The "OM" to the "mmmhhh"::
Manni makes today saihan gfaltige liqueurs
First he has studied German Philology and Economics in Germany and good money. Then he went to, made the Reiki Master and trained yoga teacher in India. He is an expert for natural liqueurs on La Palma: There is talk of Manfred Heinrichs from Cologne, the since almost 30 Living for years on the "Isla Bonita". The La Palma 24-Journal has visit Manni on his finca in La Punta.
Manfred is actually the classic drop-out. 1986 put the Chernobyl Katasthrophe his emigration thoughts in motion, shortly thereafter he urlaubte for the first time on La Palma and was specifically looking for a plot of land in order to relocate. Manni found on the north side of the island and built a House on the slopes of the village Tijarafe, where he today with his Partner Deborah block lives and works - also the two years look after young people with problems from Germany. Manfred looks back to the early days:
My original work plan for La Palma was to give yoga classes, but that didn't work out due to lack of interest. There were simply too few German, and the Palm Eros have called so me as a brujo - Witcher-. They were afraid of me, because I sat and meditated on my terrace.
Up to four hours of yoga a day Manni allowed himself to the change of the Millennium. Today he is indeed always still spiritually interested in, but no longer so esoteric as it once was. And so, the meditative "OM" was now replaced by the "mmmhhh": the people, try the Manfred's liquors. How to get the sound of the absolute to experiment with absolute alcohol and fruit, Manni?
It all started, that so many oranges grew on my Finca, Nobody wanted to have. Since I have processes it according to the recipe of an old book of preserving to a few bottles of liqueur. I gave the out to friends, including restaurateurs like Roland the former Oveja Negra or Heidi of the Franchipani. You were all terrific my BREW. Then I've done a loquat liqueur, because Níspero trees of lots of grow on my Finca. And then I read about on the Internet and books, further experiments, much poured away and eventually found my way.
Which is to be expected paved with bio components such as Reiki-Master. Not only, get all the fruits of the world biosphere reserve of La Palma, Manni are artificial flavors and preservatives in of his company, founded in the meantime Palmapur Licores an absolute counter:
All ingredients of my spirits come from my own garden, I've called Ökofinca "Tres Pinos". My Finca has the CRAE certificate of the Ministry of farming in the Canary Islands as a part of my products. Even the sugar and alcohol are organic in the CRAE liquors. In addition I'm liqueurs without this certificate, are up to 25 Percent cheaper, because only the fruits, but not the sugar and alcohol have the expensive environmental evidence.
But regardless of whether full- or half-ecological, Manfred in the gentle cold maceration process produces both types of liqueur. Say: Since nothing is heated. Rather mature the fruits or herbs with alcohol, Sugar and spices - how it should be for La Palma completely tranquilo - three to six weeks in broad-based stemmed bottles, the Manni must shake every day:
It's all hand work, that makes almost any more as I. During the storage period, the alcohol causes the natural color- and flavourings, as well as minerals and vitamins slowly from the fruits. At some fruits such as the prickly pear, I have several times seven and press, to get the extract. Just so you get a strong, aromatic bouquet and a unique natural taste. Many manufacturers shorten this process by the addition of aroma- and dyes from, There's ruck - hypothetically the "coolest" liqueur. I guarantee it, no additional flavouring substances used in my liqueurs.
Manfred also stresses, its high-quality honey with their gentle manufacturing to exhibit even medically effective ingredients. So, a jar of prickly pear could have an antioxidant effect, the guava will be like small stomach- and bowel problems, and Manni is recommended due to its soothing properties for the evening hours its herbal liqueur. But that's not all, What makes the liqueur creator come up:
My lemon liqueur is very popular with the ladies, you always say, which is better than limoncello. Then I mazeriere depending on the time of year from Orange liqueurs, MEDLARS, Mulberries, Grapes, Bananas, Quince and Kiwi. There are also coffee liqueur, and since two years I'm a guava chili mix. Currently expeI rimentiere with a new variety of anise, so I scho.. n Beautiful Results.
