When thinking about Germany and alcohol, the first thing that comes to one’s mind is probably Oktoberfest and German beer. But Germany also has a growing whisky production. There are many small distilleries, and most of them are not only focused on whisky production. That is why no strict law on whisky maturation is applied to German whiskies. Whisky is sporadically being produced in around 250 German distilleries, and around 130 of them are focused only on whisky production.
