During the renovation of grandma Wilma’s house in the Taunus village of Heftrich, a small broken bottle was found under the old floorboards. On the faded label, the writing “Taunus-Tropfen” was barely visible. The local carpenter still knew the herbal semi-bitter from earlier days and told Thomas and Dave that it was most likely produced or at least sold as Taunus-Tropfen in the 1970s in Schmitten, which is located directly below the Feldberg.
On the edge of the Taunus countryside, with a view of the Feldberg mountain, lies the village of Dauborn. In this village, known for its century-old grain distillery tradition, a partner was found in the Kilian distillery, which has devoted itself with dedication to the craft of distilling and maceration. The highest quality of ingredients, care in the distillation and maceration processes, balanced barrel storage and many other fine details, are always at the forefront in the creation of their products. In collaboration with the traditional family business, a herbal liqueur was created by hand, which is produced exclusively in small batches making it stand out from the rest.
A unique product from the Taunus: deep forests full of natural monuments, high peaks and sweeping valleys inspire the authentic taste of our herbal liqueur. Macerated with fresh spring water from the “Golden Grund”, it brings a bit of the Taunus to every bottle.
Carefully selected botanicals in perfect harmony: the complex aromas of herbs, liquorice roots, limousine wood, local berries and other fine ingredients give our Taunus-Tropfen its distinctive character.
With precision, craftsmanship and heart: our herbal liqueur is produced in small batches in the traditional artisan way and bottled by hand. Cold macerated and stored for several weeks, it matures to a very distinctive caliber.
Curiosity, passion, the best ingredients and the highest quality standards: This is what connects us with a number of partners in retail and cuisine who have added Taunus-Tropfen to their portfolio or serve it in their own establishments. They too, have committed themselves to regional delights – with heart and soul and each with their very own style. We are happy to be part of it! And we would be delighted if you were, too.
