The Baumann ice & fire liqueurs are absolute Tyrolean spirit classics. They are exclusively made at the Baumann distillery, in particular the popular GletscherEis fire liqueur. These liqueurs with high alcohol volume have interesting flavours. They are great for flambéing.
The traditional Tyrolean fire ritual is celebrated with fireproof schnapps glasses. The fascinating ice crystals in the bottles are created by the special way of producing the liqueurs and are a well-kept secret of the Baumann distillery.
Five Tyrolean glaciers, which cover approx. 3% of the area of the Tyrol, are within only 150km: Feichten / Kaunertal (Tyrol’s youngest glacier), St. Leonhard / Pitztal (Tyrol’s highest glacier), Sölden / Ötztal (The Rettenbachferner glacier has been venue of the Alpine Ski World Cup regularly since 1993), Neustift / Stubaital (Austria largest glacier ski area) and Hintertux / Zillertal (Austria’s only all-year skiing area).
Since the construction of the first glacier cable cars in the 1970ies, these “High 5” have offered an incomparable mixture of eternal ice and spontaneous fun in the snow for skiers and snowboarders, sun worshippers, people who like a great view, hikers and ice climbers.
The most famous glacier Germany’s by the way is the Northern Schneeferner at approx. 2,8000m on the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain (2,962m), which is located at the border between the Tyrol and Bavaria.
