Description
Originally, the aquavit comes from Scandinavia - since the early modern era, such a spice-flavored brandy is called. Eleven spices were selected for our Bremer Kööm aquavit in cooperation with the Bremen wine and spirits store Julius Kalbhenn. Among them are caraway and dill seeds, and - very typical for Bremen - kale!
Sensory description
  • Herbal notes and accents of honey on the nose, balanced herbal flavors with a delicate, non-dominant caraway note on the palate - that's what distinguishes our Bremer Kööm.
Production
For our Aquavit, we mix neutral alcohol with water, caraway, dill seeds, dill tips, bitter orange, orange, coriander, fennel, anise, clove, and cinnamon. A typical ingredient from Bremen is also added: kale! This special blend of spices determines the character. The alcohol from this maceration is slowly distilled again in a small 130-liter fine brandy still after a certain period of time. It is no longer neutral, but smells and tastes of the spicy aromas of the botanicals. This raw product then spends a short time in the maturation warehouse to allow the ingredients to bond and round out the flavor. We have chosen a freshly emptied red wine barrel from our winemaker friend Tim Kalbhenn's winery Klumpp in Baden as the maturation barrel. The maturation time of three months is deliberately short to achieve the beautiful copper tone. The filtration is done using activated carbon. Only water is used for dilution during bottling. No flavorings or sugars are added. It is also not diluted or blended.
