About Freihof Mirtillo Blueberry Liqueur
The alcohol industry has a significant historical reputation in Europe. Most of these companies are conduits of long-standing family traditions, perpetuating personal family schnapps recipes and traditional distilling techniques. American craft distillers are tapping into this market and making these unique European elixirs accessible to the U.S. markets.
Destillerie Freihof, W. Hämmerle GmbH & Co KG was founded back in 1885. The distilling business was developed from the "Zum Freihof" inn, which was founded in 1885. The Freihof in Lustenau was used as a guest house in the 19th century and was said to be a “popular meeting point for gourmets and Freemasons” (producer). The family-owned distillery in Freihof is now an internationally award-winning company, producing resplendent fruit brandies and schnaps classics as well as liqueurs and spirits specialties. The company’s products are made on-site at its distillery in Lustenau, Austria.
Gebhard Hämmerle and Johann Drexel are in charge of the operations at the Destillerie Freihof, producing quality spirits while passionately abiding by family traditions. The family company produces a wide array of fruit brandies and premium schnapps. Under its brand Privatbrennerei Gebhard Hämmerle, the distillery produces a comprehensive collection of traditional fruit brandies of a variety of flavors, including cherry, raspberry, apricot and Williams pear while offering specialty brandies such as rowanberry, elderberry, and quince. Destillerie Freihof also has a private reserve of exceptional fruit brandies, produced only in limited quantities, with a portion actually aged in wooden barrels.
Freihof Mirtillo Blueberry Liqueur is a “bittersweet symphony” of flavors. “The refreshing and atmospheric aroma of lime kindles creativity and joie de vivre, enabling even the most non-creative people to transform into a true Picasso. The lemons little sister with its intensive bitter taste lends itself to a lively-creative twist in Freihof Mirtillo” (Freihof Mirtillo).
