Good things take time, and that also applies to many inspirations. The impetus for something new came from pharmacist Alexander Ehrmann during a tour of New York's China Town. There he found a "pharmacy", which on closer inspection turned out to be a bar. With very short opening hours and packed with people. The bartenders, however, did not offer the guests a classic bar menu, but inquired about the respective wishes of the customers. The wishes were not whisky types, cocktails or long drinks, but rather physical or mental needs. Whether invigorating, concentration-enhancing, calming or against headaches, the bartenders neatly noted down terms on recipe sheets and disappeared. They returned with drinks containing a selection of different herbs. Drinks made from carefully selected herbs, in small quantities, but with concentrated plant power. So a pharmacy after all? It was to be a few more years before this impulse sprouted again in Apotheker Ehrmann. According to the motto "no more, but better", the idea was to fall back on tradition, but at the same time to create something modern, regional and above all effective. What could be better suited than the heroes of the local plant world that grow on our doorstep? And partners who share this passion with us and support us with their know-how. Hubert Peter and Michael Andert were just as passionate. An award-winning bartender who focuses on natural drinks and approaches and an organic Demeter winemaker and herbalist with a lot of experience in the gentle use of nature. The Apothecary Tonics were born!
We are the 4 Apothecary Tonics | Power Packs of the Plant World
Apothecary Tonic Energizer: Some say: Fire away - because with the selected plant heroes rowan, chickweed and rue, I give you an extra portion of energy right away. I give you stamina if you ever have a breakdown. A true bundle of strength, I also contain 20 other regional herbs from wild collection. I focus entirely on you - in just one tonic shot. Apothecary Tonic Relax: I consist of lemon balm, hops and silver fir - we belong together - and so we not only taste extremely good, but also help you when you urgently need rest. Combined with 20 regional herbs from the wine-growing region and macerated into compact tonics - perfect for stressful times or simply to relax before bed. Apothecary Tonic Digestive: My origin is wild, unplanned and grows where it pleases. Many call me a weed because I am extremely adaptable, others see me as the hero of the plant world. Besides 20 regional herbs, I consist of dandelion, rhubarb and juniper. This makes me extremely important for purification, because I help with digestion and ensure well-being. Apothecary Tonic Hangover: With my natural power from gentian, bloodroot and masterwort, I not only protect myself, but also you, after overindulgence, from a nasty hangover. I help you to successfully get going again the morning after if you are not feeling well. You can enjoy me as a pure shot, or pour mineral water over me.
