Local sourcing of fresh fruit and vegetables is in. If you want to manufacture high-quality spirits, the raw materials must be of the highest quality, harvested when perfectly ripe, and processed as quickly as possible. Because a spirit can only be as good as the raw materials it’s made from. In the case of asparagus, the issue of origin was quickly resolved: when you have such famous and delicious asparagus right on your doorstep, you have to grab it. A small asparagus producer from the town of Beelitz close to Berlin told us about a particularly aromatic variety of the noble sprouting vegetable. After washing and crushing it, we macerated it for a while. During the extraction process, the substances which produce the asparagus taste and smell are resolved. These are mainly sulphur-containing substances, such as asparagusic acid and its methyl esters, and 1,2-dithiol in boiled asparagus. Unfortunately, the body converts these sulphur compounds into substances that don’t smell very nice, as any asparagus eater will already have experienced. But this obviously doesn’t prevent one enjoying the delicacy. Although the season is extremely short, our spirit gives asparagus lovers the opportunity to add a touch of asparagus to dishes such as soups, sauces or dressings. And even in bars, our asparagus spirit is used in some cocktails.
