Mount Rigi Swiss Liqueur
Experience this delicious, bright aperitif
liqueur - a new, modern twist on an old-world spirit, kirsch,
that is enjoyed throughout the Alpine regions of Europe.
Mount Rigi is named after the majestic mountain in the
Alps, in the heart of Switzerland. The mountain is known for its scenic views
over turquoise finger lakes, which are fed with fresh glacier water, its pure
air, and its gentle sloping meadows filled with fragrant botanicals. These unique
alpine flavors have been married with the traditional Swiss fruit brandy,
kirsch, to create Mount Rigi Swiss Aperitif.
Carefully selected natural botanicals from the Swiss
Alps, complemented by elderflower, gentian, and rose, are married with
high-proof kirsch, which has been reduced through the addition of pure Swiss
water. The result is Mount Rigi, a new aperitif liqueur that brings a fresh
taste to cocktails, spritzes, and more.
Kirsch is produced during the yearly June harvest of
ripe cherries, which are mashed and fermented over the course of 4-6
weeks allowing the natural cherry aromas to flavor the alcohol. Copper
pot distillation follows, resulting in a 70% ABV spirit.
This is then paired with the unique blend of Alpine
botanicals that give Mount Rigi its delicious taste and proofed down using
pure Swiss mountain water. After several weeks spent together in steel
vats Mount Rigi - Flavor of the Alps is born.
