Birds - Botanical SpiritRiesling Based
The team at Birds start with a Riesling wine from Manuel Brixius, who is a 7th generation winemaker. Each bottle is distilled from 5 litres of fruity Riesling and is macerated for four days with 12 handpicked organic botanicals to create that distinct and exotic flavour.
The spirit is then hand-bottled (700 bottles per batch), from the distillery in Hamburg.
12 botanicals from 5 continents:
Europe - blackcurrant, apple, orange peel. Africa - voatsiperifery pepper, clove. America - cocoa shell, angelica, pink pepper. Asia - star anise, liquorice. Australia - mace, eucalyptus.
