Etter Kirsch Cherry Brandy 375ml
The name Etter is synonymous with Swiss Kirsch, made by the same family since 1870. In this bottle is distilled more than 10 pounds of fresh mountain cherries exclusively of the region surrounding Zug. The brandies gently evolve for years in glass demijohns before bottling. Kirsch is famously enjoyed sipped neat after dinner, or as aperitif mixed with club soda. In cocktails it pairs magically with Génépy. In the kitchen, it's an essential ingredient in a traditional fondue. The cultivation of cherries near the shores of the Zugersee lake dates back at least 600 years, with the first cherry distilleries appearing in the area in 1846. Farmers and producers banded together to form the “Kirschwasser-Gesellschaft in Zug” in 1870 to protect and promote true “Zuger” Kirsch brandy. Kirsch from the Zug AOP stands out for its intense concentration, ability to improve over years of aging in neutral vessels, and a prominent almond note, which comes from the high concentration of cherry pits in each production.
