The first Vorarlberg single malt whisky is an indulgence in the truest sense of the word. True whisky lovers drink it at a temperature of 16 to 18°C – without ice, of course! Walter Pfanner’s single malt is a harmonious way to round off a good meal and goes well with cigars and animated conversations.
The history of the Pfanner business began more than 150 years ago with an inn and a small brewery. Soon afterwards it produced spirits and fine liqueurs. Today, Pfanner is particularly well-known around the world for its fair trade fruit juices and iced teas. “The hare is representative of our large nature reserve, the Lauteracher Ried, which is not dissimilar to the Scottish Highlands with its diversity of flora and fauna. At the same time, it also embodies honesty and sensuality – which can be found in our whisky,” explains Walter Pfanner.
The first single malt was produced in 2005. High-quality summer brew barley is the base for approx. 10,000 litres of whisky that are bottled each year. Used sherry and sweet wine barrels, as well as local mountain spring water ensure a full-bodied whisky that impresses with its complex aroma and bitter taste.
