The Bavarian Whisky
It all started a long time ago with Johann Baptist Schraml: With his grain distillery in Erbendorf back in the year 1818, he laid the foundation for what has now become our family’s more than 200-year distilling history. Six generations have dedicated themselves to the art of distilling with all their passion, great pioneering spirit and the highest standards.We committed ourselves to whisky more than 100 years ago, making us Germany’s oldest whisky distillery.
This very long tradition of dedication to whisky, combined with the accumulated know-how of the Schraml generations passed down to this day, is found in every bottle of Stonewood. So is the way in which we perceive whisky. The grain of our homeland determines the unmistakable character and aroma of a Stonewood whisky. Just the grain. That is our puristic concept.
We have always considered ourselves artisans.
And we act accordingly – we take our whisky in hand.
Today that would be called “craft”.
We have our own brewhouse with lauter tun and efficient, wood-fired distilling.
For raw and fine distillates.
Each of our 4 BAVARIANS has its own character, and we give them all the time they need to mature this to perfection. Thus they develop personalities. And we are with them all the way.
