Dresden's charm and Saxony's soul

Whiskies distilled according to the Scottish model, perfected with Saxon perfection. This is how we create single malt whiskies at the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur that reflect the soul of Saxony with their character and their taste. Martin Brambach, Tatort detective, actor, author and connoisseur regularly inspects the progress of production.

Scottish tradition meets Saxon craftsmanship.

Saxony offers everything needed for a good single malt whisky - barley, water and yeast. But also passion, a love of traditional craftsmanship and the know-how to implement state-of-the-art production methods. And of course the atmosphere and history of the Saxon residence Dresden. This is how we create a whisky that is Saxon through and through, the enjoyment of which not only reveals its unmistakable taste, but also lets you feel the charm of Dresden and the soul of Saxony.
