Reisetbauer distillery

Austria


The Reisetbauer family farm, Kirchdorfergut, is located in the Hausruckviertel district of Upper Austria. Because of its favourable soils and a climate with wide fluctuations in temperature, it is one of the best Austrian regions for growing fruit. The fruit for the distillery, ranging from Williams pears and apples to apricots and rowanberries, is cultivated on 18 hectares surrounding the huge four-sided farmhouse complex with its interior courtyard.

An indispensable ingredient in making high-quality distillates is the perfect quality of the fruit. That is why the Reisetbauer family tends the orchards with the utmost of care, beginning with expert selection of trees adapted to the special growing conditions, continuing with rigorous pruning to reduce yield and improve quality, and ending in the harvest, which is conducted in numerous stages to guarantee that the fruit has been ideally ripened.

The Reisetbauer brand has been distinguished with several awards since 1998, amongst which the awards for "Best Austrian Distiller" in 2014 for the 5th consecutive time and the "À la Carte" trophy in the Gourmandise category in 2006 by the Austrian Culinary Guide "À la Carte", as well as the award for "Destillery of the Year" in 2012 by "Vinaria Magazin".
