Let’s delve into the intriguing world of Uisge Beatha, also known as whisky.

In the early 1980s, a revolution began in the whisky industry. While not as monumental as the introduction of the Coffey still in the 19th century, it involved a new type of whisky still. Distilleries worldwide started using stills originally designed for other spirits to create whisky. Let’s explore some of these fascinating distilleries:

Blaue Maus Distillery (Germany): Located in the village of Eggolsheim in Frankonia, southern Germany, this distillery was one of the pioneers. Robert Fleischmann, the mastermind behind Blaue Maus, produced whisky in a schnapps still. His single malts include intriguing names like Schwarzer Pirat, Krottentaler, and Spinnaker. These whiskies are distilled twice from non-peated malt and matured for about eight years.


Zaiser Family Distillery (Germany): In Köngen, the Zaiser family distills their whisky from a blend of malted barley and unmalted grains. Their whisky matures in a variety of casks, including sherry casks, bourbon barrels, and even some from Bruichladdich. The result is a unique expression of German whisky.


Christian Gruel (Germany): Also in Owen, Christian produces a single grain whisky from malted barley and wheat. His whisky matures in sherry casks, bourbon barrels, and toasted Schwabian oak casks, creating a delightful flavor profile.


Thomas and Monika Rabel (Germany): In the same village as Christian Gruel, the Rabels store their single grain whisky first in earthenware vessels for two years and then in oak casks for up to six years. This unconventional approach adds character to their whisky1.
Volker Theurer’s Distillery (Germany): Near Tübingen, Volker produces Black Horse Ammertal whisky. Distilled twice, this single grain whisky spends two years in German oak casks and then another six years in sherry and bourbon casks. The name of the whisky has a charming family story behind it—Volker’s grandfather had a black horse named Prinz.


While Uisge Beatha has a rich history, it continues to evolve, and these alternative distilleries contribute to its diverse landscape.
