High above the Blautopf lies Seissen, and at its heart is where the Distillery Rössle is located.
The ripe fruits handpicked in the rural surroundings of Seissen and the greater area of Swabia mostly from very old trees and varieties are the foundation of our distillates and liqueurs. Being carefully mashed and slowly distilled, painstakingly cutting the heart from heads and tails only, the subtle substances of the fruits are transferred to the distillate.
The distillates are ageing across the years in an old vaulted cellar until they are developed to their full.
Just a few examples of our liquid treasures:
Apple and Pear

Pear, single variety
The small swabian pears like Bratbirnen, Hutzelbirnen, Albecker Birne, Gelbmöstler, Remele. Each one of them has a distinctive character. Aged at least for 3 years.
