Taking a Sip of Wurtzelgeist–Wow!

PICT5924 700593
This man’s grimace comes from the strong drink he’s been passed, Baumann’s Wurtzelgeist, with Alpine herbs. It does down like fire, but the aftertaste is pleasantly herbal.  We had just come down from our long hike on the mountain and this is how the hikers like to celebrate another good hike. They also like to have these little hiking passports stamped and signed by their guides, showing where they went and when they went there, complete with little photos and the stamp from the lodge up on the mountain they visited.
