The fruit juice is gently pressed using a traditional basket press and bottled unfiltered in order to preserve depth and complexity of flavour. Wetter's schnapps is distilled using the same method as Cognac - double distillation in copper pot stills. This is some of the finest eau de vie we've ever tasted. Trust us, this is not a spirit you'll want to knock back!

Tickets are £5 and are available to buy on the day.
