What is life without the freedom to do the things you love, to live your dreams, enjoy your world?
When you feel that freedom you can spread your wings, like a mighty swan and show the world who you were always meant to be.

At KRAUSS we take freedom very seriously. It is at the core of who we are, of what we do and what we stand for. There is truth and elegance and beauty when you connect with the purity of nature. In that spirit we are distilling only the most precious local and international ingredients with smooth alpine water to our handcrafted essence of freedom – freedom you can enjoy.
KRAUSS Distillery
That´s the Spirit!

We started our journey to freedom in 2007, when we began to create our spirits in the garage of our home. Today people from all over the world enjoy our creations, which are still hand crafted. We might have left the garage behind us, but we took the "spirit" of our humble beginnings with us – That freedom to do the things our way and as we believe them to be good and worthy of our effort.



 
 

 

There are no
compromises

Linie

Pure and smooth mountain water from the Kor Alps is the base on which the taste can really unfold. All fruits, grain, herbs and other ingredients, that grow here in Styria, are sourced from regional farmers, which we all know personally and trust. Ingredients, that partly come from far away, are sourced only from partners that we can trust. We are not in a rush when it comes to quality. This is because we want to wholeheartedly stand behind the products that get into our bottles. There are no compromises. Because when it comes out of the bottle, it should always be only one thing: the purest joy.

 



Superior quality as a promise




Exclusive Line – Luxury at its best

– Whisky, Rum, Gin, Anise, Vodka, Brandy –

 
 

Distillery Krauss Rum: coquetting with the yeast

Rum is the spirit which is most affected by the choice of yeast and the fermentation conditions. We use two different yeast strains which results in two unique rum flavours varying from banana to honey, ananas and other fruits. Combined with the oak flavours of vanilla, caramel, biscuit and smoky notes you may start to an exciting journey of taste.

Distillery Krauss Whisk(e)y: find the difference and taste the uniqueness

Whiskey or Whisky? No problem, we produce both. We offer corn-based Whiskey similar to Bourbon, but also Grain and Malt Whisky. All our Whiskies pass through the same manufacturing process at our distillery but are so different and unique. Taste the wonderful and complex fusion of cereal spirit, oak and best mountain water.

Distillery Krauss Gin: feel the powerful pureness of juniper

Gin is a very interesting playground for every progressive distiller. There are so many botanicals and fruits for creating different Gins and so much tasteful statements to make. We define our Gins as London Dry Gin if there is nothing added but water after maceration and distillation and as Dry Gins if something natural like saffron is added or maturing in oak cask is done. The goal of all our creations was to have a very intense Gin but definitely also one that is clear and pure.

Distillery Krauss Distilled Anise: enjoy the sweetness of the seed

Anise is always the last one to try in our tastings because of its intensity. Anethole is the essential oil in anise seeds. It is very tasteful and sweet. That is why our Distilled Anise tastes so sweet although there is no sugar added. If it is just mixed with cold water or ice cubes are added the Anise shows its density and full aromatic profile.

Distillery Krauss Flavoured Vodka: flavoured by nature

The flavours for our Organic Flavoured Vodkas are carefully handcrafted in our garage distillery out of best organic raw materials. Compounded with the organic base alcohol these flavours from nature lead to a perfect smooth and delicate experience.



Danger Line - Easy lifestyle for everyone

G+ Gin by krauss: feel the powerful pureness of juniper

Gin is a very interesting playground for every progressive distiller. There are so many botanicals and fruits for creating different Gins and so much tasteful statements to make. We define our Gins as London Dry Gin if there is nothing added but water after maceration and distillation. The goal of all our creations was to have a very intense Gin but definitely one that is also clear and pure. To serve a perfect Gin and Tonic the mixing-ration for our Gins is 1 : 5.



Vermouth 700 - When tradition meets modernity

– Vermouth –

 
 

Vermouth 700: a little bit bitterness in the drink but not in your face

Wormwood is the main botanical of Vermouth. Its bitterness influences the overall impression of the Vermouth, but it has to be balanced and not too much. Excellent Vermouth convinces neat just as well in a cocktail.
