THE MACERATION OF THE HERBS IN GURK CATHEDRAL

CULTIVATION, CARE AND CUTTING OF PLANTS

In the spring, the plants are cultivated and nurtured in the cathedral garden according to the specifications of organic farming. The first plant cut takes place around mid-June. The herbs are cut by hand, sorted and neatly packed in boxes.  

DELIVERY OF THE HERBS TO THE CATHEDRAL CHAPTEL

The herbs are immediately transported to the Cathedral. There they are weighed and checked for cleanliness, varietal purity, moisture and freshness. 

HERBAL EXTRACT

The herbs are then steeped in alcohol for a few days to extract the valuable ingredients.  

STORAGE OF HERBAL EXTRACT

After the period of storage, the herbs and the extract are separated. This extract is stored sorted in stainless steel tanks. For the Gurktaler Alpenkräuter the herbal extracts are mixed into a ratio that remains a strictly guarded secret.

Gurktaler verdankt seinen milden Geschmack der Zugabe von frischen Kräutern aus dem Gurktal.

The mild taste of Gurktaler is thanks to the use of fresh herbs, foraged from Gurktal Alpine mountains around the Gurk river valley.
