Leibacher Biber

The Leibacher brothers lovingly produce this traditional, sweet Swiss specialty by hand.

Anyone looking for a traditional Swiss specialty is guaranteed to come across “Biber” gingerbread. This sweet delicacy made from honey, almonds and spices originated in the canton of Appenzell, but thanks to Claudio and Silvan Leibacher, now Zurich also has its own Biber tradition.

The classic and vegan Biber variants, which are produced by the brothers in the basement of their bakery, can be purchased at the following stores:
