The Höhler Brennerei was founded in 1895 and is now run by its fourth generation.
Initially, Holger Höhler mostly produced fruit and grain brandies in his traditional family distillery in Aarbergen near Wiesbaden (Hessen). When in 2001 a friend offered him corn for distilling, the successful offbeat idea was born to have a go at whiskey making. The fruit of this experiment was “Whesskey®”: one of the finest German whiskeys. In 2004, when the first keg was tapped, it immediately won the title “2004 Best Whiskey on the European Continent” in Jim Murray’s international “Whiskey Bible.” The first bottling sold out in just a few days.
