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.

Saxon Winegrowers' Edition - Part 4
Teil 4

On 15 November 2023, Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur presented Edition No. 4 of the Saxon Winegrowers' Edition, which was matured in Cabernet red casks from the Hoflößnitz organic winery in Radebeul.

"We were happy to approach Saxony's only city winery for the current edition," says Jörg Hans, master distiller and managing director of Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur. "The fact that it is also Saxony's only organic winery makes things particularly interesting - even if this means that the 'Hoflößnitz' whisky has not become organic whisky."

The new edition will be available in our visitor centre from Thursday, 15 November 2023.

Whisky refinement on board the PD DRESDEN - now available

The HELLINGER 42 edition "WEIßE FLOTTE SACHSEN - PD Dresden" was refined on board this ship in specially produced German oak casks. Prior to this, the whisky matured for several years in bourbon casks. Both the movement of the ship and the constant change in ambient temperature lead to an intensive development of the flavours. The special climate of the Elbe Valley and Saxon Switzerland also influence the flavour of the whisky.

The edition WEIßE FLOTTE SACHSEN - PD DRESDEN is available at the Visitor Centre of the Dresden Whisky Manufactory, online or in the WEIßE FLOTTE shop on Georg-Treu-Platz in Dresden.


Edition: 450 Bottles

0,7l, 46% Vol.,
Price: 79,- €/Bottle

HELLINGER 42 presents


The swinging musical comedy

Whisky, swing & testosterone - the men's evening at the Boulevardtheater Dresden follows in the footsteps of the legendary "Rat-Pack". This is also the name of Ben's cool bar, to which he has invited his buddies for a men's evening. Dinner jackets, patent leather shoes and untied bow ties, old wood and young drinks, a whiff of whisky and testosterone in the air characterise the atomic atmosphere on this evening.

The HELLINGER 42 special edition is the ideal companion for a successful men's evening. This whisky is only available at the Boulevardtheater Dresden during performances and at the visitor centre of the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur.

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 Manufacture and its divisions

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

On this page you can follow the construction work in the manufactory. We will regularly inform you here about the current status.
