This is a bitter made from natural brandy flavoured with a gentian root. It is ideally suited as an aperitif, as it aids digestion and has a soothing effect on the stomach. Gentian is one of the oldest medicinal herbs known to man; it was even used to cure the plague. According to Dr. Kneipp, this brandy is the best remedy for stomach-related problems and is therefore a must-have in every garden. A sip of gentian brandy is always greatly appreciated by rock climbers fighting with cold and fatigue, as it restores their energy and reinvigorates their muscles.
