People often ask us: “What is it, a raspberry or strawberry?” The answer is unequivocal, because, from a botanical point of view, it is a variety of the strawberry. The Latin suffix ‘Mieze Schindler’ refers to the wife of the director of the State Institute for Horticulture in Dresden, Professor Otto Schindler, who bred the variety from two other varieties almost a century ago. At first glance, it looks very similar to a raspberry and is probably the most aromatic strawberry variety with a distinctive wild strawberry aroma. Cultivating the strasberry calls for a degree of enthusiasm on the part of our Southern German strawberry farmer. This is because the variety is regarded as not very productive and the fruit is not particularly storable. Also, as it only forms female flowers, it has to be planted in between other varieties to ensure pollination. The particularly intense aroma is well worth the effort, however. The strasberries were harvested for us at peak ripeness and immediately deep frozen to preserve the flavours until maceration. From a botanical point of view, the strawberry is not a berry but an aggregate accessory fruit, i.e. the tasty red part of the strawberry is a false fruit because the actual fruits are the small nuts on the surface. But there’s nothing false about our spirit. It’s an exceptionally intense, aromatic strawberry spirit with the very special wild strawberry aromas of the ‘Mieze Schindler’ and therefore we recommend drinking it neat, or for use in the kitchen or bars.
