Langatun Swiss Single Malt Whisky

The Swiss Whisky Distillery

In the 1850s, Jakob Baumberger, a successful brewer, founded a distillery in the Swiss town of Langenthal. Whilst the family's business in brewing prospered, they eventually were forced to close the distillery during World War II due to rationing measures. The ban on the distillation of grain and potatoes was not repealed until 1999, and with that Hans Baumberger, Jakob's great-grandson, decided to pursue his ancestor's distilling dream. Starting on a small scale, Hans distilled his first spirit in 2005. Langatun quickly gained a first class reputation for their sherry and wine cask matured Swiss Whisky, and in 2014 Langatun moved to a larger site, a 400 year old former Kornhaus, or grain store.
