Apfelkorn 01.JPG

Apfelkorn is a sweet apple flavored liqueur made from 100% wheat spirits (like a wheat vodka) blended with sweet, ripe apples; it was invented in Germany in the 1970s, the original being made by Hans Berentzen and Friedrich Berentzen. It is technically considered a Schnapps, but is very naturally sweet, and has about half the alcohol,caution should be taken as it will freeze or slush in a cold freezer. Apfelkorn was the first of a number of "new" similar liqueurs entering the German market from the late 1970s onwards.

The brand range

In the brand range ApfelKorn is still the leading product, the variety of tastes being a spread of fruits which are naturally growing in Northern Europe with an alcohol content between 15 % and 20 %. Today the product range exists of some other Apple tastes as well as Saurer, Pear, Peach, Cherry, Plum, Black Berries and others. All products are based on “Korn” with natural fruit juice, the drink is sold in characteristically square Berentzen bottles of different sizes.
