Experience this delicious, bright aperitif liqueur - a new, modern twist on an old-world spirit, kirsch, that is enjoyed throughout the Alpine regions of Europe.
Mount Rigi is named after the majestic mountain in the Alps, in the heart of Switzerland. The mountain is known for its scenic views over turquoise finger lakes, which are fed with fresh glacier water, its pure air, and its gentle sloping meadows filled with fragrant botanicals. These unique alpine flavors have been married with the traditional Swiss fruit brandy, kirsch, to create Mount Rigi Swiss Aperitif.
This liqueur is both flavorful, with subtle but complex notes, and incredibly versatile. Use as you would an elderflower or maraschino liqueur in all varieties of cocktails, or, true aperitif style, pair with tonic, sparkling wine, or beer for a new, fresh taste
Carefully selected natural botanicals from the Swiss Alps, complemented by elderflower, gentian, and rose, are married with high-proof kirsch, which has been reduced through the addition of pure Swiss water. The result is Mount Rigi, a new aperitif liqueur that brings a fresh taste to cocktails, spritzes, and more.
Kirsch is produced during the yearly June harvest of ripe cherries, which are mashed and fermented over the course of 4-6 weeks allowing the natural cherry aromas to flavor the alcohol. Copper pot distillation follows, resulting in a 70% ABV spirit.
This is then paired with the unique blend of Alpine botanicals that give Mount Rigi its delicious taste and proofed down using pure Swiss mountain water. After several weeks spent together in steel vats Mount Rigi - Flavor of the Alps is born. Founder Facts Mount Rigi was created by a Swiss father-son duo who worked in the US forest products industry. They would often speak with their colleagues and friends of their love of kirsch, a liquor traditional to Switzerland and the Alpine regions. Inspired by their appreciation and reverence for the spirit, the pair decided to craft a new aperitif spin on the traditional liqueur, something delicious and enjoyable for all.
