The farm
Tasty fruit and aromatic grapes thrive on the sunny slopes of Kranebitt above Brixen. These are turned into high quality distillates in Knöspele Distillery. “I am fascinated by the creative possibilities of the distilling kettle and the constant search for new tastes“, says Martin Rastner, the farmer., of his passion for schnaps. Tours of the distillery and tasting sessions may be booked on prior arrangement.

Knowing where it's from
The fruit for the distillery comes from the farm's own fruit and wineries. Because Martin Rastner grows everything himself, he decides which fruit is best to harvest at what time. He patiently waits for maximum maturity. This is the only way he can get the maximum aroma out of the fruit during the distillation.
Zweigelt and Gewürztraminer become grappa
Alongside apples, apricots, pears and berries are also grown
After harvesting, the fruits are processed immediately. For this purpose, they are gently fermented and then immediately "burned". Martin loves to work out new recipes. He also spends a lot of time in his own distillery. It is also important to him that the distillates have enough time to mature. Therefore, he often keeps them in old oak barrels for several years and only bottles them when they have reached their peak of taste.
The mash of fruit and berries is heated in the still
