Distillery in the Ahrn Valley

Dr. Johannes Aichner distillery

The alchemists of the ancient world were inspired by playing with their stills.  They had the desire to make gold from base metals.  They tried to produce an elixir to enjoy eternal life and searched for the secret fifth element, the so-called ‘Quinta Essentia‘ ...

Trained as a pharmacist, I have learned how to distil medicines.  More than 10 years ago, I began to produce high-quality spirits made of natural, pure ingredients. 

The first products were made using rowanberries and the wild fruits of mountain ash.  Enjoying creating new recipes has led me to continually extend my selection of fine spirits.  In the meantime, I also distil unmixed quality fruit such as apples, pears, apricots, grapes, plums, elderberry, masterwort and red and black currents.  I am sure there are many other types of fruit, that I can use to draw their spirit into my bottles ...

Cheers!  May the fragrance and aroma of all good spirits refresh and inspire you.
