The distilling of schnapps has a centuries-old tradition in Tyrol.
Diligence, dedication and a lot of knowledge about the cultural asset schnapps have made the Tyrolean distillers known far beyond the borders of the country. At national and international awards, the Tyrolean distillers are always to be found in the top field. The more than 4,000 distilling rights in the Tyrol show how widespread schnapps distilling is in the Tyrol.
