Mystery of Monastic Liqueur in Ettal Distillery

The history of liqueur creation in the distillery at Ettal Abbey began with herbal infusions that monks used as drugs. Trying different recipes from the bark, roots, vegetable oils, fruits and handing down the most successful ones from generation to generation, the monks made up a collection of liqueurs, which have won recognition in Europe. In the XIX century, when the church lost control over the Abbey, a secret of the monastic liqueur turned out to be in hand of the Bisceglie family. In the second half of the XIX century, they opened the first pharmacy in Garmisch and restored the production of liqueur...

However, when in the XX century the Ettal Abbey revived again and monks came back here, liqueur started to be produced again in the distillery. According to the production technology of this drink, infusions are stored in large oak casks in a cellar for at least half a year, then they are filled into bottles of a shape patented in 1911. You will derive pleasure just from looking at the liqueurs of different colors! Yellow liqueur is honey- and saffron-infused, the red one is filled with the flavor of blueberries and contains only 25% alcohol, unlike the strong and bitter brown liqueur with 45% alcohol.

But the main secret of the Ettal distillery is a green liqueur consisting of 40 herbs! Also popular are liqueurs from hay, a bitter liqueur on the basis of hops and sugar-free "clean" liqueur. The distillery organizes excursions. Here you can also taste and buy the famous liqueurs.
