Welcome to Austria’s 1st whisky distillery

In 1995 the Haider family set the course for a new future. What was formerly known as a farm has become one of the top distillers of spirits and liquor. It all started twenty years ago when an economic shift caused by entry into the European Union brought along the idea for a family business whose mission was clear: distilling must be an experience of all senses. It was only three years after the Haider family had started that they would finally present their magnum opus: Whisky.

Today, their highly acclaimed rye whisky has set international standards and is experienced by people from all over the world. This year is guided by the motto 200 years of tradition (four anniversaries need to be properly celebrated), which is exactly why we are proud to present the following: 20 years of Waldviertler whisky J.H., 10 years of whisky- adventure world, 110 years of Waldviertler Roggenhof and last but not least, we are proud to announce that Johann Haider, the founder and mastermind behind it all, is turning 60.
