Foundation & History
After a fire in 1676, the then provost established a distillery on the monastery estate. The aim was to generate additional funds for reconstruction. He thus laid the foundation stone of our present-day Wöltingerode Monastery Distillery in 1682.
The turbulent history of the monastery was marked by monastic harmony, prosperity and contentment. However, it also brought changes of confession, wars, destruction and plundering upon the monastery, thus changing it. The original values of distilling, the respectful treatment of the local nature, the honest craftsmanship according to traditional methods and recipes, as well as the awareness of the fact that everything good takes time – we have preserved this until today. And we continue it according to our philosophy.
