Schnapps – a Tyrolean speciality

Maybe there’s something in the water. Maybe there’s something in the air. Maybe… there’s something up here in the mountains. Tyrol, home to craft distillers since the 1700s, is first in the nation in distilleries per capita.

2,500 of Tyrol’s 4,000 local distilleries are permitted to distill by the royal decree of Empress Maria Theresia (1717 –1780). Over the years the quality-obsessed distillers have developed and refined their range of smooth spirits, adapting many from centuries old recipes, handed down from generation to generation, innovating new methods to create others, and picking up a few national and international awards along the way.

Tyrol is on the bucket list of schnapps lovers near and far, and for good reason. Each year, some 5 million kilograms of fruit are used to produce hand-crafted schnapps, spirits and liqueurs that boast farm-fresh ingredients and crisp snow- melt water. Along the Tyrol Schnapps Route you will find a remarkable collection of 41 artisan distilleries, and each one has its own characteristics that will vie to make it your favourite. Why you should go: an understanding of the creative science behind these beverages, tastings, and the opportunity to rub elbows with friendly and knowledgeable craftspeople. Local Distilleries are found all over Tyrol, from Inntal Valley and its side valleys to East Tyrol.
