Rhubarb Liqueur 23,4 % vol
Matthias Schulz, who is the fourth generation to manage the Diesdorf fruit press and distillery in Altmark, a region in Saxony-Anhalt, and liqueur expert Gerald Schroff from the Preussische Spirituosen Manufaktur in Berlin have joined forces for RHABARBER 960. Their liqueur is based exclusively on home-made rhubarb juice, rhubarb eau de vie and sugar – not even water is added. The rhubarb variety >Holsteiner Blut< has notes of green apple, grapefruit and subtle raspberry aromas. The finish reveals lime aroma and the typical flavor of rhubarb due to oxalic acid.

Holsteiner Blut: The rhubarb variety 'Holsteiner Blut' has blood-red colored stems. The stems, which are rather thin in comparison to other rhubarb varieties, show a pronounced ribbing on the back and have deep grooves on the inside. The flesh is green to pink, sometimes stained red in the lower stem. The leaves have a dark gray-green color. The leaf blades are highly vesicular and have a conspicuous wavy edge. 'Holsteiner Blut' has a very good and rhubarb-typical taste with a pronounced acidity.
