Schonauer Apple Liqueur

Schönauer Apple Liqueur was popularized by German university students in the 1970s as the only way to start a party. This is a delicious mix of Germany's best apples and grain spirits. In 2003, Schönauer received a Gold Medal and 95 point rating from the Beverage Testing Institute. 2nd place got an 83. You can compare apples to apples but Schönauer is in a class by itself. They stated that Schönauer was sweetly tart, with baked apple flavors, and almost no discernable alcohol taste. For those who claim to love Green Appletinis, think about when you bite into an apple. What color is it? Shouldn't your appletini be the same color? If it's made with Schönauer, it will be the color of real apples. Schönauer contains no artificial colors or flavorings. Schonauer contains NO CARAMEL COLORING!

Schonauer Apfel Liqueur with 21% Alcohol is produced in the distillery which was founded in 1854. Located at Schonau estate in the Sachsenwald near Hamburd the distillery and the sachsenwald Estate belong to the Bismarck Family since chancellor Otton von Bismarck's time.

This product is typical German specialty and ranks among the best selling brands of its kind in Germany. It can be consumed straight, as well as on the rocks or mixed with soda, tonic or in a variety of cocktails.
