The factory and distillery Hammerschmiede was founded in 1985 and offers exclusive brandies, spirits and liqueurs - all natural and pure. During a tour you can gain insights on the traditional manufacturing of these alcoholic drinks. Besides classic and Harz typical herb liqueurs, more than 50 high-class spirit types are created. The highlights are, next to the famous Schmiedefeuer, the "Primer Edition" obtained from local and wild grown fruit and the Harz Single Malt Whisky "Glen Els". This enjoys among connoisseurs and critics an excellent reputation. The taste is characteristically mild and straight. It is dominated by the long barrel aging. All products are manufactured in old handicraft tradition without artificial additives, flavourings or dyes in a purely natural way.
