When the sun shines through the whisky snifter, the golden tones combine to create an unexpectedly beautiful, velvety note. You can immerse yourself in it, completely. It’s the same when you visit the Senft family’s distillery shop in the hinterland of Lake Constance.
Warm wood, which can be found in the furniture and the walls of the former barn, paired with the plain gray concrete of the floor, soft white, matt black and copper-colored lamps conjure up a homely flair and a coherent presentation area for fine spirits, whisky, gin and rum. Without denying the origins of the distillery: the company developed from a former fruit farm over just two generations into a top address for spirits and liqueurs. The swiveling bar stools made from old tractor seats fit into the overall picture like smiling contemporary witnesses.
The path leads over a bridge to the show distillery and the seminar room. Tastings are held here in a classy, cozy atmosphere and lots of insider knowledge is shared in small groups. Natural spruce floorboards on the walls and ceiling imitate a barn, shelves made of copper pipes take on the color of the large still visible through the glass wall. Whilst hearing – almost in passing – the Senft story illustrated on the black walls, people gather around the large wooden tables to immerse themselves in the world of distilling and the taste of the distillates. Completely.
