Hardenberg – art of distilling under the banner of the wild boar
The brand with the wild boar’s head has a long tradition. Karl-Dietrich von Hardenberg established the Gräflich von Hardenberg'sche Kornbrennerei (“Count von Hardenberg’s Schnapps Distillery”) at the foot of the medieval castle ruins in 1700. The Korn (grain schnapps), that is considered one of the forefathers of grain schnapps brands in Germany, has been distilled there since that time.
Back then as well as today the estate and the associated farm provide valuable raw materials for the production of spirits. Even today, master distillers distil spirits according to that tradition and to this day the secret recipes are passed on from generation to generation in the Hardenberg family. The love, quality and care become apparent in every single bottle. Carl Graf von Hardenberg personally vouches for this with his name.
The product range under the umbrella brand Hardenberg has been constantly expanded over the years. In addition to traditional grain schnapps and fruit brandies, liqueurs such as Schwartzhog and Persico or the “fun spirit” Kleiner Keiler have also been added to the portfolio.
