"A traditional herbal liqueur

from home with the pure taste

of nature."

The Story

During the renovation of grandma Wilma's house in the Taunus village of Heftrich, a small bottle came to the surface under the old floorboards. On the faded label, the writing "Taunus-Tropfen" was barely visible. Otto the local carpenter still knew the herbal semi-bitter from earlier times and told Thomas and Dave that it was most likely produced or at least sold as Taunus-Tropfen in the 1970s in Schmitten, which is located directly below the Feldberg. The fascinating find did not let them go. During their search, it was possible for them to purchase a still unopened bottle of the Taunus-Tropfen from an auction house in England. This bottle has been guarded like a little treasure ever since. 

 

Thomas, who grew up in the rather rural Idsteiner region, and Dave, who grew up on the outskirts of the metropolis of New York, were certain: they wanted to bring the Taunus-Tropfen back to life. As different as their backgrounds may seem at first, their love of the Taunus is what they have in common! For some, the Taunus has always been home, for others, the Taunus has become home.

 

Since their discovery, the two Taunus lovers have been thinking about a new edition of the herbal liqueur from the area. It would take another four years before their dream came true, but they were that much prouder when they held that first new bottle of Taunus-Tropfen in their hands.

 

The Distillery

On the edge of the Taunus and with a view of the Feldberg is the village of Dauborn. This village is known for its century-old grain distillery tradition. A partner was found in the Kilian distillery, which has committed itself with the dedication to the craft of distilling and maceration. The highest quality of raw materials, care in the distillation and maceration processes, balanced barrel storage and many other fine details, are always at the forefront in the production of their products. In cooperation with the traditional family business, a herbal liqueur was created and produced exclusively in small batches making it stand out from the rest.

 

The Taste

The herb liqueur impresses with its complex aroma and its special mildness. The herbs, various local berries, woods and other fine ingredients used, ensure its special character and unique tasting experience. Cold macerated and stored for a few weeks, the Taunus liqueur matures to a very distinctive quality. The taste is a reflection of the Taunus with its deep forests full of natural monuments, prominent peaks and wide valleys. There is a hint of the Taunus in every bottle.
