Sasse Distillery: The only German "World Class Distillery"
Fine Brandy Thanks to old Oak Source: Feinbrennerei Sasse
Is that Korn? German liquor is typically white and clear, a brandy made from grains. However, this one is golden brown. Ruediger Sasse swirls his glass, inhales the fine aromas, sips and nods with satisfaction. Münsterland Korn stored over time (Lagerkorn) is the premium product of a family business. This business, which has been in existence since 1707 and is run by the 43-year-old, is now in its twelfth generation. Storing it for four years in old oak casks lends the prize-winning spirit its strong colour and mellow character with light fruity notes. The mystery lies in the ageing. The concept of traditional distillation from Schöppingen lives on: fresh bio-ingredients from the Münsterland region are carefully processed by hand. Added to this is the 140-year-old copper cauldron, which acts as a catalyser and removes harmful substances from the alcohol. The high-quality brandy thus extracted, like Himbeergeist (raspberry spirit) or the Cigar Special brand, are exceptional products. What's more, the distillery was nominated a World Class Distillery at the World Spirits Awards 2012, the only one from Germany and one of only 19 companies worldwide to receive this award.
