GERMANY – since 2006
Jens Unterweger: As one of the more established independents Southern German bottler 'Whisky Fässle' are a favourite among many Whisky enthusiasts with an established reputation of consistency and excellence in their bottlings. Whisky-Fässle operates as a Whisky retailer and bottler of mostly Scottish and Irish Malts, promoting drams from other independent (and mostly small-scale) bottlers, as well as their own.
The Whisky-Fässle bottle-labels have a level of 'old school' feel to them (with adding an image of a Duck being the most recent theme).
Whisky Fässle's Jens Unterweger combines a great sense of taste with great networking and selection skills which resulted in some of the greatest releases by any German independent bottler. These include - among others - rare malts from Port Ellen, Clynelish or Littlemill, as well as a great range of other undisclosed (often Speyside) producers with 30-40+ years of age. The recently bottled 43 yo Speyside from 1973 ranked among the top Whiskies releases of 2017.
