Production Process

Geist is produced either from (a) one of 32 named raw materials (fruits and berries), which are unfermented, or (b) vegetable, nuts or other plant materials such as herbs or rose petals.  (2 years after the new spirits regulation takes effect, i.e. around spring 2021, it will be possible to make the spirit from a further 4 raw materials.)  In each case the raw materials are macerated (soaked so as to extract or concentrate flavours) in alcohol of agricultural origin and then distilled at less than 86% vol..

Strength

Geist sold to consumers has a minimum alcoholic strength of 37.5% vol..

Permitted

Not allowed
