The 4 BAVARIANS from the Steinwald

We have four whiskies in total, our “4 BAVARIANS”:

a single grain whisky,, our “cult Bavarian”, is a 10-year single grain whisky. This rare classic is considered Germany’s historically oldest whisky.
Stonewood Woaz (Bavarian for “wheat”), the “native Bavarian” made from wheat and barley malt fermented with weissbier yeast, matures into an aromatic single wheat malt whisky.
Stonewood Drà (northern Bavarian for “three”) is our third whisky. This “elegant Bavarian” has an appealing, clear, single malt aroma.
Stonewood Smokey Monkthe “smoky Bavarian”, is a single malt whisky made from beech smoked malt, a type of malt traditionally used in northern Bavari

Although their character could not be more different, all of our whiskies share a unique culture, nature and style. They are Bavarian!
