Still looking for presents? Why not choose the obvious: Alcohol. To make it a bit more special, i asked J. B. Labat to recommend some Zurich spirits. Here are their suggestions:
Sprängticka (left in picture below)
Zurich local Roger Schmid brews this unique drink at Binz from the Chaga mushroom. I’m sure you know that this fungus grows on birch trees and though a parasite, has a healing effect. In Nordic countries, it’s been around as tea for centuries – and now available as a digestive.
Ron Juan & Tsyri Whisky (right in the picture above) Hans Erismann burns in the fourth generation at Eschenmosen/Bülach. Aside from traditional fruit brandies, he also produces rum and whiskey.
Rosy’s Gin (left in picture below) In Feldmeilen at the Lake of Zurich, retiree Hans Kunz brews Rosy’s Gin in his flat. Last year, «Tagesanzeiger» crowned his spirit as the best Zurich Gin.
Gents Vermouth & Café (right in the picture above) HG — our well know local tonic producer – also produces a wonderful vermouth. Few people know that he also make a wonderful coffee liquor in a very limited quantity.
ED’s Rum (left in picture below) The ingredients for this rum come from the world all over, but it’s bottled at J.B. Labat in Kreis 4. Their liquid addition to Zurich’s night life.
Hof Allenwinden (right in the picture above) Behind Üetliberg, at Kappel am Albis, Christa Falkensammer brews Gin on the basis of Kirsch with the addition of juniper and herbs. The result is unique and very, very good.
