Three speciallyselected cherry growers supply us with these sour cherries in accordance with our special wishes. The cherries are hand-picked and only when they are completely ripe. Hand-picking is a time-consuming activity that takes place long after the normal cherry-picking period. Careful fermentation follows, during which the fruit sugar converts naturally into alcohol. Etter is committed to this special cherry variety, since for years Hans Etter has enjoyed this all-natural speciality kirsch together with a fine Cuban cigar on a relaxed Sunday evening: two exquisite products of character that delightfully complement each other. Because the quantity of good-quality sour cherries available every year in Switzerland is limited, the sour kirsch is bottled with the precise vintage year on the label. Before that, it matures for many years in 50 litre demijohns under the rafters of an old barn in accordance with an old tradition. The finesse, strength and harmony of flavours provided by this kirsch have turned many a kirsch-lover into an absolute connoisseur.
