WHISKY IN THE SNOWY ALPSTEIN

Next stop in the European jaunt this month has been Säntis, the amazing Swiss Malt Whisky Distillery in Appenzell, a town at the foot of the Alpstein mountains.

Similar to the Tasmanian whisky industry, Switzerland has been under a prohibition on distillation for a long time, only recently repealed. Säntis whisky is made by the Locher family, creators of the brewery which provides many delicious beer oak casks for the maturation of these amazing spirits.

We got to catch up with the Säntis gang, and undertake an amazing Swissky tasting in a legitimate blizzard on the mountains.

Thanks for having us guys, Prost!
