#Allthere for a garden party: specialities from the Südheide region
Enjoy a wonderful summer’s evening with family and friends in the Südheide region: it’s warm, the late sun casts long shadows, everyone’s in the garden and having a great time. No wonder, as the scent of sizzling sausages and steaks wafts through the air – a glass of ‘Dröge Plum’ (‘dry plum’) is served as an aperitif. While it might not sound that tempting to outsiders, ‘Dröge Plum’ is actually the regional expression for an excellent plum brandy, produced in a farm distillery 15 kilometres to the east of Gifhorn – and it’s part of a proud tradition. First-class spirits have been distilled there since 1706.
