Just 60 kilometres south of Berlin sprawls the idyllic pastureland of the Spreewald, like a river delta. This lowland, with its unique microclimate, offers the best conditions for the maturing of spirits.
Here, in the middle of a biosphere reserve, is the Spreewald-Destillerie, founded in 2004 and operated by the “Spreewood Distillers” since 2016 in the picturesque village of Schlepzig. Prize-winning whiskies of the highest quality have been distilled and matured since 2004. In 2010 the whisky received the international distinction of being awarded 94 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
