The grain distillery and the agricultural business in Sulingen have been family owned for about 250 years. The ensemble of buildings is largely built in
half-timbered construction and over the past years, decades and last two centuries, have been constantly modernized to meet technical and operational needs. Nevertheless, it has been possible to
preserve the original building structure, the half-timbered character of the annexes and additional buildings as far as possible to retain the typical local architectural style.
After researching ten years long and due to the fact that the Spirits Monopoly Law has been abolished, we have decided to maintain the old structures and
continue to use them to house a still a distillery. The solution is the manufacturing concept. The old distilling techniques will not only be preserved, they will even be broadened and revived.
In addition, the distillation process will be openly presented to consumers. The halls are open, production processes will become transparent, the old techniques will be explained and
We are going to comb through our old recipes and, if they have not been on the market, like for example, our old Magenbitter, we will introduce them to the
public. The shape of the original bottle used in the old distillery in 1779, has been has been brought back to life and is being used in
today’s Magenbitter line. In brown and in clear glass. These bottles are reserved for the premium products, i.e. those that are manufactured in the in the distillery, true to the original
recipes with herbs, spices and self - made fine distillates.
Today’s turbulent times are marked by turmoil. We would like to keep the ways of old. Therefore, we have planned extensive investments to preserve the old
distillery for future generations. We have chosen to form a non-profit organization, whose goal is the preservation of the buildings, the old techniques and an ongoing crisis-independent
operation in the historic city center of Sulingen.
