Bauer’s Obstler is an Apple and Pear Brandy Naturally Distilled in Salzburg with Alpine Mountain Real Fruit. Our select, hand-picked fruit, gives this Obstler the scent of juicy fruit accompanied by floral notes with a medium finish. Best served chilled after a meal or simply with friends.
An old Bauer family recipe, this Obstler (“Obst” meaning "fruit" in German) dates back 4 generations of winemaking and distillation. Nearly two centuries later, we haven’t changed a thing.
