Like Winnetou in the prairie – Croatia

Stairway to Borovica

© Jochen Hirschfeld

Along with our oft-cited botanical curiosity, it’s our practically obsessive quest for the highest quality that leads us out on annual botanical expeditions to our suppliers. Like Winnetou rinding across the prairie, our search took us to the Dalmatian coast near Plitvice, where we finally encountered the perfect juniper aroma. The juniper`s unique characters starts with the earth in which it grows. For millennia, the bushes have been sp...

It’s a form of conditioning that stands in contrast to our obsession with variety and innovation. Why do distillates and spir...
