Weis Plum Brandy is distilled from the blue oat plum and mellowed for three years before release. Produced by the same family company for over two hundred years. This dead white, dryish, potent spirit has been popular in Switzerland, Alsace and the German Black Forest for centuries. As young man who loved nature and its gifts, at the tender age of fifteen, Georg Weis brought the old family spirit recipes to light again and began to produce clear fruit brandies. Despite the interruptions of two world wars, this family distillery continues today now helmed by its 4th generation.

The distinctive split log bottle used by the Weis company to package its spirits cuts a good figure in every bar. It’s rhomboid form is textured like wood and appears simultaneously natural and refined. The design actually refers back to an old tradition: At one time, wooden forms were used in making glass bottles, which gave the surface of each side of the bottle a special texture. Weis’s split log bottles are of course made with modern industrial techniques. But they are reminiscent of the “good old days” — the times when many of the recipes for white brandies and liqueurs originated.
