Osttirol “Pregler”

Osttirol is rich in culinary highlights. It also offers plenty of tasty spirituous beverages. "Pregler" is the protected name for the Osttirol fruit brandy, which is distilled from local apples and pears. It is the epitome of rural, traditionally produced schnapps and an old Osttirol specialty. As the folk saying goes:

 

"Pregler gives you strength and zest for life, protects you from evil spirits and boredom, promotes digestion, the feeling of being alive and so many other things."

 

In order to create true top distillates it takes more than just the purest ingredients. A good sense of smell, a well-trained palate and years of experience are properties of the Osttirol schnapps distillers, who have been honoured over the years by winning awards for their fine spirits. The spectrum of products ranges from single-origin, clear fruit brandies to liqueurs to steeped spirits.
