The JOSEF XO is a single barrel Weinbrand, that aged for more than 10 years in an oak barrel. After this long time it was filled, labeled, packed in leather, knotted, sealed and signed by hand. You don’t have to be named Josef to to pour you this really noble drop. It is a masterpiece of the Weingut MUSTER.GAMLITZ. A gift and thank you from son Reinhard to father Josef.
The brandy was elaborately designed. Everything was specially selected, from the glass bottle to the leather of the bag. Care was taken to source as much as possible from the region. For example, the bag sews a seamstress from a nearby community. The label is finished with a copper hot foil stamping, the bottle is sealed with coppery seal wax. Overall, there are only about 800 bottles, so each is numbered by hand. A special drop in an appropriate shape, this Josef XO.
