Germany’s First Rye Whiskey Distillery

Why Beer, Wine and Spirits? This is a different segment that highlights companies and entrepreneurs on a different way of story telling – travel documentary. These are stories of entrepreneurs in the beer, wine, and spirits industry, and we can learn a lot from the way other founders have started their breweries, wineries and distilleries and see the world with Jeff Bradford.

Steffen Lohr, Bastian Heuser and Sebastian Brack, Three autodidacts with a passion for handcrafted spirits went on a road trip at the end of 2015. Their adventure was on Dorfstraße in Schlepzig, approx. 60km south of Berlin.

They were actually on their way to Brandenburg’s oldest whisky distillery to buy a cask of whisky. They drove out of Berlin and into Germany’s breadbasket, past countless rye fields, and into the Spreewald Biosphere Reserve, a primeval pastureland, in which the Spree spreads out into a river delta.

They stood in the courtyard of the Spreewald distillery and the owner told them that he was looking for a successor, they all knew straight away that this was where Their adventure was and that their journey had just begun.

  1. Can you please reupload this video without all this music? It is really distracting and gives the video a vibe i don't like.

  2. @valuetainment when are you gonna interview freeway Ricky Ross? He has a lot of street smarts and business smarts. I think he would be a perfect interviewee for your channel. PS not the rapper
