Preservation and reforestation of local orchards

Orchards are Hessian cultural assets that are characterized by the ancient, regional plants. Around Frankfurt am Main is Germany's largest contiguous orchard area .

We continue to promote and preserve these wonderful landscapes, the livelihoods of family ancestors and countless animal species to this day.

In the spirit of sustainability, Hochstadt and the surrounding area are being reforested with organic Champagne Reinette and other old apple varieties .

3 centuries of family knowledge

DR. HÖHL'S – For the love of the region – since 1779

For 9 generations, everything in our family has revolved around apples. Based on this long family tradition, we produce valuable natural products from and with apples, just as we did back then.

Whether BioEss apple cider vinegar, our fine POMP cuvées or the alcohol-free organic aperitifs from POMP: With every creation, maximum enjoyment is just as important to us as the well-being of those around us. We want others to benefit from our existence.

Mit Liebe gemacht

Der Essig schmeckt super gut, bekommt gut und toll ist, dass er ohne Sulfit und Bio ist. Schnelle Lieferung und gute Verpackung Alles schön, vielen Dank!

Gehört ab jetzt zur Grundausstattung in unserer Küche

Also, ich kannte Apfelessig von früher und meine Mutter rührte mir oft einen Getränk aus Wasser, Honig und Apfelessig an, das sind aber auch die letzten Erinnerungen an Apfelessig. Nun hat meine liebe Freundin mir eine Flasche von diesem Apfelessig geschenkt und mit jeder Anwendung wurde er mir lieber.. als die Flasche dann leer war habe ich noch am gleichen Abend Nachschub bestellt. Ich nutze ihn für Salate, zum Verfeinern von Gerichten, ich trinke ihn im Mineralwasser und ja, der Geschmack ist wundervoll und auch das Design und die Flaschen sind mit viel Herz gestaltet worden. Tolles Produkt!

Ich nutze die Mischung gerne um meinen Gerichten den letzten Schliff zu verleihen. Und meine Tochter ist ganz verrückt danach die Rezeptur in ihr Wasser zu gießen. Tolles Produkt, und ganz natürlich!!!


Sehr lecker.


Ich nehme ihn täglich als kleine Kur.


Sehr gutes Produkt
