Wein-Bauer has added a new addition to their Bauer’s Spirit line up with the release of Bauer’s Bierschnapps, an alcohol with natural beer flavoring from Vienna, Austria. The all-natural, gluten-free alcohol joins Bauer’s Obstler, an apple and pear brandy, to create the first duo of its kind. With a remarkably smooth finish, the 60-proof alcohol also inspires creativity when it comes to mixology, as it has the ability to be mixed in cocktails, enjoyed neat or even used to strengthen a beer.
First created in 1923 when Manfred Bauer’s great grandfather, Leopold, bought a local Austrian brewery and transformed it into a winery and distillery. Leopold distilled the leftover beer from the brewery creating the first ever Bauer’s Bierschnapps. Production came to a halt at the start of World War II. Now, almost 8 decades later, Manfred brought his family tradition back to life.
Wein-Bauer is currently partnering with major bars in key cities to introduce the spirit with live music, beer stein shot glasses and tastings.
