Edition 42

Launched: 7 April 2022

For the opening of the manufactory on 7 April 2022, the two founders of the manufactory, Frank Leichsenring and Thomas Michalski, have come up with something very special. The Edition 42 Pur presents the Manufactory's claim to taste and quality in a very unusual way.

The edition is composed of single malt whiskies from a port wine cask, a sherry cask and a Rioja cask. Thomas Michalski, responsible for taste at the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur, paid special attention to the unique olfactory and taste experience in the nose and on the tongue.

What is unusual about the 42 Pur Edition is its appearance. The typical HELLINGER 42 bottle comes without a label in an oak box. All the details and the drawing on the label have been engraved by hand on the glass. The wooden box itself is made from one piece of oak wood and is only finished to the bare minimum. A unique piece and as pure as possible.

Edition Gründerväter

Launched: 1st Oktober 2021

The founding fathers of the Dresden Whisky Manufactory, Frank Leichsenring and Thomas Michalski, have brought their vision of their own whisky distillery to life. To mark the opening of the visitor centre, the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur is presenting the GRÜNDERVÄTER edition. GründerVäter-Edition vor.

This whisky, which is very complex in its aroma spectrum, reflects the decades-old friendship of the two founders in a special way. The GRÜNDERVÄTER-Edition was composed of single malt whiskies from one distillery that were stored in four different oak casks. GründerVäter-Edition aus in vier verschiedenen Eichenfässern gelagerten Single Malt Whiskys einer Brennerei.

All the whiskies involved were first stored in ex-bourbon casks, first fill, before being transferred to the next casks for further maturation. Thomas Michalski, responsible for taste at Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur, and master distiller Jörg Hans constantly followed the development of the aroma and character of the whiskies involved. The GRÜNDERVÄTER is composed of single malts from a cognac cask, a port wine cask, a sherry cask and a smoked whisky aged in a sherry cask. The result is a particularly complex and multi-layered taste. GründerVäter wird aus Single Malts aus einem Cognac-Fass, einem Portwein-Fass, einem Sherry-Fass und aus einem im Sherry-Fass nachgelagerten Rauchwhisky komponiert. So entstand ein besonders komplexer und vielschichtiger Geschmack.

"The whisky is very well balanced and shows great complexity. It is particularly pleasant that the smoke flavours are not too dominant and thus leave room for many other flavours to express themselves." says Julia Nourney (Spirit Judge for IWSC and ADI) in her tasting note on the Founding Fathers of the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur.

The GründerVäter is delivered in a wooden box specially developed for it.

Edition martin kesici

Launched: September 2020

Martin Kesici - rock singer, presenter, actor - has a special bond with HELLINGER 42. He came to Dresden as a song singer of the music band HELLINGER. HELLINGER, the music band, was founded many years before the Dresden Whisky Manufactory by Frank Leichsenring.

The first special edition of the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur is the Edition Martin Kesici. HELLINGER 42 Single Malt Whisky was finished in an Ecuadorian rum barrel. This gives the Edition Martin Kesici exotic notes and the slight sweetness of rum in addition to the typical HELLINGER 42 aromas.

All bottles of the Edition Martin Kesici were personally labelled and signed by hand. This makes each bottle unique.
