Passion for high quality distillates

As one of the few distilleries in Switzerland, we first produce Snowside Vodka from 100 percent Swiss barley as the basis for our Lakeside Gin. For our single malt whiskies, we also use malting barley grown especially for us in the region. This is of course also malted in Switzerland. Visit our unique boutique distillery and immerse yourself in the world of grain distillates.
