Schnaps cellar and distillery!

For centuries, schnaps has been distilled in Ottmanach using traditional methods. The first license for schnaps distillation was granted in 1780 by Empress Maria Theresa, and this historic license is still preserved by Gut Ottmanach to this day.

Our organic schnaps is made from pears and apples grown from the old varieties of Carinthian fruit trees. These trees are found around the organic estate of Gut Ottmanach as well as in the Schlosspark.

The schnaps we produce matures in our 600-year-old schnaps cellar and is bottled under the supervision of our experienced cellar master. The quality of our schnaps extends even to London, where it is appreciated and enjoyed.

Our offerings also include secret recipes for schnaps cocktails, born in a renowned London cocktail bar. We are happy to share these exclusive recipes with you free of charge.

We warmly invite you to visit our magnificent and unique schnaps cellar. In addition to the admirable schnaps cellar, you can also admire an original still over 100 years old. Furthermore, the cellar owner presents a fascinating collection of old glass bottles and antique glass demijohns.

Our schnaps cellar is also available for private celebrations or events, and schnaps and wine tastings can be arranged at any time. Come and enjoy the unique atmosphere!

We place great value on traditional harvesting practices and use only organically grown apples and pears for the production of our schnaps. These are carefully selected and sourced directly from Gut Ottmanach and the Schlosspark.
