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.

The Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur is currently being built in Dresden's Alberthafen (Albert Harbour) with all the necessary production facilities and a visitor centre.
