Swiss fruit bran­dies and “Vieil­les” boast a cen­tu­ries-old tra­di­ti­on, with the very best pro­du­ced in small fine distil­le­ries and made from top-qua­li­ty des­sert fruit. The can­ton of Thur­gau is par­ti­cu­lar­ly fruit­ful for the pro­duc­tion of 100% Made in Switz­er­land “Vieil­les” and fine bran­dies. With its abundance of types of fruit, Thur­gau is a para­di­se for pro­du­cers of exqui­si­te Swiss fruit bran­dies.

Expe­ri­en­ced fine distil­le­ries, like Stroh­wi­len-based Macar­do, use matu­re, top-qua­li­ty des­sert fruit for the pro­duc­tion of first-rate “Vieil­les” and fruit bran­dies. The des­sert fruit is fer­men­ted slow­ly and care­ful­ly and distil­led in small bat­ches – at Macar­do, tra­di­tio­nal­ly over a wood fire – in a pro­cess that goes back gene­ra­ti­ons.

While most distil­le­ries store their fruit bran­dies in steel tanks, Macar­do opts for used Macar­do whis­ky casks to age and refi­ne its fruit bran­dies. Dried fruits of the respec­tive same fruit type are also added to the aging distil­la­te. Macardo’s “Vieil­les” and fruit bran­dies ther­e­by absorb exqui­si­te fla­vors from the cask and dried fruits, which lends them their uni­que, unpar­al­leled aro­ma.
