Matthias Schulz

Distiller Diesdorf, Altmark

His great-grandfather was distilling secretly currant pomace in the laundry room, Matthias Schulz, however, carries out its activities today officially – and highly successful. For his products, he regularly brings awards back home to Diesdorfer in Saxony-Anhalt, where he runs the Süßmost-, Weinkelterei, and Edeldestille. This is a combination of cider making, fruit juices, and a distillery for fruit brandies – thus an ideal condition for high-quality fruit juice liqueurs. Matthias Schulz does not buy any additives, but produces everything himself on site. He also does not use neutral alcohol, which is often used in fruit liqueurs, but only fruit brandy. “Elaborate, but the result is appreciated above all by the female clientele”, says Matthias Schulz.
