Whisky – An alcoholic spirit made by distilling grain.
Berlin – The German capital city.
Distillery – A factory that makes distilled alcoholic spirit.
Eschenbrenner Whisky Distillery – A whisky distillery in Berlin.
I visited this distillery back in 2015.
Situated in the Wedding district to the North of the city this micro distillery & brewery is nestled in the central gardens of apartment blocks.
We found it difficult to get seated as there were many happy punters from far & wide who had come to sample the wonderful whisky , beer & tasty flammkuchen that are only available at the premises.
I tried 3 of the whiskies on offer.
Pete – aged in American oak,
Charly – aged in chardonnay casks &
Amber – aged in German spessart oak
And enjoyed them all very much.
At only 3 years old they were delightfully youthful, fruity & light – but with a nice woody influence.
The distillery continues to release various expressions and now has 5 year old bottlings to enjoy.
Do yourself a favour & pay them a visit when in Berlin.
You have to go there to sample the produce.
I promise you won’t be disappointed!
