ENZO Alpin

is all about turning the yellow gentian into one of a kind beverages.          

   The gentian´s natural bitterness combined with selected herbs and spices creates the essence of our unique refreshments          

ENZO Alpin lemonade and ENZO Alpin APERO bitter liqueur.

Our products are 100% natural - no exotic pick-me-ups, no artificial knickknacks.

Truly alpine tonics made in Austria!







Shhh... It´s the yellow one!

ENZO Alpin is made out of the yellow gentian, not the blue one.

From Root to Bottle

Cultivation

Amaro Gentiana, the yellow gentian, gives our ENZO Alpin beverages their rich and unique flavour. Proud and thankful for this alpine plant we made it our mission to cultivate and preserve the yellow gentian ourselves.

Beginning Spring 2018 we will, together with a competent tree nursery, start to purposefully plant seedlings on our pastures in the Biosphärenpark region Lungau. We are more than excited to start this journey.

We will keep you up to date!

Facts

Value

Since ancient times, the yellow gentian has been used as a tonic and remedy. Amaro Gentiana is known as the most bitter natural substance there is and was a popular cure for fever back in the days.

Traditional Chinese Medicine attributes several qualities to the yellow gentian root: anti-aging, lowering insulin levels and stimulating appetite as well as the circulating system. An all natural alpine tonic!


Facts

Harvest

The yellow gentian is a protected plant and may only be harvested with permission. It takes between 7 to 10 years for the plant to be ready to be dug out.

The higher the cultivation area, the stronger are the substances that are developing within the gentian root throughout this period.

We harvest our roots at an altitude of 1.200 to 1.600 metres and are aware that a diligent harvest can have a stimulating impact on the growth of the gentian plants.

Procedure

The roots are cleaned under running water, cut into tiny pieces and dried in the alpine air.

For our ENZO Alpin products we create a natural essence out of the dried roots. Added to it are fresh ingredients, selected spices and a lot of experience to then bottle up the unique ENZO Alpin taste.
