With the production of the first spirits in 1985, the Hercynian distillery did not start making whiskey until 2002. To be more precise, in 2002 they filled the first casks with NEW MAKE SPIRIT. In 2005, the first Harz single malt whiskey was finally born, as the law requires whiskey to mature in wooden casks for at least 3 full years.

History of the Elsburn (Hercynian) distillery

The history of the Hercynian Distillery dates back to 1985, when the first spirits were produced. However, the company only started producing whiskey in 2002, when the first barrels were filled with NEW MAKE SPIRIT. It then took another three years until the first Harz single malt whiskey saw the light of day in 2005. This point in time marked the birth of the whiskey manufacturer.

A crucial factor in the production of whiskey is barrel aging, which is required by law and must last at least three full years. During this period, the distillate matures in the barrel and develops its typical aromas and flavors that make the whiskey unmistakable.

Since then, the Hercynian distillery has developed into a significant producer of single malt whiskey in the region and is known for the high quality of its products. The whiskey is offered in limited editions and is very popular among connoisseurs and lovers worldwide.
