Hotel Wenzel – Closed
Im Schiffchen – In the little ship
Allerlei – All Sorts
We didn’t find many fading ads on our recent trip to Germany. We stayed in Köningswinter which used to be hoidy-toidy. Hotel Wenzel is now closed and didn’t look as if it will ever reopen, bar Im Schiffchen (‘in the little ship’) has seen better days. Loved our stay though. Saw good art in Köln and Bonn, ate lots of Bratwurst and Salzkartoffeln. Köngswinter, all in the Hauptstrasse.

What is Gentian?
Gentian is tall flowering plant whose root produces a bitter product that is frequently used as a tonic and a bittering agent for the near gamut of vermouths, amari and apéros (a French aperitif). Gentian-based apéro, as we’re discussing, uses the pulverized roots of Gentiana lutea (yellow Gentian) as a primary element in bittersweet liqueurs. Gentiana lutea is a wild native of the alpine region and is found en-masse in the mountainous terrains of the Tyrol, Burgogne and Auvergne regions of Central Europe. – The Liquid Culture Project
