Bettina says:

We take a shower, put on […]


on the essentials


It has always been important to us to primarily focus on what goes IN the bottle and not what’s put ON the bottle. We do not compromise on the quality of the raw materials, the recipe, the distilling process, the maturation or the filling.

This award is particularly humbling because we have done so well with a Styrian “bourbon” in the country it’s origin (officially we cannot call it a bourbon, but the recipe corresponds to a bourbon). This special whiskey is […]

New Logo – That’s the spirit

Some of you who were paying attention have already noticed: we have a new logo! The swan is still there, but we added a new font to the word “Krauss” and added the word “DISTILLERY”. Why have we done this? Somehow we combine the old logo with our garage and with Carmen and Werner as a team of two. But […]
