It was the Romans who probably brought us the chestnut from the Caucasus. In the meantime, the warmth-loving tree has become native to southern Germany and especially to the Palatinate Forest.
Heat-loving in this context does not mean dry-loving!
Our wood for our barrel series "Eder FassStolz® Kastanie" comes from one of the most beautiful and best purchasing areas in Germany for the sweet chestnut, the Wasgau region near Trifels Castle in the heart of the Palatinate Forest!
Year after year with the end of the vegetation phase from October, November onwards, we select together with the foresters some of these trees, sometimes several hundred years old, under the aspect of sustainability and climate protection, in order to produce especially valuable wine and distillate barrels from them.
By the way, the chestnut was the tree of the year 2018!
The fruit of the trees is also used in culinary delights, whether in soup, bread or in some game dishes.
