Spirits of Berlin

Brandstifter Berlin

Berlin is a party capital and when people party they drink alcohol. The logical consequence: a lot of alcohol is being consumed in our city. Berlin wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t for some of the unique spirits that are produced here. Yes, you will probably have a hard time finding the Peppermint Schnaps Berliner Luft or the beautifully simplistic Our/Vodka Bottle somewhere outside of the city, even though they enjoy a good and very unique image around the world.

The most important spirts of Berlin after the jump…

Held Vodka

Held Vodka has established itself on the scene as a popular drink since 1921 – it’s known to be pure, honest and very drinkable.

Probably the coolest vodka brand in town, with a wonderfully simplistic bottle that almost counts as a water bottle.

Berliner Sommer/Winter

What does the beautiful Berlin Summer taste like? The answer is: organic apple juice, vodka, lime and wild baby’s breath. And the tough Winter? The answer is: cloudy organic apple juice, vodka and seasonal spices.

Cheers, everyone!
