Abakus - the ghost of the applemen

Each year the applemen (15) from Puch choose a strain of apples, that meets their standards for the production of the abacus.

The applemen carefully observe the progress of the different types of apples from the blossom to the ripe fruits and then select the one that is best suited for the abacus.

Schloffer's noble brandys

The Schloffer Family tries to bring the purity and soul of the fruit into their destillates. This starts with their own fruit plantage, where all fruits needed for their brandys are planted, except for apricots and blackcurrants. Their noble brandys like quince, old apple or sour cherry have already won many awards and can be bought at their farm.
