HISTORY

The Brennerei Ziegler was founded in Freudenberg am Main in 1865 and has since stood for distillation expertise at the highest level. As a brewery with a distilling licence, the company was already writing history back then. Ziegler still today manufactures its products on the original site in Freudenberg (Baden-Wuerttemberg) in the midst of the idyllic countryside on the bight of the Main near Miltenberg.

Then as now, the distillery is run with plenty of dedication and spirit. Our eyes are fixed on the future without forgetting our traditional values. Real manual work has always been carried out for the production of our fine distillates. From the fruit harvest to the labelling of bottles – at Ziegler, everything is done by hand. In such a way, the Brennerei Ziegler, as a manufacturer with particularly high quality standards, has managed to become one of Germany’s leading distilleries. Nowadays, every bon viveur knows the name Ziegler and the fine eaux de vie, spirits, liqueurs, whiskies and fruit vinegars from the distillery in Freudenberg am Main.

An important milestone in the history of the distillery came in the 1980s, when the fine eau de vie Wildkirsch Nr. 1 was introduced. This allowed the manufacturer Ziegler to make the move into fine dining. With its cask-aged eaux de vie and the 3-litre bottles, the fine fruit distillery established itself in the German landscape of indulgence in the following years. In 2008 came the introduction of AUREUM – the first Single Malt Whisky from the Lower Main valley. It is a homage to the history of the distillery, which originally began as a beer brewery. Tradition brings with it an obligation!
